Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 688603
oocalc fails to start while the quickstarter is running
Last modified: 2011-03-18 09:56:21 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running XFCE, there some Gnome applications work funny.
I tried to open a CSV file via "oocalc xxx.csv", the "import file" window opened, I could select the options I wanted, but then nothing whatsoever.
Later I tried "oocalc something.xls", nothing. Plain "oocalc" or "Open file"/"New spreadsheet" from the quickstarter gave nothing.
I looked around, and "pgrep soffice" found two processes, one soffice and a soffice.bin. Believing they were somehow stuck, I killed the first one (it seems to have been the quickstarter), and tried again to open the .xls, which succeded.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. oocalc somefile.xls
Program returns immediately
Open the spreadsheet
I've got LOo crashes, but to report them via abrt I've to download some 800 MiB (!) of debug info, which installs to 3 GiB or so (!!). Will see if it gets the right versions this round..
I installed the debuginfo packages as told, but the backtrace turns out unusable all the same :-(
Running abrt-gui, it is now getting an extra set of debuginfos (?)...
Two rounds of "debuginfo-install libreoffice-core" gave no usable backtrace, and no missing debuginfos.
I stand corrected: Something really was wedged, starting oocalc (and others) restarted the Quickstarter, and now it works as intended.
I have no control over debuginfo packages or abrt unfortunately. So, is there now a known reproducible scenario here that I can do something about ?
I just tried again, now it works fine. Just that if I do "oocalc somefile.ods" the program exits immediately (but a window shows up soon).
Seems I've wasted your time here... :-(
I'm sure there is a bug in here somewhere, but its a matter of fighting battles again reproducible enemies :-)
