[abrt] gnome-shell-3.8.2-2.fc19: Process /usr/bin/gnome-shell was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
Last modified: 2016-07-07 05:44:55 EDT
Description of problem:
I was updating my system using Yum Extender. Yum Extender crashed 6 times in succession, followed by gnome-shell, which went with it. After a few minutes, the shell came back up and I had to manually run abrt just to report this. The reporting process had several failures as well just to get to this point. This is actually the second time Yum Extender crashed this way while attempting to update to the latest updates in updates-testing, with multiple repository failures.

I had just done a fairly large update. Before rebooting, I wanted to run xterm, so I pressed the "Windows" key, typed x (which showed) and t (which did not).
Perhaps the running gnome shell didn't get along with the updates.

I just hit a crash in F21 gnome-shell which abrt claims is a dupe of this. The FAF page:
has 1170 reports from F19, 211 from F20, 42 from F18, 12 from rawhide, and 1 from F17, covering gnome-shell 3.4.1-6.fc17 all the way up to gnome-shell-3.11.2-3.fc21 . So...either there's a longstanding crasher in GNOME which lots of people are hitting, or abrt is doing something wacky.
abrt folks, wdyt?

Hi Adam, I'm no longer connected with ABRT team, the new leader is rvokal so he should decide what to do with this bugzilla and he is the person who will answer all your future questions about ABRT.
Got this crash today on rawhide
Just happened to me on F20.
$ rpm -qa gnome-shell
I've the same gnome-shell version as above and it crashed 2 times (yesterday and today). Seems to me there is something wrong with it...
I've also experienced crashes often (for a while now, on different versions of Gnome 3). Could be extensions though.
My Gnome Shell crashes *OFTEN*. I have two systems running Fedora 20, one was a fresh install. I could be any application when it crashes, but most often I think is when I am in Evolution. I would be working, and then although the mouse can move, it won't select anything. Pressing keys don't respond, although CTRL-ALT-F3 will take me to another TTY which I can log into - slowly - because the disk is very very busy. If I run iotop, I see that gnome-shell is hogging 99% disk IO, and eventually it gives way to ABRT. Then I know I can work again. I can CTRL-ALT-F1 to get back to the shell session, and have to wait for the screen to bring back all the gnome-shell items. It is VERY frustrating.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
