Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 433125
Kernel Oopses; Gnome applets crash on start
Last modified: 2008-03-15 11:09:25 EDT
Description of problem:
I got several oopses with the kernel, and several Gnome applets (Fish, CPU
Frequency Scaling (this is a dual-core i686), perhaps others) crash on start.
Only the Show Desktop Button showed up (I've got Show Desktop Button, Fish,
Clock, CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor, setroubleshoot, Power Manager, Network
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Booted once with dire results, didn't try again. With
kernel-22.214.171.124-28.fc9.i686 the same applets work fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
Got reported by kerneloops too.

Xorg.0.log when X crashes on x86_64
On x86_64 with the same kernel, X doesn't start ("X respawning too fast", etc).
Who on Earth is 188.8.131.52, why are they trying to connect here?! The IP
belongs to a machine in Brazil.
I'm certainly not sure because i just saw BZ 433339 just a second ago, but all
of the WARNING() stuff in dmesg looks to be a seperate and unrelated issue.
They shouldn't be harming anything other than system performance and wasting log
space. If you don't mind, would you please post your auditctl -l output into BZ
433339 and attempt to verify that the appearance of these WARN messages in dmesg
do not coincide with a failure?
I take that back, it is possible that BZ 433339 is sending SIGKILL to your
apps... So this one might want to wait a bit till I can get that one fixed to
see if they are the same problem (as an alternative, remove all audit rules and
see if that fixes this bug, if so, this is a dup)
How do I remove audit rules? I haven't touched anything there AFAIR.
O, BTW, with the last Gnome (gnome-settings-daemon-2.21.91-3.fc9.i386) I see
lots of other problems. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=434772
for details. And this is with the last working kernel-184.108.40.206-28.fc9.i686
Now it works, and has for a while.
