Thread: YAST segfault - revived

  1. #1

    Default YAST segfault - revived

    I found this archived thread.

    I'm experiencing the exact same problem, but:
    • This is a clean OpenSUSE 11.4 installation (the installation went flawless)
    • I got the error while adding an https repo from the build service (though I *think* I mistyped the URL - plus the build service URL should be http)
    • After restarting yast, everything went fine


    I bet there's a segfault happening when trying to parse a broken repo (ie: broken download or even just a 404).

    Code:
    YaST got signal 11 at YCP file packager/repositories_include.ycp:188
    /sbin/yast2: line 423:  2780 Segmentation fault      $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS
    PS: sorry if the forum's not the right venue for reporting bugs, I couldn't find any clear links on OpenSUSE's homepage. Not that I grepped or something ;-)

    did the work around offered in that thread work for you?

    did you log a bug with bugzilla, here:

    Actually, merely restarting yast (and typing a correct URL) worked around the problem, but a segmentation fault is a serious kind of crash (of the kind that more often than not allows security exploits), that's why I'm reporting it.

    you should report it....but this is not the place....this is a forum
    of users helping other users....the folks who have to FIX the problem
    are not here...they do not come here looking for things to fix...

    if you do not log a bug they will not know it is still broken..

    please if you want help, ask for it in these fora...but to *report* a
    bug please do that here:
