Gajim seg faults on Gentoo / Gnome 2.12
While trying to load, gajim crashes with Segmentation fault. I have an up to date system. The last messages after issuing the -v to python are:
import gnome # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome/__init__.pyo dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome/_gnome.so", 2); import gnome._gnome # dynamically loaded from /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome/_gnome.so dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome/ui.so", 2); dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnomevfs.so", 2); dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ORBit.so", 2); # /usr/lib/python2.4/keyword.pyo matches /usr/lib/python2.4/keyword.py import keyword # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.4/keyword.pyo import ORBit # dynamically loaded from /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ORBit.so import gnomevfs # dynamically loaded from /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnomevfs.so # /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/bonobo.pyo has bad mtime /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/bonobo.py: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation import bonobo # from /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/bonobo.py # can't create /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/bonobo.pyo dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/oafmodule.so", 2); Segmentation fault
Gajim on Gentoo gets executed by: exec python -OOt gajim.py $@
I have just added verbose switch: exec python -OOtv gajim.py $@
Yes, gajim was working form me before. I don't know the exact moment where it ceased to run, though.
Versions (python is at 2.4 version as you can read in above verbose output):
Python 2.4.2 gcc version 3.3.5-20050130 (Gentoo 188.8.131.5250130-r1, ssp-184.108.40.20650130-1, pie-220.127.116.11) pygtk-2.8.2 gtk+-2.8.8 (upgrading to 2.8.11 at the moment)
I'll try to run gdb in a moment.
And the gdb output:
(gdb) run gajim.py Starting program: /usr/bin/python gajim.py (no debugging symbols found)...[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled] [New Thread -1211947328 (LWP 13637)] [New Thread -1227383888 (LWP 13638)] [New Thread -1235776592 (LWP 13639)] Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Q16. I'm running gentoo x86_64 and gajim segfaults, how to fix it?
A. In few words - upgrade your gcc to 4.0.x and reemerge python, gtk+ and pygtk. (http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109298)
I have unmerged bonobo-python, re-emerged libbonobo, libbonoboui, pygtk and gnome-python, and now gajim cannot find bonobo.ui:
ImportError: could not import bonobo.ui Traceback (most recent call last): File "gajim.py", line 1504, in ? cli.set_restart_command(argv) AttributeError: '__main__.GnomeClient' object has no attribute 'set_restart_command'
I guess I will have to go to gentoo forums now. Thanks for help, anyway.
file /usr/portage/dev-python/bonobo-python/bonobo-python-0.2.0-r5.ebuild :
DEPEND="=x11-libs/gtk+-1.2* >=gnome-base/bonobo-1.0.9 \<dev-python/gnome-python-1.99 =dev-python/orbit-python-0.3* =dev-python/pygtk-0.6* virtual/python"
from what I see above it is impossible to have bonobo-python with gnome-2.12 at the same time. The required version of gnome-python is 2* not 1* Have you ever done emerge --update --deep ?
Maybe you didn't unmasked all the required packages, try with
emerge -DuNav worldand it will tell you what you've missed.
It is possible to have bonobo-python and gnome because I do have them both installed ;). You missed the fact gnome-python is slotted (gnome-python-1.4.4-r1 is SLOT 1, gnome-python-2.12.1 is SLOT 2). And I have both of them installed.
The deep emerge of gajim wants to update only one package related to python [ebuild U ] dev-python/pycairo-1.0.2 [0.9.0]. I think the rest is not important in this case (I can put the whole list here if you like, of course). And I would like to avoid recompiling gcc (from 3.3.5 to 3.3.6), glibc (18.104.22.16841102-r1 to 2.3.5-r2) and for example xorg (6.8.2-r2 to 6.8.2-r6).
I think I'm beggining to remember when gajim stopped working. As far as I remember I tried to compile the gnochm some time ago and tried to install all the requirements. I have to look into it.
Thanks for your help and time. I really appreciate it.
Problem resolved - I have gajim running at the moment.
I think it was the unmerging of gnome-python-1.4.4-r1, unmerging bonobo-python and reemerging gnome-python-2.12.1 what resolved the issue. Yet I'm not really sure about it since gajim began working after the hard reboot (sic!). When I have checked it the moment after the whole emerging process completed gajim was still trying to import bonobo.ui on load. Seems like system was feeding gajim the wrong version of the library all the time.
Thanks again for your time. And sorry for stiring up the water ;)
Thank you too, I sent a gentoo bug:
