Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 608142
crash logging in to Flickr
Last modified: 2011-06-27 14:56:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Shotwell crashes when trying to publish a photo to Flickr.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start shotwell from commandline.
2. Select a photo.
4. Publish photos to: Flickr
5. Click Login button.
New empty window briefly appears, then all Shotwell windows disappear.
Backtrace appears in console window. ABRT is not activated.
Log in to Flickr via Firefox.
I'm guessing Shotwell is trying to embed a web browser widget to access Flickr without an external browser. The backtrace suggests this may be an openjdk plugin problem with Flickr's authentication system, maybe unique to 64-bit systems?
Since it's an embedded webkit and not a real browser, I don't know how to disable or replace openjdk as a workaround.

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
