Description kazadi 1999-06-07 17:23:39 UTC
I am running RedHat 6.0 on an X86 platform configured as such: I686 Pentium II 400 Processor Asus P2B Motherboard 128 Megs memory Diamond Viper V550 Video card Creative labs AWE64 PNP sound card Two 4 GIG IBM SCSI HD's One 9 GIG Seagate SCSI HD On board 7890 SCSI controller. With this configuration, every time I try to change my keyboard type in the XF86Setup GUI it crashes the app ans causes an application core dump. Should you need me to send you a copy of the core, please let me know and I will be happy to. Thank you, Kamran Azadi

Confirmed in test lab, switching from 101-key to 104-key keyboard. Output of gdb is as follows: Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. 0x402ed55c in chunk_free (ar_ptr=0x305, p=0x81d7748) at malloc.c:2960 malloc.c:2960: No such file or directory.

*** Bug 4732 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** ->Run through an XF86Setup as follows: GNOME Terminal su XF86Setup Yes (reconfig) Keyboard Make Caps Lock an Additional Control Apply ->at this point XF86Setup gets a Segmentation Fault and dumps a core file. However, the requested change does take effect.

I'm also getting a core dump from FX86Setup at the end when or before it attempts to write a new XF86Config file. Xconfigurator works fine, however.

we do not support XF86Setup, as we ship Xconfigurator instead. XF86Setup will be removed from the next version of Red Hat Linux.
