Description Salina Chu 2001-11-20 15:56:46 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
Select KDE control center
On left side of window, select System
Select Boot Manager ( LILO )
when window for lilo comes up, select tab that says Operating Systems
On the Operating Systems menu, select probe button
We get kde crash that shows we are getting sigsegv

The reason is in

in saveChanges, l is 0
void Images::saveChanges() // SLOT
        if(!current.isEmpty()) {
                liloimage *l=lilo->images[current.latin1()];
                l->set("image", image->text().latin1(), true, true);
                l->set("label", label->text().latin1(), true, true, "\t");
                l->set("root", root->text().latin1(), true, true, "\t");
                l->set("initrd", initrd->text().latin1(), true, 
true, "\t");
                l->set("append", append->text().latin1(), true, 
true, "\t");

If we add testing l is non-zero before all the l->set
this will fix the core dump problem

Thanks, I've fixed it in the KDE CVS tree, it'll be in the next release.
