abrt daemon crashes and gui unresponsive
Last modified: 2015-02-01 17:52:03 EST
Description of problem:
My abrt-gui has stopped working. The screen takes a long time to draw/redraw and is completely unresponsive.
My messages file fills up with the following message repeated frequently while the gui app is running.
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: warning: /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern was already set to run a crash analyser (|/usr/libexec/abrt-hook-ccpp /var/cache/abrt %p %s %u %c), abrt may interfere with it
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: Registered Analyzer plugin 'CCpp'
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: Registered Analyzer plugin 'Kerneloops'
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: Registered Action plugin 'KerneloopsScanner'
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: Registered Reporter plugin 'KerneloopsReporter'
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: Registered Analyzer plugin 'Python'
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: Checking for unsaved crashes (dirs to check:4)
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: Registered Database plugin 'SQLite3'
May 11 08:13:23 blink abrtd: invalid number ''
It also appears that my daemon has crashed, and continues to crash when restarted.
E.g. when my nautilus crashed, my log file showed;
May 11 07:42:18 blink kernel: nautilus: segfault at c ip 0811d200 sp bfb0a620 error 4 in nautilus[8045000+1da000]
May 11 07:42:18 blink abrt: abrt daemon is not running. If it crashed, /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern contains a stale value, consider resetting it to 'core'
Following ths instructions and setting the value to core makes no difference to the gui or daemon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Thank you for the report.
Workaround for this problem is to remove the contents of /var/cache/abrt (deletes all your saved crashes).
