This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
I've tried to reproduce this on 2 different machines and installs with RHEL-6 Beta2 and can't reproduce it.
Could you try and attach a the debuginfo from KDE here or via abrt?
Thanks & regards, Phil
I'm sorry. I installed the "debuginfo" rpms and when I went to try to reproduce the problem its gone away. Sorry about that. I don't understand how the "debuginfo" rpms would change that. I was able to configure kppp just fine now. When it was crashing before it didn't set off Automated Bug Reporting Tool for some reason. It just froze the app to where any buttons no longer worked and the app turned all grey when you went to another virtual desktop and came back to the one with the defunct kpp windows. I ran /usr/bin/debuginfo-install kdenetwork and it installed about 25 rpms. I'm sending this from my cricKet wireless account and on the net via kppp and my modem. Thanks for looking into the problem Phil.
i have tried to reproduce this issue on my testing machinen with RHEL6-Beta2, it did not crash here. I now close this bug "WONTFIX" as we don't have a reproduce. Please feel free to reopen it if you got a working reproduce.
Thanks for your reports.
