Description Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-28 19:29:31 EDT
Description of problem:

After I update my T61p on Sunday to latest rawhides updates ( 27.04.08 ), 
dbus and console kit started to segfault. 

[root@localhost ~]# grep segfault /var/log/messages && uname -r && rpm -qf
/bin/dbus-daemon && rpm -qf /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon

Apr 27 22:22:23 localhost kernel: dbus-daemon[3176]: segfault at 7fa5392c0300 ip

Expected results:

No Segfault

Additional info:

Dick Gordon: National Security Agency.

Martin Bishop: Ah. You're the guys I hear breathing on the other end of my phone.

Dick Gordon: No, that's the FBI. We're not chartered for domestic surveillance.

Martin Bishop: Oh, I see. You just overthrow governments. Set up friendly dictators.

Dick Gordon: No, that's the CIA. We protect our government's communications, we
try to break the other fella's codes. We're the good guys, Marty.

Martin Bishop: Gee, I can't tell you what a relief that is... Dick. 

Mother: Okay, boss, this LTX-71 concealable mike is part of the same system that
NASA used when they faked the Apollo Moon landings. They had the astronauts
broadcast around the world from a sound stage at Norton Air Force Base in San
Bernadino, California. So it worked for them, shouldn't give us too many
problems. :)
Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2008-04-29 11:57:34 EDT
Why do you think it's a kernel bug when user programs segfault?
Looks like two different bugs -- one in dbus and another in ConsoleKit.
Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-29 16:59:39 EDT
Why don't you remove the kernel then from the summary and move the bug then
against dbus?
Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2008-04-30 14:10:34 EDT
Bug 440349 looks like something similar, but with a low frequency, and
has some backtraces from gdb attached (apparently they are "weird" -
maybe a stack is smashed?).  See also comment #5 in bug 440349
for apparently analogous observations from a 32-bit F8 installation.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 06:20:39 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 5 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-07-16 08:53:47 EDT
This can be closed as FIXED have not noticed this since F9 final came out 
+ it was filed against wrong component will file against correct one if
I come across this again.
Comment 6 Emmanuel Kowalski 2008-08-05 12:00:09 EDT
I've had the same segfaults, also on a T61p, twice since yesterday:

After these, the X server crashed.

These were the first such occurences since I installed FC9 after it came out, but I don't see any particularly suspicious RPM installed in the last few days:

In both cases, the crashes occured while or just after watching a DVD (with VLC).

If you can get a stack trace, it would help a lot:

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 20:30:38 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  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 '9'.

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 9'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 9 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: 
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 09:58:22 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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.
