stacktrace of gnome-shell crash.

Description of problem:

I run Fedora 26 on a Lenovo Thinkpad W541. I ran a "dnf update" last Friday (2017-11-17) and after the update I could not login with any Gnome choice: Gnome, Gnome Classic, or Gnome on X11 - after a couple of burps on the display, it would return to the login prompt. I installed the cinnamon desktop and was able to log in with that.

It turns out that gnome-shell crashes in FcConfigEvaluate - see attached stacktrace.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fontconfig.x86_64                                  2.12.6-4.fc26                                  @updates

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf update
2. reboot
3. login

Actual results:
Churn a bit and then return to the login screen.

Expected results:
Successful login.

try with debuginfo please. that stacktrace isn't quite useful.

Comment 2 Nick Dokos 2018-02-09 21:00:26 UTC
I updated to F27 and can no longer reproduce this. Might as well close it.

Comment 3 Pooja Yadav 2018-02-20 12:05:19 UTC
Not reproducible on F27, therefore closing this.
