Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497643
xsane 100% cpu loop, no gui
Last modified: 2009-05-05 05:02:21 EDT
Description of problem:
I run xsane, the initial dialog to select which image device comes up, and
has my HP photosmart all-in-one already selected as the default. I click OK,
the initial dialog goes away, xsane goes into a 100% cpu loop, and the preview
app never appears. The scanner device is:
Hewlett-Packard Photosmart_C5500_series all-in-one
Same hardware works fine with fedora 10 xsane.
Also the command line scanimage tool seems to work just fine on this device
even in rawhide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 341317 [details]
debug session from attach to hung xsane
I downloaded some debuginfo files, attached to xsane, and found it searching
for the end of a linked list in which list->next apparently points to list,
so finding the end of that will take a while :-). The backtrace looks like
it is fiddling with gtk menus when it gets into this loop.
I am having the same problem:
FC11 Beta x86_64 with Rawhide updates
xsane x86_64 0.996-6.fc11
Intel Core i7
Scanner: Brother MFC-240C all-in-one
Symptom: Initial "Scanning for devices..." dialog appears, then disappears. Nothing follows. Xsane is then running in the background at high CPU with no windows visible.
The command line tool "scanimage" makes the scanner begin scanning apparently normally. (I interrupted it at that point.)
I downgraded to the xsane RPM xsane-0.996-3.fc10.x86_64.rpm from Fedora 10 and the problem went away. The scanning windows appear normally and I can scan an image.
Please try this build. It made xsane work for me.
If it works for you, then this is the same bug as Bug #493659.
I can confirm the exact same behaviour as the original report, but with an HP PSC 1310. The updated packages (xsane-0.996-7) indeed solve that issue for me.
Me too. I just installed the x86_64 rpms from the above link and it works
fine. I'm looking at a preview image now.
