backtrace_rating: 4
cmdline:        /usr/bin/gnome-shell
comment:        Seems to happen a lot with regular usage of GNOME Shell in a current Rawhide VM: open Firefox, open abrt...it's pretty much unusable.

in case this is more glibc hilarity - this is with glibc-2.14.90-16.x86_64 .

Comment 8 Joshua Roys 2012-02-23 11:21:45 EST
Running F17 RC4 under KVM (rhel6) using spice.  gnome-shell seems to crash when desktop effects try to get applied?  The first crash (this one) happened when I tried to open 'profile preferences' in gnome terminal.  The second happened when I opened system settings.  This might be specific to spice (?) because I had browsed around system settings with no issues over the regular VNC... but then switched to spice because of mouse lag.

backtrace_rating: 4
Package: gnome-shell-3.3.5-2.fc17
OS Release: Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)

Yeah, I think it is particular to Spice.

Comment 11 Adam Williamson 2012-02-28 13:03:17 EST
re-assigning and proposing as Beta blocker: this makes F17's default desktop borderline unusable in a default F16/F17 VM configuration, you can't really _do_ anything substantial without it crashing. If I want to do anything in an F17 VM I have to force fallback mode. Criterion "The release must install and boot successfully as a virtual guest in a situation where the virtual host is running the previous stable Fedora release, using Fedora's current preferred virtualization technology" combined with Alpha criterion "It must be possible to run the default web browser and a terminal application from all release-blocking desktop environments. The web browser must be able to download files, load extensions, and log into FAS", I guess - it's pretty hard to get all the way through testing the second before Shell crashes.
Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2012-03-02 13:17:21 EST
Discussed at 2011-03-02 blocker review meeting. Accepted as a blocker per criterions cited in comment #11, meeting agreed this case is severe enough to merit blockeriness.

The reproducer is just to run Shell in a Spice/QXL VM for a few minutes, really. Try and do anything and it falls over soon enough.

Comment 13 Kamil Páral 2012-03-02 13:19:58 EST
I can reproduce gnome-shell crash when navigating to System Settings -> Display. 100% "success". Happens just with spice/qxl.
Comment 14 Jason Brooks 2012-03-02 14:15:53 EST
I'm running the F17 alpha on oVirt (so, KVM & Spice). I experienced this same issue initially, but found that Gnome Shell runs w/o crashing with the vesa driver. Not ideal, but a workaround.

Comment 16 Aioanei Rares 2012-03-12 14:00:49 EDT
I am running an up-to-date F17 with kvm on a Debian host and can't even get to gdm. I get the "Something's wrong! Contact your system administrator" screen, with nothing else to do. If I start from runlevel three and issue startx (.xinitrc's contents are simply 'exec gnome-session'), it seems to work though. I installed with the F17 alpha livecd.
Comment 17 Aioanei Rares 2012-03-13 07:42:58 EDT
Today's update to spice-gtk3 seems to have solved the issue.
Comment 18 Adam Jackson 2012-03-14 13:44:16 EDT
Finally managed to track this down, and it turns out to really be a bug in the qxl driver (in particular in the uxa prepare/finish_access hooks).  Very much not where I was expecting that bug to be.

Reassigning to qxl driver.

Comment 21 Adam Williamson 2012-03-16 17:23:45 EDT
This looks pretty good. I have a VM that's made it all the way through a liveinst run. It used to crash way, way faster than that.

Comment 22 Adam Williamson 2012-03-16 17:56:07 EDT
There's a note in the update:

"This release has a different bug that causes rendering corruption in some cases, so I'm holding off on it for now."

We do need a fix for this bug in time for RC compose Tuesday, though. So can that be addressed? Thanks.
Comment 23 Adam Williamson 2012-03-16 22:00:07 EDT
Adam - is there any chance this bug was also causing #747464 ? I've noticed that I haven't triggered that bug, yet, with builds that have this xorg-x11-drv-qxl...
