Marking as Fedora 14 KDE blocker.

Comment 5 Radek Novacek 2010-10-07 17:13:55 UTC
Can anyone who is seeing this bug try this koji build [1] and test if it fixes the issue?

Comment 6 Artem 2010-10-08 08:09:26 UTC
This build fixes the issue, however it is also fixed by new version of PackageKit-0.6.9-4 available in updates-testing repo at the moment

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2010-10-08 17:15:58 UTC
This was discussed at the 2010-10-08 blocker review meeting and accepted as a blocker. Please push the appropriate fixes ASAP, KDE team, thanks!

Artem, no-one's quite sure how a PackageKit update could fix this, did you mean some other package?

Comment 8 Artem 2010-10-08 18:06:54 UTC
@Adam, no, it's exactly PackageKit
I did following tests (updating and downgrading packages):
1) PackageKit*-0.6.7 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-1 - problem exists
2) PackageKit*-0.6.9 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-1 - problem does not exist
3) PackageKit*-0.6.7 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-2 - problem does not exist
4) PackageKit*-0.6.9 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-2 - problem does not exist

People on KDE bug are also wondering how this could help, however for me it works.
If some more info is necessary - inform me and I will try to provide it

Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2010-10-15 12:56:45 UTC
which essentially reverts the fix here (to avoid bigger problems/regressions), in my quick-n-dirty testing, saw polkit-kde crash on logout in 2 out of 3 tries.

Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2010-10-15 12:57:33 UTC
See also bug #643108 (which was the bigger problem mentioned in comment #12)

Comment 14 Adam Williamson 2010-10-15 16:33:51 UTC
Discussed at the 2010-10-15 blocker review meeting. This was 'fixed' but the fix turned out to be wrong and cause bigger issues (643108). KDE team are working on finding a correct fix, and are aware of the RC timeframe.

Comment 15 Radek Novacek 2010-10-15 21:44:22 UTC
I made some progress with this bug and built new version of polkit-qt. I hope this will fix both issues but I want someone to test it before creating an update (I don't want to screw it up again :) ). 

So please test this builds and write your results here:
rawhide: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2537428
f14: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2537448

I tried it on F14. Installing apps in kpackagekit works and no crashes 
after three logouts.
