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


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,

Some additional info about my system:
D-Bus version    0.23.4
HAL version      0.4.8
QT-mt            3.3.4
Comment 2 Nikita V. Youshchenko 2006-02-15 08:03:41 UTC
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)?

features. It'll be available in KDE 3.5.4, couldn't be committed before,
but thanks to the partial feature unfreeze...
