Description Sean E. Millichamp 2002-12-29 21:55:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I am testing out Phoebe as a standard user on a fresh install.  I ran "Floppy
Formatter" and it immediately crashed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "Floppy Formatter" from the Red Hat menu
2. Watch it crash
Actual results:
Application "gfloppy" has crashed due to a fatal error. (Segmentation fault)
Backtrace was generated from '/usr/bin/gfloppy'

(no debugging symbols found)...0x40729bc2 in waitpid ()
   from /lib/i686/
#0  0x40729bc2 in waitpid () from /lib/i686/
#1  0x4007a2e5 in libgnomeui_module_info_get () from /usr/lib/
#2  <signal handler called>
#3  0x42075608 in strcmp () from /lib/i686/
#4  0x0804bfec in main ()
#5  0x42015970 in __libc_start_main () from /lib/i686/

Expected results:
Anything other then a crash.

I installed gnome-utils-debuginfo and saw this text in the terminal when gfloppy

dlopen failed on '' - /lib/i686/ undefined
symbol: ps_get_thread_area
GDB will not be able to debug pthreads.

Comment 4 Jonathan Blandford 2003-01-24 16:12:21 UTC
The old spec file wasn't installing a schema.  It now is, but you prolly need to
reset the key by doing something like:

gconftool-2 -s /apps/gfloppy/default_fs -t string ext2

There's better error checking filed upstream at:
