Description Chris Ricker 2003-05-22 15:27:01 EDT
This is on an up2date'd RHL 9 box, with kdelibs-3.1-11

While I'm in KDE, kdeinit is dying (which apparently takes down the file manager
-- all my icons disappear from the desktop), generating a core dump

Nothing specific seems to trigger this, at least as far as I've determined.

Are there debuginfo RPMs for kdelibs I can download, so I can supply a backtrace
from these core dumps?
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2003-05-23 11:19:09 EDT
there is no debuginfo RPMs for kdelibs for downloading. You have to rebuild
kdelibs yourself to have debuginfo rpm.

Did you restart your machine after upgraded into RHL 9.

It's strange! 
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-05-23 11:21:27 EDT
This was a clean install, not an upgrade

I'll try building the debuginfo myself, but that takes forever ;-)
Comment 3 Chris Ricker 2003-05-23 13:13:00 EDT
I built the kdelibs debuginfo package and installed it. Here's the backtrace:

Hmm, perhaps is something broken in your kde config files.

Could you please try to add a new user first and start kde with a new user.
Is the problem still there with new user ?
Comment 5 Chris Ricker 2003-05-29 10:52:32 EDT
This is with a new user

The only perhaps unusual thing is that the user's home directory (and therefore
configs, etc.) are mounted over NFS
Comment 6 Ngo Than 2003-06-03 07:23:03 EDT
Hmm, i still cannot reproduce this bug, even with a new user, which is mounted
over NFS.

sorry, works for me. any more specific way to reproduce this ? reopen then.
