[abrt] crash in shotwell-0.5.0-1.fc13: Process /usr/bin/shotwell was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
Last modified: 2011-06-27 11:52:00 EDT
abrt 1.0.9 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: shotwell file:///media/3039-3366
reason: Process /usr/bin/shotwell was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
Error when I import pictures from my Nexus One.
How to reproduce
1.Connnect a Nexus One.
Created attachment 408962 [details]
The problem is in gPhoto2. The Nexus One has a long filename in its filesystem that's being copied without bounds-checking into a fixed-size buffer. I've posted a ticket for the project here:
I've committed a patch to trunk which catches long filenames and skips over them before calling the gPhotos functions which perform unchecked strcpy's. I can't reproduce the crash exactly here, but I can see in code how this *could* cause a crash.
If at all possible, please try to reproduce this by running Shotwell from trunk. Instructions are at http://www.yorba.org/shotwell/install/#source
I haven't heard back from the reporter, so I've marked this as fixed in our Trac system: http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/1851
Sorry, I do not know how to compile.
Could you create an rpm, please?
Unfortunately, I don't know how to do that. Perhaps someone else can step in with a solution.
We plan on shipping 0.6. shortly, and I'm assuming that will be packaged for Fedora users soon thereafter. If you still have the problem then, please let us know. Thanks!

This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.
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 13'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 13 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 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 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.
