knotify always crashes on logout
Last modified: 2009-06-07 19:20:29 EDT
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
Looks like something is screwed up in either Phonon or xine-lib.
Installing kdebase-runtime-debuginfo and xine-lib-debuginfo should get you a
I can't get it to crash any more; if it does, I'll grab the log and post it here.
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.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

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.
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?
I did not see it when I logged out a few minutes ago.
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
Is this still an issue with 4.1.4? If so please report upstream.
I have not seen this problem since I reported Comment #12
Based on previous comments going to close this as WORKSFORME. Feel free to reopen if the problem returns.
