Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 501234
Last modified: 2010-06-28 08:35:06 EDT
Description of problem:
gdu-notification-daemon crashes during log-in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, on one machine. Another one doesn't expose this issue.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot machine
A bug buddy "save bug report dialog" pops up, telling
"The application gdu-notification-daemon has crashed"
* For me, the issue popped up the first time on 2009-05-17, when rebooting after a yum update. Therefore, I am inclined to think an update shortly before this date causes or triggers this bug.
* System: current rawhide (F11-i586).
Any chance you could obtain a stacktrace for us ?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I am getting this error with the fedora11 live CD. I am unable to use the live CD to install, live CD desktop performs very poorly.
System is a Dell Dimension 4100 desktop, 256 meg ram, intel graphics adapter.
How does the crash in gdu-notification-daemon affect your ability to install from the live cd ?
The installation run completely fine.
This error happens after the first login after the Welcome process.

I hit this bug today on F11 in a KVM virtual machine. Here's the bug buddy bug report attachment. HTH.

Similar crash on a system without a sound card
Bug report of a crash on another system.
As far as I can recall, gdu-notification-daemon has always crashed on login for Fedora 11 on this hardware. One item to note, this system lacks a sound card.
I have seen the bugbuddy crash when booting the i686 LiveCD but not with the x86_64 LiveCD on HP DL360 G6 servers with yum install. This server does not have a sound card.
I have found a workaround for the slow performance when booting to the LiveCD on these servers. Add the following kernel arguments by hitting tab in the grub menu:
vga=791 nopat xdriver=vesa nomodeset
I got this same bug when booting with the LiveCD. I will attach the bugreport.

gdu-notification-daemon bug report
I created a VM and installed FC11 yesterday without incident. I was able to update all components with YUM with expected results. I restarted last night to apply the new kernel and logged in without incident.
Today, I found the VM responding slow, so I restarted. When I logged in, I got similar results as noted in the other posts. This attachment is for reference, if it helps.

Yet another bug-buddy report
Same behaviour, crashes during login.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. 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 '11'.
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 11'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 11 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:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
