Description Chris Meek 2011-08-11 19:18:51 UTC
Description of problem:
When abrt-action-install-debuginfo-to-abrt-cache starts to download debuginfo, the process cannot be cancelled. If it is a large debuginfo file, this would force you to finish the download, even if you decided that it is not worth downloading. Typing ctrl-c does not stop the download, nor any other signal.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a download: echo 67b1a5daf785521a097dd1f29fe9513f60f842f0 | /usr/bin/abrt-action-install-debuginfo-to-abrt-cache  -y --ids=-

2. Before the download finishes, try to cancel it, with ctrl-c or any other command.
Actual results:
It appears to cancel the main program, but the download process continues. It appears on the next line after going back to the command prompt.

Expected results:
There should be some way to cancel the download.

Comment 6 Chris Meek 2012-01-31 16:14:04 UTC
I tested the most recent version: abrt-2.0.7-2.fc16 and there still appears to be
some issues with aborting the download process. When calling abrt-action-install-debuginfo-to-abrt-cache directly: 

$ echo f09df0d796fef1ba7d06baa9b614286295c6807d | /usr/libexec/abrt-action-install-debuginfo-to-abrt-cache -y --ids=-

and then pressing ctrl-c in the middle of the download process, it sometimes successfully cancels the download, but sometimes it does not. I haven't noticed any pattern on why it sometimes works or not...it appears random.

I also tried it by passing SIGINT (or even SIGKILL) to it from within our program, but that didn't appear to work at all. Perhaps this is due to abrt-action-install-debuginfo-to-abrt-cache being a wrapper for abrt-action-install-debuginfo.
