Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 510671
evolution hangs sporadically
Last modified: 2009-07-10 10:05:19 EDT
Description of problem:
sometimes evolution hangs, it just stops responding
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[pontus@selleri ~]$ rpm -qa |grep evolution
usually after evolution have been running for quite a while (idling), but not necessarirly very long time
Steps to Reproduce:
hang, no response
interesting emails from friends, some spam, bugmails, even more spam
Thanks for a bug report. Reproducing such bug is usually quite hard. When it hangs for you again, could you attach gdb to the running process and get a backtrace of the actual state? It will get us some overview what it does.
You can do that for example by this:
a) find out evolution's process ID (PID), for example with:
$ ps -A | grep evolution
b) then run this command:
$ gdb --batch --ex "t a a bt" -pid=PID &>bt.log
c) attach here the resulting bt.log file
Maybe do the same for evolution-data-server process.
Thanks in advance.

i DID attach the backtrace this morning - but apparently it did not stick...
here you have also the e-d-s backtrace - i kept the stuck process for now - so i hope it doesn't matter that these backtraces are made at two entirerly different occasions

evolution-data-server bt log
Thanks for the update. evolution-data-server is fine, it's in idle.
The evolution is stuck when reading the gnome-keyring password, and it matches bug #498871, thus I'm marking it as a duplicate.
