Description Mathieu MD 2012-10-28 22:06:12 UTC
Application: kwin (4.9.2)
KDE Platform Version: 4.9.2
Qt Version: 4.8.3
Operating System: Linux 3.5.0-18-generic i686
Distribution: Ubuntu 12.10

-- Information about the crash:
- What I was doing when the application crashed:

Just using Gramps 3.4.1 on Ubuntu 12.10.

However, the crash only -- and always -- happens when I'm using Gramps. I can use this computer for hours without problems, but if I start Gramps, Kwin will crash after a few hours, and eventually KDE will completely crash a few hours laters, leaving me back to the LightDM login panel.

Today it crashed 4 times. Below is the file-nr contents at each crashes.

# mathieu@inspiron:~ # 00:38:32 28/10 #
cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr
397632  0       616817

# mathieu@inspiron:~ # 15:37:59 28/10 #
cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr
164800  0       616817

# mathieu@inspiron:~ # 18:27:04 28/10 #
cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr 
175072  0       616817

# mathieu@inspiron:~ # 22:41:47 28/10 #
cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr 
164800  0       616817

The crash cannot be reproduced volontarily, but simply starting and using Gramps will lead at a moment or another to a crash of Kwin.

Is it a KDE or a Gramps bug, or something else?

The crash can be reproduced every time.

Comment 1 Thomas Lübking 2012-10-28 22:11:01 UTC
Driver bug.
Do you use the oxygen gtk+ style?

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 307580 ***
Comment 2 Mathieu MD 2012-10-29 19:16:13 UTC
Yes indeed, oxygen-gtk is selected for both GTK2 and GTK3. Shall I use something else?
Comment 3 Thomas Lübking 2012-10-29 22:59:31 UTC
The crash occurs on loading the shadow image provided by the style for popups.
While this would still be a bug in the driver, it might be exposed by some bogus pixmap data - if you encounter no further crashes of this type, it might be worth to take a closer look at that data (the Qt style uses the same infrastructure. So if it does not cause this...)
Comment 4 Mathieu MD 2012-11-04 11:59:07 UTC
Thanks Thomas. Indeed, from the moment I used "Ambiance" instead of "oxygen-gtk" for GTK theme, I did not encounter any more crash.
However, I do not know what to do about your comment to "take a closer look at that data"...
Comment 5 Thomas Lübking 2012-11-04 14:01:16 UTC
Thanks for the update.

Did you alter the gtk3 style as well?
Could you bisect if only one of them is affected?

I meant the below ;-)

the crash is a bug in OpenGL/Mesa, but it might hint a bug in the oxygen-gtk style (providing junk textures) since it does not seem caused by oxygen-qt
