Description Rob 2010-08-12 19:48:11 UTC
Doing either:
"abrt-gui" from terminal
Wait for a package to crash and attempting to view the problem via the icon in the top right corner

Leads to this message:

Error while loading the dumplist.
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

I reinstalled abrt, and now starting abrt i get this:

Error while loading the dumplist.
abrt daemon is not running, and DBus can't start it

I also get Selinux denial events right after trying to start abrt-gui, at the same time, which are attachments

Running the /sbin/restorecon '/var/run/abrt.pid' as suggested by SELinux, runs successfully but now when starting abrt-gui i get the original error message:

Error while loading the dumplist.
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

Comment 1 Michal Toman 2010-08-16 12:47:03 UTC
Could you be more specific when describing how to reproduce? What version of ABRT are you using? What is the package whose crash leads to the error?

Comment 2 Rob 2010-08-16 17:32:44 UTC
abrt version: abrt.x86_64   1.1.1-2.fc13

Well i get the dbus error when ever i try to start abrt so either running "abrt-gui" from terminal or going applications->system tools-> Automatic bug reporting tool

Also occurs when ever any other program crashes (appears to be any package, though very few of my packages ever crash so i cant tell if its one in particular) and i click the flashing icon in the top corner.

Comment 3 Michal Toman 2010-08-17 08:44:04 UTC
I'm still not able to reproduce. It seems to be some wrong configuration in security policy. I guess you don't get SELinux denial with the org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply error, right? Can you attach your
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/dbus-abrt.conf file?

Comment 4 Jiri Moskovcak 2010-08-17 09:47:37 UTC
And can you please try to update to the latest abrt version?

$ yum update abrt --enablerepo=updates-testing

should be abrt-1.1.13-2.

Thank you,

Comment 5 Rob 2010-08-17 11:12:32 UTC
The selinx denial was only after i tried reinstalling abrt

Heres the dbus added as attachment

Updating seems to of fixed the problem no more dbus errors when trying to start abrt, though havn't tested it for when a package does crash. Is there anyway to force a package to crash such that abrt catches it?

Created attachment 439090 [details]

Comment 7 Michal Toman 2010-08-17 11:28:05 UTC
You can emulate crash by sending SIGABRT to process:

$ xterm &
[1] 9323
$ kill -6 9323

Comment 8 Rob 2010-08-17 16:03:09 UTC
Everything seems to be working fine now, Thanks!
