Description Yann Forget 2008-08-27 09:38:33 UTC

KPDF 3.5.9 crashes while trying to open this document:


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the link
Comment 1 Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-27 09:45:51 UTC
Which version of poppler do you have installed? 
Comment 2 Yann Forget 2008-08-27 10:14:30 UTC
app-text/poppler 0.6.3-r1
Comment 3 Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-27 10:27:11 UTC
could you do:
echo "app-text/poppler-bindings-0.8.6" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "app-text/poppler-0.8.6" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

and upgrade to that version and see if you can reproduce?
If that fixes it, we should probably think about stabling poppler-0.8.6
Comment 4 Yann Forget 2008-08-27 15:11:37 UTC
I upgrade both app-text/poppler and app-text/poppler-bindings to 0.8.6
But, now I have a dependency problem:


  ('ebuild', '/', 'app-text/poppler-bindings-0.6.3', 'merge') pulled in by
    ('installed', '/', 'media-gfx/inkscape-0.46-r2', 'nomerge')

  ('installed', '/', 'app-text/poppler-bindings-0.8.6', 'nomerge') pulled in by
    ('installed', '/', 'media-gfx/gimp-2.4.2', 'nomerge')
    ('installed', '/', 'kde-base/kpdf-3.5.9', 'nomerge')


  ('ebuild', '/', 'app-text/poppler-0.6.3-r1', 'merge') pulled in by
    ('ebuild', '/', 'app-text/poppler-bindings-0.6.3', 'merge')

  ('installed', '/', 'app-text/poppler-0.8.6', 'nomerge') pulled in by
    ('installed', '/', 'net-print/cups-1.3.7-r1', 'nomerge')
    ('installed', '/', 'kde-base/kpdf-3.5.9', 'nomerge')
    ('installed', '/', 'app-text/poppler-bindings-0.8.6', 'nomerge')

I am not sure what I need to do at this point, to resolve this.
revdep-rebuild tries to downgrade both packages.
kpdf still crashes.
Comment 5 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-27 16:11:41 UTC
@Peter: poppler is not relevant, since only the kfile plugin is using it, but not kpdf itself. The kpdf/poppler patches from Kubuntu halfway forced upon us only introduced new bugs and pissed off upstream.

@Yann: Good news is kpdf from KDE 3.5.10 doesn't crash - on the other hand, I don't know, if it would have with 3.5.9 on my box. Bad news is that I've to crawl bugs before committing 3.5.10.
Comment 6 Timo Gurr (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-27 18:32:19 UTC
The file didn't crash on my machine at work which is running ~x86 (KDE 3.5.9).

@Yann: Does gs crash if you try to open the file from commandline via $ gs your.pdf? Which ghostscript do you have installed and which version?

kghostview opens it, but the first page is not displayed correctly.
Comment 9 Timo Gurr (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-28 22:15:04 UTC
Please use ghostscript-gpl instead, ghostscript-esp is heavily outdated and no longer developed (actually it has been merged with/into ghostscript-gpl upstream). 

emerge -C ghostscript-esp && emerge ghostscript-gpl --oneshot && revdep-rebuild

I upgraded GS. The document is now displayed like in kghostscript. Kpdf still crashes.
Comment 11 Timo Gurr (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-28 22:57:00 UTC
Ok, you could try ghostscript 8.63 (and revdep-rebuild again). If 8.63 also doesn't solve your problem I'd suggest to wait a few days until KDE 3.5.10 hits the tree.
Comment 12 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-29 00:12:26 UTC
Would you please provide `emerge --info` output, Yann!?

crashes should be reported upstream, but since kde3 development is frozen you can't. Try to upgrade to 3.5.10 and update all deps. We can't do anything so closing
