Loudmouth crash when async DNS resolv fails
Last modified: 2008-12-09 23:36:40 EST
Description of problem:
Empathy in F10 and rawhide will not connect to a jabber.org account. It gines 'Network error'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
loudmouth-1.4.3 and 1.4.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure a jabber.org account in Empathy
2. make sure 'Encryption required' is off (different bug)
3. wait for it to connect
looking deeper it's actually
assertion failed in asyncns.c
jabber.com accounts work
upstream has a fix (tested the patch against loudmouth-1.4.3 from rawhide, works for me on 3 machines)
but it's not yet in the upstream tarball as of yesterday
It should be sufficient for you to track the upstream bug and just rebuild for Fedora once the patch is in. It would be extra nice if you could include the patch in the Fedora 10 and rawhide package until upstream has included it.
loudmouth-1.4.3-1.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.

Confirm 1.4.3-1.fc10 fixes the bug. Closing
re-opening, so bodhi can close it when it's pushed to stable
