|Summary:||Segmentation fault after Settings --> choose theme|
|Product:||[Extras] Canola||Reporter:||Uwe Kaminski <jukey>|
|Component:||Settings||Assignee:||Eduardo Lima (Etrunko) <eblima>|
|Status:||VERIFIED FIXED||QA Contact:||general-bugs|
|Priority:||Low||CC:||andrei.mirestean, archebyte, jukey|
SOFTWARE VERSION: canola2 RC4 on latest OS version for the N900. STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: 0. Install all of the themes available in the extras-devel repository. 1. Start canola 2. Choose the Settings icon in the lower right corner --> settings menu is comming up 3. Choose "Choose theme" from the menu. EXPECTED OUTCOME: I should be able to select the themes which are installed. ACTUAL OUTCOME: Canola closes itself immediately. Running it with command "canola -vvv" shows that there is a segmentation fault. REPRODUCIBILITY: always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: Only canola2 and the themes are installed
There are a few others points where it crashes. All of them when accessing either Settings or Options. Some that I found: Settings/Internet Media/Download Folder My Photos/Full Screen View/Options/Slideshow Time Can't tell exactly what it is right now, but it looks like something related to the ancient and unmaintained Etk library which we use on Settings and Options. On the other hand, it only crashes on Fremantle, while on Diablo and Chinook don't. Need to investigate a bit further, I may also be something related to optimization flags we use during compilation of the EFL modules written in C.
Confirmed on canola2 2.0.0-maemo1 from extras-testing -Install canola2 (no additional themes installed) -Start application. -Applicatioin exits after selecting Choose Theme. $ canola 1260566940.1045 ERROR connection:218:maybe_handle_message() Exception in handler for D-Bus signal: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/dbus/connection.py", line 214, in maybe_handle_message self._handler(*args, **kwargs) TypeError: _update_battery_level() takes exactly 2 arguments (3 given) Segmentation fault

The bug was actually in the python-terra package. The commit: http://code.openbossa.org/projects/python-terra/repos/andrei1089-clone/commits/9eb1f46ddd762dc667b32433b3cb4552ffb5fb06 will fix it.

Not reproductible neither on PC nor N8x0. Still can't believe the solution for this bug was so simple. Thank you very much. :)
Patch integrated to mainline. Closing as fixed.

Thank you too. I can verify that canola does not longer crash if I try to reproduce this bug. On the other hand now nothing happens if I select a different theme but I will fill a seperate bug for this issue.
