k3b causes session crash when opening project files from "open with" dialog in GNOME
Last modified: 2009-01-09 01:00:32 EST
Description of problem:
K3B causes a session crash and X restart when trying to open a project file
using the "open with..." dialog in a GNOME session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a CD/DVD project in K3B, save the project
2. Try to open it from the "open with..." menu in GNOME
GNOME session and X crash.
K3B to open with the file loaded.
This may not be directly related to K3B as such, but to other KDE applications
as well. Amarok has also crashed GNOME and X once when trying to open an audio
file using the same method.
On the surface, this appears to be more a bug elsewhere (not in k3b or amarok).
Operations as you describe shouldn't be able to crash your entire session, ever.
Reassigning gnome-session (for lack of better component). Let's see if we get
more feedback and information to diagnose what's going wrong for you.
can you press ctrl-alt-f1, login as the user, then
gdb attach (pid of gnome-session)
press enter, ctrl-alt-f7 and reproduce the crash? After you've done that, press
ctrl-alt-f1 again, type "bt full" press enter and attach the output.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
