Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 448198
Orca crashes at startup.
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:55:56 EST
Description of problem:
Starting Orca screenreader results in Orca attempting to start but suddenly
crashing after reading a line.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(taken from "yum info orca")
Nome : orca
Arch : i386
Versione : 2.22.1
Release : 2.fc9
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start orca (both from command line and from Alt+F2)
Orca crashes just after the start. However, at least, it seems to start as, some
seconds after the crash, you can hear the voice synthesizer reading the line
displayed before the crash: "Abilitare l'eco sulla parola? Inserire sì o no"
Not to crash. :-)
Output from command line:
Benvenuto nelle impostazioni di Orca.
Abilitare l'eco sulla parola? Inserire sì o no:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/orca/orca.py", line 996, in

EOFError: EOF when reading a line
Bug also occurs on x86_64

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
