Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7846
kdebase-1.1.2-14 freezes on access of K->GNOME menu item
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
Upon installing kdebase-1.1.2-14 on a hybrid Redhat 6.1 system (with
selected rawhide updates), X windows (or more specifically kdm) freezes
after clicking on the menu (lower left of screen): K->GNOME
Workaround: go back to kdebase-1.1.2-13
You need a saved copy - its gone from Rawhide.
The RH6.1 Gotchas page implies that its ok
for production machines to use the latest version
of certain rpms from Rawhide! That's only good advice
if those rpms (kde in this case) are never broken on Rawhide.
I had already regressed back to kdebase-1.1.2-13 upon discoverring the
problem. I'm glad that you've verified my actions as correct.
Fixed in 1.1.2-16. The problem was a bug in the attempt to handle the
TryExec= line from newer GNOME desktop entries.
