Description Ralf Corsepius 2008-12-10 10:53:39 EST
Description of problem:

openvrml-player doesn't work on FC10 (cf. below)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Almost always (cf. below)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "openvrml-player"

Actual results:

After being started, nothing happens for several seconds, then an error message is being issued and openvrml-player come up with an empty window only displaying a text-entry.

$ openvrml-player
** (openvrml-player:3389): CRITICAL **: Browser creation failed: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

When selecting "Open" and pointing the file browser dialog to a *.wrl file, occasionally this happens aft:
ERROR:openvrml-player/curlbrowserhost.cpp:345:void openvrml_player_curl_browser_host_load_url(OpenvrmlPlayerCurlBrowserHost*, const char*): assertion failed: (host->priv->browser)

Expected results:

Additional info:
* This issue seems to start after launching openvrml-player for a second time after system bootup.
* I would not want to exclude this issue being related to the current dbus mess up in Fedora 10.

Does one of these programs use a system service?
Comment 2 Braden McDaniel 2008-12-10 14:02:25 EST
openvrml-player uses openvrml-xembed. openvrml-xembed is a system service.
Comment 3 Ralf Corsepius 2008-12-19 03:59:45 EST
After the dbus package has been reverted, this issue seems to have vanished.

=> IMO, a clear case of dbus mess-up.

Any dbus tracker bug available? Reassign this BZ to dbus?

I also see this bug

Comment 5 Braden McDaniel 2009-07-07 02:31:21 EDT
Looks like this was probably D-Bus bustage.

Anyone still observing these symptoms, please file a new bug.
