Description Christian Korff 2007-04-25 17:46:31 UTC
qt seems to have a bug related to the hardened gcc. When I start qtparted it crashs with the following message:
# LC_ALL=C qtparted 
Warning: GNU Parted has detected libreiserfs interface version mismatch.  Found 1-1, required 0. ReiserFS support will be disabled.
qtparted: stack smashing attack in function void QPainter::setWorldMatrix(const QWMatrix&, bool)()

(Abgebrochen - Canceled; I don't know why it's ignored LC_ALL=C)

kevin, This is another QT/C++/SSP problem? if so can you mark it a dupe of that other bug.. tia.
Comment 2 Kevin F. Quinn (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-25 21:14:40 UTC
Certainly looks like the same thing.
Comment 3 Christian Korff 2007-09-15 18:29:41 UTC
A week ago I tried the vanilla gcc spec (using gcc-config) and it doesn't work. I want to note this for information.
Comment 4 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2007-09-24 16:51:51 UTC
Just a note that qt-3.3.4+ are working fine with gcc-4 from kevquinn's hardened overlay (kevquinn_hardened) here on amd64.

Thanks and yep.. These c++/KDE/QT bugs are a long standing 
gcc-3.x problem that are known to work in gcc-4.x

All existing c++ ebuilds that filter fstack need need to be re 
(tested|evaluated) for gcc-4.x. 

Thanks for the confirmation report.
Comment 6 Francisco J. Sánchez 2007-10-10 08:59:03 UTC
I can confirm the problem. Many qt (3.3.8-r4) apps send "stack smashing attack in function void QPainter::drawPixmap" (and many more functions in the same class) to stderr and crash.

Comment 7 Christian Heim (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-11-10 09:26:30 UTC
Due to SSP having issues with C++ code, I just placed a -fno-stack-protector in the x11-libs/qt ebuilds. Thus, you should no longer see those issues when emerging anything qt-based or QT itself.
