Description Martin Steigerwald 2006-02-12 12:55:39 UTC
Version:           1.2.1 (using KDE 3.5.1, Debian Package 4:3.5.1-2 (testing/unstable))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release


today akregator told me that the XML feed list was corrupted and that it restored a backup. This worked nicely.

When I told Akregator to get new news for all the configured news feeds it crashed. I then tried to update them one by one. All worked, except:

heise online News

I have 1444 articles in there and many of them have the wrong date (1970 and 2033 as year for example).

The crash getting new news from heise online News also happens when I start Akregator as a separate application. 

Akkregator also crashes a few minutes after opening it and letting it sit in the background. Probably due to that it automatically tries to get new news for heise news.

Here is the crashdump... with debian package kdepim-dbg installed to have debug symbols:

martin@deepdance:~/.kde/share/apps/akregator/Archive -> mv http___www.heise.de_newsticker_heise.rdf.mk4* crashbug/

the crash doesn't happen anymore. So it seems that the archive m4k files (whatever that is) is corrupted. Still Akregator shouldn't crash.

I am attaching the corrupted m4k files.

Well I should note I am using Debian Etch/Sid combination with KDE 3.5.1 packages. Tell me when you need any specific information.

broken archive files for heise Online News

the m4k files seem to be broken, the xml file works.
Comment 3 Martin Steigerwald 2006-02-12 13:00:29 UTC
I should mention that there may be a reason for the broken m4k archive files as well as the corrupt opml feed file. A software suspend 2 suspend cycled halted a "Freezing processes" until I gave up and switched off the computer with the power button.
