Description Enrico 2011-08-13 00:04:55 UTC
Version:           2.1.0 (using KDE 4.7.0) 
OS:                Linux

Running face detection results in a crash nearly every time. Tested with current git at b52126a820bbaabe7e63a7da4a6f404af48ff07e

I found some similar bug reports, but all closed "fixed".

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Press "Scan collection for faces" and "Start"

Actual Results:  
At some point digikam crashes with a pure virtual function call.

Crash at /home/rikky/sourcecode/digikam/libs/threadimageio/loadingcache.cpp:247

it.value()->notifyNewLoadingProcess(process, description);

Expected Results:  
Face detection should not crash

QSqlDatabasePrivate::removeDatabase: connection 'ConnectionTest' is still in use, all queries will cease to work.

Comment 1 Marcel Wiesweg 2011-08-26 16:28:14 UTC
There were indeed similar bugs, and they were fixed (people could reproduce the crash, and after applying a patch it did no longer crash).

Now you have these crashes again, and not many other people. Is there anything special? Does it crash when scanning a specific image? The filenames are usually printed on the console. Are empty files involved, or files which cannot be loaded?

Comment 2 Marcel Wiesweg 2011-09-25 13:50:39 UTC

If possible, try with current git to ensure you have all fixes applied.
Comment 3 caulier.gilles 2011-11-03 12:42:30 UTC
digiKam 2.2.0 is out since few weeks. Crash still valid with this version ?

Gilles Caulier
Comment 4 caulier.gilles 2011-12-14 13:41:58 UTC

Can you reproduce the crash using digiKam 2.4 ?

New crash information added by DrKonqi

digikam (2.1.1) on KDE Platform 4.7.4 (4.7.4) using Qt 4.7.4

- What I was doing when the application crashed:

Started digikam from console: got message
QSqlDatabasePrivate::removeDatabase: connection 'ConnectionTest' is still in use, all queries will cease to work.
(I always get this when starting digikam)
scanned for faces on large collection of images (probably about 2-3000)
At some point (seems to be different each time) dk crashes with

pure virtual method called
terminate called without an active exception
KCrash: Application 'digikam' crashing...
KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/drkonqi from kdeinit
No itemShortInfo could be retrieved from the database for image "20060730_165211_img_8422.jpg" 

I had this crash symptom occurring on a different collection of images and after several runs it eventually processed the collection without crashing. (And I re-ran the scan on the same collection to be more sure that it wasn't a fluke.)

I already seen this trace in bugzilla. I thin it's a duplicate.

Backtrace of John Stumbles is a duplicate of the marked bug. The original crash report by Enrico is unrelated.
