kazehakase-webkit: crashes when trying to open any url
Last modified: 2009-04-17 14:06:22 EDT
Description of problem:
kazehakase-webkit crashes when trying to open any URL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa kazehakase* WebKit-gtk
Same with kazehakase-*-0.5.4-2.fc8.1 from updates-testing (I wonder why that one
is not in updates along with other packages in FEDORA-2008-3283).
Steps to Reproduce:
Start kazehakase, type any URL to address bar and hit enter, or run kazehakase
$ kazehakase www.fedoraproject.org
(kazehakase:3485): Kazehakase-CRITICAL **: kz_tab_label_new: assertion
(kazehakase:3485): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_show_all: assertion
`GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed
(kazehakase:3485): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_show: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET
(kazehakase:3485): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_notebook_insert_page: assertion
`GTK_IS_WIDGET (child)' failed
(kazehakase:3485): Kazehakase-CRITICAL **: kz_notebook_get_sibling_tab_label:
assertion `KZ_IS_TAB_LABEL(label)' failed
Maybe there is some missing dependency on my system. I just did 'yum install
kazehakase-webkit' and all its deps.
Well actually this is a issue. Would you try (assuming you are in
- just launch kazehakase (withOUT passing any URL)
- select "Edit -> Preference"
- first select "UI level" and choose "Expert" then push "Apply"
- next select "Browser", set "Layout engine" to "webkit_gtk", then
- then type a URL in a URL bar
If you still see crash, then it maybe that higher WebKit is needed
(actually on rawhide WebKit svn31787 causes just crash). If such
case, would you try the following?

Typing URL in address bar or providing it as command line argument does not
render the page. Links from bookmarks panel load fine (well, I just tried
couple of pages and got one crash during that).

Will see if I can find some F9 machine to test.

After very quick test, I see no obvious difference between
WebKit-gtk-1.0.0-0.8.svn32416 and WebKit-1.0.0-0.8.svn31787.
Problem with URL loading mentioned in comment #3 seems to vanish if I explicitly
provide http:// protocol specifier. It seems kazehakase does not assume it as
default protocol as other browsers do.
Setting Preferences -> Browser -> Layout engine to Default still causes crashes
with new WebKit.

Yes, _It seems_ that kazehakase always sets that the default engine is
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:
The problem and its fix still exist on Fedora 10.
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.
Reopening. Actually at least on rawhide I found the fix for this
(actually, a typo...) and I guess the same fix can be applied for
