Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432644
hal deamon segfault
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:54:43 EST
Description of problem:
hal daemon segfaults with specific rules. I'm trying to find the best rules for
pilot-link package - the rules i chose at the end are in fc8 cvs now. They seems
to be right for me - pilot-link is working with them but when they are initially
used after the upgrade to new pilot-link package they kill the hal-daemon. It
seems to me as a pilot-link bug. For now this issue blocks the release of fixed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.grab suitable package from
try to sync a palm
hal daemon segfaults
hal daemon will be ok
The log from /var/log/messages file which is produced is:

Ops - sorry in the 0th comment there should be it seems to be hal bug :).
The same bug does not appear if I use only a part of rules from *.fdi file from
koji build - but I have not find any system/reason for this behavior.
I can reproduce this bug myself - so I can test fixed version too.
