Summary: okular segfaults on computer that boots with
Product: openSUSE 11.4
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.4
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE4 Applications
Found By: ---
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0.0) Gecko/20100101
okular segfaults when starting up on one system, attempting to read a pdf file.
The same pdf files can be read without problems on other systems.
This appears to be related to my booting with "nomodeset" as a kernel
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on a pdf file, or run the command "okular file.pdf" from an xterm
The application starts then immediately crashes. A popup indicates a segfault.
The application should have displayed the content of the PDF file.
The particular computer freezes from time to time (video driver problems) - see
bug 682528. I am running with "nomodeset" to avoid that freeze.
I did try starting the computer without using "nomodeset", and okular works
correctly that way.
The KDE bug reporter complained about useless stack trace, and failed to find
symbol packages to fix that. I cancelled out of the reporting.
Note that a segfault often hints at a possible security problem.
My temporary workaround is to install evince (which works fine).
