abrt 1.1.1 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: bacula-tray-monitor -c /etc/bacula/tray-monitor.conf
reason: Process /usr/sbin/bacula-tray-monitor was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
Duplicate of bug #597897
How to reproduce
1. Configure bacula (in particular, set passwords in /etc/bacula/tray-monitor.conf to match those in bacula-dir.conf, bacula-fd.conf, and bacula-sd.conf.)
2. Start the director, file daemon, and storage daemon.
3. Add your user to the bacula group (or try running the monitor as root; it's the same either way.)
4. /usr/sbin/bacula-tray-monitor -c /etc/bacula/tray-monitor.conf

I noticed that for every time I attempted to start the tray monitor, the following message was sent to /var/log/bacula.log:
bacula-dir: ERROR in authenticate.c:304 UA Hello from client:127.0.0.1:36131 is invalid. Len=0

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.
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 12'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 12 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:
I tried this on a Fedora 14 Live CD, after having freshly installed bacula with the SQLite database option. On this system, abrt does not appear to catch the crash, but the tray monitor still crashes -- an icon for it briefly appears on the tray, then disappears after half a second. I still see the exact same message in /var/log/bacula.log:
03-Nov 15:47 bacula-dir: ERROR in authenticate.c:304 UA Hello from client:127.0.0.1:36131 is invalid. Len=0
03-Nov 15:48 bacula-dir: ERROR in authenticate.c:304 UA Hello from client:127.0.0.1:36131 is invalid. Len=0
This system has the following packages installed:
This problem is caused by incorrect handling of tray monitor configuration file. Tray monitor crashes when you don't have configured director's address.
To fix this problem you should add Address = localhost to Director section in your tray-monitor.conf
It is probably related with upstream bug http://bugs.bacula.org/view.php?id=1625.
That did the trick! So besides crashing on a bad configuration file, the default configuration file also needs to be fixed by adding the missing Address record.
bacula-5.0.3-1.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
bacula-5.0.3-1.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
These updates only adds address to default config file. Better fix will be included in Rawhide after discussion with upstream.
bacula-5.0.3-2.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
bacula-5.0.3-2.fc14 has been pushed to the Fedora 14 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
