Description pveax 2021-11-24 20:39:48 UTC

1. It is the same issue as was reported in the https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=446006 ticked, but on newer (even unreleased) git KDE app's version.

2. I select `ark`'s closest (newest possible) version to what I have in the `*Version` list, but I was USING the newer (still absent in the list) version:
~/Desktop ❯ ark --version
ark 22.03.70
~/Desktop ❯ 
The GIT COMMIT HASH is `fe618843`.


Ark crashed the plasmashell process when archiving (or ending to archive) a folder into 7zip default profile format (LZMA2, level 5/9 or 6/10)


0. Download the https://mirror.koddos.net/manjaro/unstable/core/x86_64/glibc-2.33-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst file to Desktop.
1. Unpack it. You got another archive.
2. Unpack it into single folder.
3. Click on mouse's secondary btn on that Desktop folder.
4. Select `Compress` -> `Compress to...`
5. In the popped up archiving setting window I have `7z` format already selected, probably I use default settings for all. Click OK.

Wait 10-15 seconds. Plasma panels disappeared and was restarted, core dump file appears.


`plasmashell` crash


No any crash while Ark archiving things.

App versions possibly involved here:
~/Desktop ❯ plasmashell --version
plasmashell 5.23.80
`plasma-workspace` commit is `81bb5ae6a`
~/Desktop ❯ dolphin --version

Severity chosen above crash, cause the process do not crash itself, but crash even other process.

Backtrace with no debugging symbols :(

Now for the Ark (which was not crashed) in the same core dump:

gdb /usr/bin/ark core.plasmashell.1000.d4580c22d52b48a3a96a4d87c5b2f1ae.975.1637772880000000
[New LWP 1202]
Core was generated by `/usr/bin/plasmashell'.
Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
#0  0x00007f5c38364d22 in ?? ()

(gdb) bt

#1  0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()


Again that `??`. But I can't compile packages on my low power PC for many hours in order to get debug symbols of all packages involved. For the case at least: plasma-workspace, ark, may be others also.

Nate, other KDE teammates, can you confirm, please: does my (or any other) crash reports are useless without debugging symbols?
This could save your and my time: to do not to: collect info, post report and read such possible garbage.

Thank you!
