Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-02 13:33:23 EDT
Can you please install the following debuginfo packages and submit a new
backtrace?  Thanks.

Comment 3 Chris Runge 2008-04-02 14:10:19 EDT
sure... where do I get the debuginfo packages?
Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-02 14:53:50 EDT
I believe there's an RHN channel for them, but I'm never been real clear to me.
 If you're behind the VPN, I usually just grab them from brewroot.


(Make sure these links agree with the package versions you have installed.)

Comment 6 Chris Runge 2008-04-02 15:45:29 EDT
Note: backtrace occurs with regularity when starting Evolution the first time
for a new login session. Exiting and restarting Evolution without logging
out/logging in again does not appear to cause the problem as much/at all.
Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-02 15:57:48 EDT
The new backtrace looks good.  Thanks.

Evolution appears to be dying in its CalDAV module.
Comment 8 Chris Runge 2008-04-02 16:54:44 EDT
That sounds right; I just received another backtrace when someone sent me a
calendar invite.
Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2008-06-17 14:32:52 EDT
Chris, could you possibly attach a calendar invite here that causes the crash
for you, so we can try to reproduce it for ourselves?
Comment 11 Chris Runge 2008-06-17 17:30:01 EDT
Unfortunately I no longer have access to a system with this software installed.
Comment 12 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-07-21 19:04:06 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

Ouch, the data seems to be crucial for this report to be fixed properly.
Comment 15 Milan Crha 2009-02-10 09:04:05 EST
I reinvestigated and based on the source lines, it seems your uri in a CalDAV preferences was broken, thus the soup_message_new returned NULL.
This had been fixed recently, in bug #477815. We can backport that fix.

> sure... where do I get the debuginfo packages?  

For posterity, you can grab debuginfo packages from RHN or public FTP server.

Máirín has a redirector to proper FTP directory:

On RHEL5, you should be able to fetch them from public FTP using:
  yum install foo-debuginfo --enablerepo rhel-debuginfo
