Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450593
package install with high errors crashes smart
Last modified: 2009-04-15 03:22:16 EDT
Description of problem:
filed bug 450423 -conflict in packages causes X error messages about resources
smart and gpk-application act the same and crash when huge error file is
generated- no clues are recorded in logs and conflict is not reported and pkg
may be common gnome package with gpk-application
yumex succeeds - (allocates enough space for the errors generated?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Smart Package
everytime one of the conflicting packages was already installed
Steps to Reproduce:
1.launch update with kernel-xen-2.6-doc-220.127.116.11-1.fc9.noarch already
3.commit and wait for the crash
please refer to bug 450423 for complete details and attachments
Additional info:please refer to bug 450423 for complete details and
filing bug for gpk-application also
also filed bug 45094 with gpk-application
How does smart crash, segfault, silent exit, core dump? What is the exit status?
pls read details as above filed in 450423
gives silent exit
only info found when launched from a command line
what was left is reported in bug 450423
of 3 software install systems ,
1 worked (yumex , it reported the errors-huge output of error listings)
2 crashed in X (smart this bug ,and the default update package manager bug
450594- that in X left no trace . run from the command line(to launch the gui)
the window reported an X error details at bug 450423 )
common library/code error?
It might be a default gtk buffer size. Have you tried w/o --gui?
Could you open a ticket with smart upstream?
