Enlightenment Error

Every so often when using the 2008.8 image I get an Enlightenment window pop up with the title "Enlightenment Error" and the text:

This is very bad. Enlightenment SIGABRT'd.

And the option to recover (which restarts X) or exit (which quits X).

I can't seem to find a pattern that triggers it reliably.

installing gdb and getting a backtrace when the white box is up would be helpful... other than that i'd need a RELIABLE way to reproduce... i have yet to see the white box of death :(

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by shashank

I'm using FDOM (version 20080913)
and I'm getting this *white box of death* too

I'm guessing that it occurs whenever a qtopia application is launched. (be it Dialer, Calender...)
But it's not consistent. Sometimes it launches without errors also.

I have seen this on my neo as well. will look into this later.

don't run qtopia in Xsession, start illume first, attach gdb, then run qtopia.

raster suggested I give software_x engine a try instead of software_16_x. The SIGSEGV/SIGABRT is gone under software_x, which means this might be a bug in software_16_x.

comment:7 Changed 11 years ago by Benson

Any news on this? Getting the same SIGABRT message on om-testing! I get it even when doing nothing or entering a menu in the illume settings...

{{{root@om-gta02:~# /etc/X11/Xserver
* glibc detected * enlightenment: realloc(): invalid next size: 0x003be640 *}}}

Switching to software_x engine solves the problem, but it's much slower than software_16_x. Is there no way you can reproduce it? Might

comment:8 Changed 11 years ago by john_lee

upstream mainly works on software_x and illume-theme-illume, so this combination is known to work. if you prefer to use upstream illume theme, please switch to software_x engine. since asu theme seems to work with software_16, fixing this is low priority at the moment.

comment:9 Changed 11 years ago by rmn30

For those of you (like me) who didn't know how to switch 'engine' you can do it in the settings dialog (wrench) in illume.

comment:10 Changed 11 years ago by WRXIzumi

Someone on the community mailing list did a trace of the sigabrt and found that it was dying in the drop shadow module. I unloaded that module and have found there are a lot less errors when using SOFTWARE_16 engine. I went through all the items on the wrench settings application and found a few more that caused the error when starting (e.g. Themes). I unloaded all that caused an error. Now the only time I will get an error is occasionally when I am switching from the home screen to an already running applications.

comment:11 Changed 11 years ago by TimoJyrinki

How to actually unload drop shadow module remotely? (or switch the engine). I cannot get enlightenment_remote to work via ssh. I'd like to test the various options, though.
