gnumeric hangs on a search (F7)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Description of problem: Performing a search in gnumeric causes it to hang.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnumeric-1.0.12-1
How reproducible: press F7 in gnumeric.
Jody says it works for him - does it matter what document you have open?
Other ideas on how to reproduce?
hrm, I'm assuming it works for you as well? All I can think of, is that this is
an upgrade from Phoenix, and I am running KDE as my window manager. I can try
running in GNOME and see if that helps at all, but it worked fine in Phoenix
under KDE. It may also be a side-effect of the font problem? You don't have to
load up any document, just run gnumeric and press F7. I will report back if it
successfully works under GNOME.
locks up under GNOME as well.
I ran an strace on it and it looks like it hanging on a futex:
futex(0x42125028, FUTEX_WAKE, 2147483647, NULL) = 0
futex(0x42127d84, FUTEX_WAIT, 1, NULL
Oh, we had a problem like this before, that was fixed by upgrading glibc/kernel.
I remember now. Though it was "hangs on startup" before.
Are you using phoebe 1? Can you try phoebe 2?
I'm using Red Hat Linux release 8.0.93 (Phoebe), which I think is the 2nd
edition because the 1st version didn't even install for me.
glibc 2.3.1-40 fixes this problem for me.
HI, thanks for the info. Is this rpm available for download somewhere? I would
like to compile my own version of gnumeric 1.1.16 (which I would also like to
see in Phoebe, the README says it is stable).
nevermind, found the rpms in rawhide. Still want to cast a vote for seeing
devel version of gnumeric in Phoebe though :)
I installed the latest glibc from rawhide and it did not fix this bug for me.
What version did you install? "rpm -q glibc"
If it isn't -40 then you need to install a newer one to test.
I installed the following RPMs from rawhide:
with these RPMs installed, I still get the lock-up when I press F7 in gnumeric.
Oh, and I also installed
and I used the i686 build of glibc.
fixed with phoebe beta3. thanks. please mark bug as closed.
