Description i fennell 2008-06-09 19:10:51 UTC
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 
install fails 

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 

How reproducible:
everytime one of the conflicting packages was already installed

Steps to Reproduce:
1.launch update with kernel-xen-2.6-doc- already 
2.select kernel-doc-2.6.25
3.commit and wait for the crash

please refer to bug 450423 for complete details and attachments
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:please refer to bug 450423 for complete details and 
filing bug for gpk-application also

Comment 1 i fennell 2008-06-09 19:15:37 UTC
also filed bug 45094 with gpk-application

Comment 2 Axel Thimm 2008-06-14 06:06:44 UTC
How does smart crash, segfault, silent exit, core dump? What is the exit status?

Comment 3 i fennell 2008-06-15 17:28:51 UTC
pls read details as above filed in 450423
smart --gui
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?

Comment 4 Axel Thimm 2008-06-15 18:53:47 UTC
It might be a default gtk buffer size. Have you tried w/o --gui?

Comment 5 Rehan Khan 2008-07-06 09:40:02 UTC
Could you open a ticket with smart upstream?
