#963 3 FEL apps segmentation fault
Closed: Fixed None Opened 10 years ago by chitlesh.

Hello there,

I have the following 3 packages that needs to be tagged for F10, so that they can feature on the FEL livecd.
Their current tagged n-v-r crashes with a segmentation fault on launch.

  • The koji build nvr (name-version-release)


  • A description of what you want to change

I want the above packages tagged for F10 so that they can be on the FEL livecd. Their previous n-v-r crashes with a segmentation fault.

  • Rationale for why the change is important enough to be allowed in after the final freeze.

The FEL Livedvd is a marketing media for Fedora. It is a shame to ship applications that crashes on launch. It is also a shame for me to recommend small companies and universities to move to Fedora with broken package.

  • Impact of not accepting the development at this point of the schedule.

Affecting (in a negative manner) the marketing material of the FEL deployment.

Sorry about this late call.
I recently moved to another city (third time this year) here in Belgium and today I got my own internet connection.

Hai there,

2 of the 3 above apps are still broken. - alliance and gwave

I got gwave fixed by adding another Requires. Gwave and guile-gnome-platform are very fragile. For the time being the Requires fix the problem. On the long term, fedora's maintainer of guile-gnome-platform and myself will have a serious discussion with gwave's upstream.

As for alliance, I'm still working on it.

Please tag the following for F10-final please:
* gwave-2-11.20070514snap.fc10

thanks, Chitlesh

+1 on gwave-2-11.20070514snap.fc10

+1 and gwave; leaving open for an alliance fix

gwave moved & tagged. Leaving open for alliance.

Hai there again,

We figured out what was the issue with alliance's crash. There was a missing Requires:xorg-x11-fonts-misc


Can anyone tag this please for F10-final.


Confirmed fixes crasher, +1 for alliance-5.0-23.20070718snap.fc10

(I'm still only seeing empty text boxes, instead of any readable text in menus/app, but that's a long-standing issue that I've seen going back to last akademy).

True, the empty text boxes is a long-standing issue, but it's only present on certain machines.

moving, tagging, signing, again :)
