Description Jarkko Suontausta 2005-07-09 23:01:29 UTC
Version: (using KDE KDE 3.4.1) Installed from: Debian testing/unstable Packages OS: Linux Hi, when I run an upgrade dbus or hal on my system, kded stops without a warning. No warnings etc. appear in .xsession-errors or syslog. I've tried to dig out some more info, but my attempts have been unsuccesful (how does one capture a trace of a running program until it stops with gdb?). I might have time to recompile kdelibs with debugging info some day though... Thanks for your time, Jarkko

Some additional info about my system: D-Bus version 0.23.4 HAL version 0.4.8 QT-mt 3.3.4

I guess that to become more friendly to hot updates, kded (and probably other components) should detect disconnection from dbus, and not only try to re-connect, but do so e.g. every second for a long period of time. This will let it to survive stop-upgrade-start cycles.
Comment 3 Nikita V. Youshchenko 2006-02-15 08:08:58 UTC
I believe this issue is important, because it causes problems with installing updates (including security updates) on terminal servers running KDE sessions - in such environment, restarting all sessions is not easy and very user-unfriendly.

Define what you mean by "kded stops". Does it freeze? Or does it still respond to DCOP commands (dcop kded)?
