Description Mary Ellen Foster 2008-04-19 13:54:30 UTC
Description of problem:
Whenever I log out of KDE, I get a window saying that knotify crashed. I finally
managed to get a backtrace; note that I may be missing some debuginfo packages
so this may not be useful.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

knotify crash log

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-04-19 13:58:33 UTC
Looks like something is screwed up in either Phonon or xine-lib.
Installing kdebase-runtime-debuginfo and xine-lib-debuginfo should get you a 
better backtrace.

Comment 3 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-04-21 10:22:19 UTC
I can't get it to crash any more; if it does, I'll grab the log and post it here.

Comment 4 Lukáš Tinkl 2008-04-21 12:31:33 UTC
OK, for now no bug, reopen if the problem persists.

Knotify crash log with better debuginfo

It just crashed again (on logout), and I now have the debuginfo packages, so
here's a better backtrace.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 09:44:02 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2008-05-23 14:55:58 UTC
I see this from time to time, maybe 1 in 10 logouts, certainly not *always*, 
but ymmv.

knotify crash dump from crash at kde4.04 logout

Before kde4.04 the crash showed too briefly to get any output, but now the
crash window holds so that there is time to capture the dump.

Comment 9 mb 2008-05-25 18:54:34 UTC
Same issue here, running kdebase-4.0.4-2.fc9.i386.

Before 4.0.4 the crash dialog flashed by too quickly to read.  Now it will stay
until you close it.

Happens occasionally, not always.

Have you found this problem in KDE 4.0.5?

Comment 12 Anne 2008-06-27 10:38:10 UTC
I did not see it when I logged out a few minutes ago.

Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2008-09-06 18:18:40 UTC
2 things to try:
1.  see if it's still reproducible with kde-4.1.0 (currently in udpates-testing, but hopefully coming soonish to stable updates when these start flowing out of infrastructure again).
2.  report remaining issues upstream to bugs.kde.org

Comment 14 Steven M. Parrish 2009-02-06 17:14:53 UTC
Is this still an issue with 4.1.4?  If so please report upstream.

Comment 15 Anne 2009-02-09 15:45:25 UTC
I have not seen this problem since I reported Comment #12

Comment 16 Steven M. Parrish 2009-06-07 23:20:10 UTC
Based on previous comments going to close this as WORKSFORME.  Feel free to reopen if the problem returns.
