Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497950
psi roster doesn't update unless window is resized
Last modified: 2009-06-15 22:03:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Yesterday i have updated my fedora 9 system,After that i am unable to login to psi,No error show up,Just form many tries i just was able to log inn once or brief of 5 second,As before it was realy working i mean using previous version.and the star icon show connection activity,But with new version it dont blink in panel.
I'm unable to reproduce this on my fully-updated F-9 test-system. psi starts up and connects normally.
I can send you some info,like screen shots,that it was not connecting,As before it was working fine i mean in previous version.On more thing we are using gpg key also for encryption over jabber.
One more thing i notice this new version of psi is resource hungry see
20 0 124m 26m 17m R 99.1 1.4 0:41.27 psi
Ok i think i got issue,If i use gpg key then it didn't connect and if i say psi to use none then it work fine.
Account setup ---> details ----> open PGP.use none
This is most likely related to the installed qca version. There seem to be issues with qca < 2.0.2 and qt 4.5.
Unfortunately qca 2.0.2 isn't released yet.
I'll try to get you a test-rpm of a qca-svn snapshot later this week so you can test if that fixes the issue.
One issue more,I join room,at first i cant see any participant then i resize windows,afterwards i can see all participants,Psi at time take 100% CPU usage then need to restart it .
qca2-2.0.2-1.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
qca2-2.0.2-1.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
qca2-2.0.2-1.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I have just install new fresh f10 system to get rid of the psi problem i was facing in f9.I am very disappointed that this problem is still exists in f10 also.I am not much concern about encryption i am more concern my psi take all CPU cycle and hang system and when i click person A to start chat with him psi open Person B chat window.Then i have to resize windows after i click person A then it open Its window for chat.Details are below.same way i have to resize room when ever a person come or left or change his/her status.To see what new status.
Ali, could you please confirm that the gpg-key issue is fixed with the qca update?
In reply to your comment #11:
First of all: Please don't add additional issues to an existing bug. One bugzilla entry == one issue. This is vital.
I have also seen that issue before but cannot reproduce it. There is an upstream bug about it at http://flyspray.psi-im.org/task/953 . You could try updating your qt version to 4.5.1 to see if that fixes it (4.5.1 is available in updates-testing - use "yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install qt" got get it).
i am testing i let you know.
Still i am not able to login to psi when gpg-key.In 10 tries i login once.That was when there are few like one or 2 people online in jabber.this the only time i can loginn.
qca2-2.0.2-1.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Why was that update only pushed to Fedora 10 and 11? F9 is still open for bugfixes.

> Why was that update only pushed to Fedora 10 and 11? F9 is still open for
Mainly because it doesn't seem to fix the bug.
I'll happily push it for F9 if you find that it fixes anything for you.
i got following reply from the following link below,that you mention in you comment #12
As far as I know these are due to some incompatibility with Qt 4.5 and QCA. You need at least qt 4.5.1, qca 2.0.2, and qca-gnupg-2.0.0-beta3. At this time, it is inconclusive if there's any incompatibility with Psi 0.12 itself
But they have mention qca-gnupg-2.0.0-beta3,But in fedora 10 repo only qca-gnupg-2.0.0-0.2.beta1.fc10.i386 is available .

Interesting. I'll make sure to get you a testable beta3 rpm over the weekend.
In my local test updating to -beta3 fixes the issue for me but that could also be just a coincidence as I'm not seeing the problem all of the time.

Could you please try to install the updated qca-gnupg from:
and see if that fixes the resizing issue?
The above links point to the f10-builds. If you search koji for qca-gnupg you'll also find F11-builds.
issue seems resolved,But above rpm should be dependency of psi by default.
qca-gnupg-2.0.0-0.3.beta3.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
qca-gnupg-2.0.0-0.3.beta3.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Just wanted to add a remark that qca-gnupg-2.0.0-0.3.beta3 fixed the problem on my end, and psi is finally usable again without having to pin the qt package at an older version.
*** Bug 502354 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Maybe a solution ... I have backed up settings for psi and started with defaults. I added my accound and problem disappeared.
As far as I understand it, the issue is/was:
There was a bug in the qca-gnupg code wrt. to handling/recognizing updates to the gnupg keystore. If you had a gnupg-keystore set up under your user, psi would block on watching for updates. It doesn't matter if you had psi set up to use gnupg encryption or not - the code would always be executed and the roster would always hang.
The combination of qca-gnupg beta3 and qca2-2.0.2 fixes this for me and for everyone commenting here.
Both updates are queued for F9, F10 and F11 and will go out with the next stable push (which will hopefully happen soon).
qca2-2.0.2-1.fc9, qca-gnupg-2.0.0-0.3.beta3.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
