Comment 1 Nathaniel McCallum 2012-03-15 11:33:42 EDT
3.11.12-2 works fine
Comment 2 Jiri Popelka 2012-03-15 11:36:24 EDT
And with what version do you see the crashes ?
Comment 3 Nathaniel McCallum 2012-03-15 12:28:13 EDT
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2012-04-02 11:16:00 EDT
That's weird. That version is effectively just a rebuild with no code changes.

Can you run 'info locals' in gdb at the point where you get the backtrace?  It would also be useful to see the full gdb output -- for example, what signal was received?
Comment 5 Nicolas Dufresne 2012-06-20 17:19:20 EDT
Same crash here, Fedora 17. Debug info is missing for the affected package, no locals, sorry.

Quick patch that revert broken changes

I reverted some obscure changes to it's state as found in 3.11 and now it works.
Comment 7 Jiri Popelka 2012-07-02 06:26:23 EDT

> Debug info is missing for the affected package, no locals, sorry.

Can you install it with:
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install hplip-debuginfo
and try to get the backtrace again ?
Comment 8 Jiri Popelka 2012-07-02 06:53:39 EDT
I've searched simple-scan BZs and found bug #801145 where's a good backtrace.

bug #801145, comment #4 states that "Reinstalling hplip's plugin with hp-setup helped."
Comment 9 Nicolas Dufresne 2012-10-15 12:07:16 EDT
Any reason to ignore the proposed patch ? As been working fine for me for a long time now.
Comment 10 Jiri Popelka 2012-10-15 13:26:35 EDT
Although we really appreciate a patch along with a bug report, we need a patch that fixes the problem where it is so we can try to push it upstream (HP). In this case the patch is a work-around and most likely will be refused by upstream. And to create proper patch we need sufficient debuginfo first.

Have you already tried to update the hp-plugin ?
Comment 11 Nicolas Dufresne 2012-10-15 14:09:37 EDT
You need to understand this is a patch being revert, not a workaround. Telling upstream they have a patch to blame would most likely be a good step forward. But meanwhile, improving usability for your users would also be great.
Comment 12 Fedora End Of Life 2013-01-16 15:28:28 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '16'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 13 Fedora End Of Life 2013-02-13 18:52:24 EST
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
