Description PeterF 2009-12-25 16:06:31 UTC
Application that crashed: plasma-desktop
Version of the application: 0.3
KDE Version: 4.3.4 (KDE 4.3.4)
Qt Version: 4.5.3
Operating System: Linux 2.6.31-1-686 i686
Distribution: Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid)

What I was doing when the application crashed:
After a recent update of my Debian Squeeze (testing) installation on my Dell C640 Notebook the KDE Desktop crashes every time I log in to the system.

Comment 1 Dario Andres 2009-12-25 17:05:02 UTC
This is likely to be related to bug 217316. Was your "hal" package updated to 0.5.14 ?
Comment 2 PeterF 2009-12-25 21:09:08 UTC
Yupp, the hal package (now?) has version 0.5.14
I'll try to downgrade to see if that will fix the issue.
Any idea where to get a version 0.5.13?
There is only a 0.5.14 version on the Debian FTP server. :-(
Comment 3 Dario Andres 2009-12-25 21:15:11 UTC
May be from some outdated mirror?
Comment 4 PeterF 2009-12-26 00:37:03 UTC
Found a version hal_0.5.13-6 and it fixes the issue.
Nevertheless I also found a Debian Bug report #561724 which claims that the actual problem is caused by a bug in kdebase-workspace (ref KDE Bug #219143) and should be fixed with version kdebase-workspace_4:4.3.4-2. 
(it also provides a link to a version 0.5.13-6 of hal


In todays repository I found:
kdebase-workspace       4:4.3.2-2
kdebase-workspace-bin   4:4.3.4-2
kdebase-workspace-data  4:4.3.4-2

Therefore I guess I keep hal_0.5.13-6 until a kdebase-workspace 4:4.3.4 comes along.

I guess this bug report therefore can be closed.

Thanks for your support
Comment 5 Dario Andres 2009-12-26 01:28:06 UTC
Merging with bug 217316. Thanks for the information about the Debian tracker

Comment 6 Hugo Mildenberger 2009-12-26 01:43:47 UTC
hmm, this again looks more like bug 219333
Comment 7 Dario Andres 2009-12-26 02:01:02 UTC
Er, yes.. the backtrace is more similar.. Let's see if the reporter still experiences the issue after upgrading to the patched package.
