Description Thomas Spear 2010-11-17 12:49:38 UTC
Description of problem:
Any time I try to start Konsole, X crashes. NOTE: I am using gnome, standard fedora install, but with konsole and it's dependencies installed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Install konsole in F13 and verify that it is working.
1. Upgrade from F13 to F14 with preupgrade.
2. Attempt to start konsole in F14 and X will segfault.
Actual results:
X Crashes

Expected results:
Konsole starts

Additional info:
My Xorg log https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=461048 -- it is attached to a different bug as I was unsure of the cause of the X crash until I tried to start konsole again after the initial crash.

A vast majority of the time, X crash -> kernel/driver bug

I see nvidia binary driver in play here too. :(

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2010-11-17 14:12:53 UTC
reassigning where crash occurs -> Xorg

Comment 3 Thomas Spear 2010-11-17 14:33:19 UTC
I will test with nouveau tonight then. Any chance that the nvidia driver is what is causing the slowness in the bug that the attachment I linked is actually attached to?

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2010-11-17 17:15:02 UTC
there's a good chance, but I've no idea what the other bug # is?

Comment 5 Thomas Spear 2010-11-18 00:47:37 UTC
bug 654280

Comment 6 Thomas Spear 2010-11-18 05:36:46 UTC
So after some testing, I have run into and discovered the cause of a problem I reported on Fedora 13.

Nouveau does not like the multi-card setup in my machine. It does not like it so much that it causes udev to hang during device detection. Removing all but 1 of the 3 cards in my machine allows the machine to boot with nouveau enabled, at which point I no longer get the crash and no longer get the slowness in 654280.

Now, I am currently running one monitor on this dual-head card, so before this gets closed as invalid, I think some tests are in order.

Firstly, I need to enable the second monitor on this one card and see if Konsole crashes. 

If not, then some redhat/nouveau guy needs to fix nouveau to work on a multi-card setup again, so I can properly test the konsole crash with all 3 cards installed.

Waiting on bug 654280 comment 9

Comment 8 Robert Peterson 2010-11-18 17:51:49 UTC
I have the exact same issue, also with the NVIDIA driver.
The driver works fine for me until I run cssh (clusterssh)
then X crashes with the same messages.  Easy to recreate.

I also cannot run the nouveau driver due to bug #540922.
I've got one dual-port GEForce.  The lspci says it's a:

nVidia Corporation G94 [GeForce 9600 GT] (rev a1)

I'm running with two monitors attached.

Is this http://awbsworld.de/archives/37 have any relevance to this bug?

I think this is related and fixed in xorg-x11-server build in koji (which is not submitted as an upgrade for f14 yet):

* Tue Nov 09 2010 Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com> 1.9.1-3
- xserver-1.9.1-pxtc-crash.patch: Fix crash with Xinerama enabled 

Try to fetch it from koji and see if this resolves the issue

Comment 11 Thomas Spear 2010-12-01 11:29:35 UTC
Still waiting for an opportunity to test this. Sorry for the lack of input

Comment 12 Thomas Spear 2010-12-01 11:33:25 UTC
I've gotten 2 displays on one card working with nouveau. Konsole does not crash.

Still waiting for an opportunity to test this further. Sorry for the lack of input.

Comment 13 Thomas Spear 2011-11-26 02:58:50 UTC
I am no longer able to test this as I have changed companies. This can be closed.

Comment 14 Thomas Spear 2012-06-14 22:08:14 UTC
Fedora 13 is EOL. This can be closed unless someone has the issue in F15 (F16 as of June 2[4,6]).
