Description Adam Williamson 2010-11-10 17:58:22 EST
After today's Rawhide update, which got me:

    Updated evolution-2.91.1-3.fc15.x86_64
    Updated evolution-data-server-2.91.1-2.fc15.x86_64
    Updated evolution-data-server-debuginfo-2.91.1-2.fc15.x86_64
    Updated evolution-data-server-devel-2.91.1-2.fc15.x86_64
    Updated evolution-data-server-doc-2.91.1-2.fc15.noarch
    Updated evolution-debuginfo-2.91.1-3.fc15.x86_64
    Updated evolution-perl-2.91.1-3.fc15.x86_64

evo's mail list pane - the top-right pane in a default three-pane config - is broken. Usually it just shows blank grey. Sometimes if I click through a lot of folders it'll show up with the list from one of those folders, but *not* the last one I clicked on (can't reproduce this much though). Will attach a screenshot.

Before this update it worked fine. High severity as this makes Evo pretty much useless.

voila - note top-right pane
Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2010-11-10 20:00:18 EST
with further experimentation, it seems this is a *rendering* issue only: the pane works as it should, if I click in different bits of it, different emails appear in the view pane. But it's not displayed correctly at all.

aha, I think I have it.

straceing the udevadm command, I see:

lstat("/dev/.udev/db/sound:card1", 0x7fff1e1c97e0) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
lstat("/dev/.udev/db/sound:card1", 0x7fff1e1c97f0) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
lstat("/dev/.udev/db/sound:card1", 0x7fff1e1c97f0) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
lstat("/dev/.udev/db/sound:card1", 0x7fff1e1c93b0) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
lstat("/dev/.udev/db/sound:card1", 0x7fff1e1c93a0) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)


[adamw@adam ~]$ ls -l /dev/.udev/
ls: cannot open directory /dev/.udev/: Permission denied

[root@adam adamw]# ls -dl /dev/.udev/
drwxrwx---. 7 root root 160 Nov 10 16:55 /dev/.udev/

so, what sets the permissions on /dev/.udev ?

This is a GTK+ issue.  Benjamin figured it out for me on Monday.

You need this commit:
Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2010-11-10 21:13:54 EST
confirmed, that fixes it. I can push the fix for gtk2 if you want, or leave it to mclasen...whichever.

We'll get that fix with 2.23.2 - feel free to build that if you don't want to wait for me to get around to pushing rawhide updates.
Comment 9 Milan Crha 2010-11-11 03:08:41 EST
Will there be something similar for Fedora 14 too, please? Evolution claims it can run with gtk2 from there, but it suffers of the same issue in the message list.
Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 14:48:53 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
