Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 496865
When setting up Pidgin for the first time it hangs, and can lock up the computer
Last modified: 2009-04-21 11:09:39 EDT
Description of problem:
After a fresh install of Fedora 11 beta I went to setup pidgin. Just after launch pidgin brings up an Accounts window with Add and Close as available options. Some times by the time I try to click inside this dialogue box pidgin is already frozen. Other times I can click Add, but pidgin freezes just after the next window opens allowing me to setup my newly added account. If I select Close from the initial Accounts dialogue box pidgin minimizes to the system tray and then when I right click on the icon the system can lock up, not accepting any more input until I ssh in and kill the pidgin process.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time, although where along the way it freezes varies.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install of F11 beta
2. Click on Pidgin
Pidgin hangs, sometimes taking all user input with it.
Able to setup pidgin after a fresh install with my various accounts.
Fresh F11 install with no additional software customization on an x86_64 system.
