Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 486781
gnome-gmail-notifier doesn't boot on 64-bit
Last modified: 2009-03-22 23:04:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'gnome-gmail-notifier' in terminal
gnome-gmail-notifier: pthread_mutex_lock.c:87: __pthread_mutex_lock: Assertion `mutex->__data.__owner == 0' failed.
Confirming that bug doesn't occur with x86.
bug posted upstream, but upstream is kinda non-responsive :(
Unfortunately the notifier seems to be running fine on my 64-bit Ubuntu install, so I guess there must be something specific to Fedora going wrong.
Could I ask you to install gdb and run the following: `gdb gnome-gmail-notifier` and once it has loaded, do the command `run`. If you could let us know the output of gdb, it should help to discover the cause of the problem.

Sam, make sure you run "debuginfo-install gnome-gmail-notifier" first.
(Also, Sam, gdb may also ask you to install some other debuginfo packages for it to work properly, too.)

Okay well, I thoroughly hate to do this to you guys. But after booting up my compy again and reinstalling all the packages needed, it works like a charm. It connects and checks mail manually and automatically and everything else as well. I have no idea what the problem was, but seeing as it works now, the output of gdb shouldn't matter. Ian, you should update this bug report to read as null seeing as I'm the only one who has reported having the problem, and no one has been able to reproduce it.
