Bug-buddy report of the crash

Comment 2 Dawid Lorenz 2008-06-11 19:50:53 UTC
Forgot to mention: after executing mail-notification, mailboxes are actually
checked, as I can see mail notifications. That is happening while (or just
before) bug-buddy kicks in.

Comment 3 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-06-16 12:43:56 UTC
What version was before the update?

Does "full uninstall then install again" help?

What type of mailboxes do you use?

> What version was before the update?

I don't know.

> Does "full uninstall then install again" help?

I'll try once I'm back home (I don't have F9 on my office laptop).
> What type of mailboxes do you use?

1xIMAP and 1xGmail. Always used to work fine.

Comment 5 Dawid Lorenz 2008-06-16 20:18:59 UTC
OK, I've managed to nail the problem down. It turned out it only crashes when
trying to check Gmail account. Other IMAP account works fine. Gmail - crash
straight away.

Comment 6 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-06-17 11:48:24 UTC
OK, send it upstream...

Comment 7 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-06-20 15:58:55 UTC
Could you pleease report this issue to the upstream bug tracker,

Comment 8 Dawid Lorenz 2008-06-20 16:18:36 UTC
I can't do it at the moment. I'm just about to leave away on holiday-break for
two weeks, and my time is currently limited. I might be able to do it over the
holiday time, but I can't promise.

Sorry about that :(

Comment 9 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-08-13 13:12:02 UTC
What if run in cmdline in "C" locale? Ie.:

LANG=C mail-notification

Comment 10 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-10-15 13:54:03 UTC
While the upstream has not fixed it, the work-around could be to access Gmail by POP (pop3 protocol)...

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 12 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 17:54:25 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
