Description Adam Williamson 2009-09-02 22:42:39 UTC
Mostly all in the summary :). If I disconnect the battery from my Vaio P (while it's plugged into the mains, obviously), g-p-m crashes a couple of seconds later. I'll attach bug-buddy's saved trace, and the console output from reproducing the issue with g-p-m running in a console.

console output from g-p-m when the crash happens

I disconnect the battery somewhere between 15:25:46 and 15:26:08. As the logs suggest, g-p-m doesn't crash the instant the battery is removed; it gets as far as removing the icon from the panel (as no battery is present any more), then crashes a bit later.

I have the same problem with my Dell Latitude D630 which has 2 batteries. It crashes when I remove one of the batteries. It also looks the same issue as RHBZ 513014

It no longer crashes on battery removal for me. Although it has other issues which I'll report separately.

I see this problem on the HP 6910p.

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2009-11-11 03:48:48 UTC
still happens on my P with latest F11 packages.

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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: 

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 14:27:19 UTC
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 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.
