Description mikepenn 1999-12-27 03:43:51 UTC
While running RH61, Kudzu is core dumping on my Tecra 8000 (128MB RAM).
This seems to have started after I docked the laptop in the docking bar.
Before this happened, kudzu ran without incident.

I have erased and re-installed the kudzu rpm... this has not corrected the

straces of the problem always die while reading from the hwconf file.

Hmmm... that's an odd place for it to die.

If you run a debugging version under gdb, where does
it crash at?

Also, you might want to try the latest kudzu from Raw Hide
to see if it behaves better.

Comment 2 mikepenn 2000-01-19 02:51:59 UTC
This bug was not fixed

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-19 03:38:59 UTC
Whoops, my bad; forgot about the other e-mail. (To get this
to work a bit better, it's probably best to respond to
bugzilla as opposed to me personally.)

To get a debugging version, you'd need to get the
source, build a version with special flags, and
run it under gdb. If you need a debugging version,
I can mail one to you.

I take it the kudzu from Raw Hide still segfaults
in your case?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-24 05:18:59 UTC
The latest one in Raw Hide is at

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-08 23:01:59 UTC
Oops, yeah, an empty hwconf file will cause it to keel over.
Fixed in kudzu-0.27.
