kded deadlock on openconnect VPN connection
Last modified: 2013-08-01 14:03:49 EDT
When behind a captive portal or something which accepts HTTPS connections but then does nothing more, KDE users have observed kded deadlocking. It happens because it tries to cancel the VPN connection, but the HTTPS fetch never completes so it waits for ever for the I/O thread to complete.
This has been fixed by implementing proper cancellation support in libopenconnect, and by the patch at https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/104979/
Please merge this to master,F16,F17.
Note that you should have openconnect >= 3.19 in BuildRequires.
That should be 'BuildRequires: pkgconfig(openconnect) >= 3.19', of course.
Thanks! I'll take a look.

Looks like the prerequisites are fulfilled:

I assume you aren't interested in updating F15? It has one more month until end of life.
I've just pushed this to master (along with some other changes needed for libopenconnect.so.2, but it'll still work fine with libopenconnect.so.1 as used in Fedora 17 and below).
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.
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 17'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 17 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 change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
