Description of problem:
I have been updating my machine weekly with the latest snapshots of the pre-released kde-4.2.0 without much issues. Once I installed the final snapshot of 4.2.0, plasma reliably crashes on me on startup. I will attach the backtrace as a followup.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up laptop
2. login from kdm
3. once desktop appears notice kde crash handler for plasma
the desktop is useable, just no plasma, which means no sidebar and all the other plasma goodies
plasma loads fine and my desktop is customized to my liking.
I know this is part of the kde-testing.repo. But I wasn't sure to file this bug, so I thought I would start here.
1. rpm -q kdelibs
2. please attach your
kde-testing repo currently doesn't have -debuginfo pkgs, you may need to fetch (at least):
(corresponding to your kdelibs build)
to get a worthwhile backtrace.
Could you check your Plasma related packages version? If you have installed them.
rpm -q kdeplasma-addons
rpm -q kde-plasma-quickaccess
rpm -q kde-plasma-runcommand

new stack trace with installed kdelibs debuginfo
alright, so now that I know where the plasma config files are, I moved plasmarc and plasma-appletsrc to *.orig and rebooted. The problem seemed to have gone away. I guess I had a bad plasmaoid. :-(
Sorry for the noise. Thanks again for trying to help so quickly.
now I just need to find a way to get kde to remember my wireless network password.
Thanks for letting us know this has been resolved for you. Closing but feel free to reopen if the problem returns
