I cannot seem to reproduce this bug on my F8 and I don't have a rawhide machine

I'll try to reproduce it during the week-end.

kdebluetooth seems to be incompatible with the current upstream bluez version.
I'll see if I can solve it myself (given the fact that upstream is more-or-less

Can you figure out where in the source code the failing D-Bus call is located?

Comment 4 Juha Tuomala 2008-05-06 14:46:10 UTC
Well, this doesn't crash anymore. But if i check both boxes for lock operations
and then flip-flop the bt in selected phone, it doesn't do anything, no screen
lock whatsoever.

Subject: crashes --> doesn't work

eh...today is odd day number (7th) so it *crashes* again.... grrr. 

same error as in inital comment.

kdebluetooth is horribly broken under F9. Seems like a compatibility problem
with that latest bluez.
As upstream is completely dead, I'm trying solve the problem myself.
Hopefully a solution will be found before F9-release. (But I'm not very optimistic.)

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 8 Steven M. Parrish 2008-06-21 17:14:58 UTC
Is this still an issue?  Please give us an update, and even though upstream may
seam dead go ahead a report it to them and add upstream info to this report.
