I guess its time to troubleshoot this some.
I've had a situation on my desktop pc that with oS 11.3 when ever I
install a package via yast, after the install completes it loops back
around and I have to abort the install the next time around. Easy
enough, so I've ignored it.
But I just had a KDE crash. I told Dr. Kongi to install the debug
rpm's. It seems to have done that at least once, but now it is
apparently stuck in an infinite loop of doing the debug package
Saw exact same thing.
If you abort that install you can then re-create your abend and
submit a problem report, but I was never able to complete the
submission with the original abend because of this loop.
My Scenario was something like this:
Dr Kongi says report will be useless, do you want to install debug pkg.
You say Yes, it asks for root PW, you enter it
Install starts again, and again, and again.
No point in repeating it, because it is installing the same thing over
Break out of the loop with cancel.
Log in as root and double check that the debug pkg did in fact install.
(or course it did)
Then, go back and re-create your segfault because by this time its gone
from the screen and/or that instance does not seem to believe the debug
packages are there anyway.
Oh, and if anyone needs a reliable segfault to test with
just install phonon-VLC and have any notification trigger a sound effect.
At one time I had a Real Sig. Its been downsized.
