Description Thomas Heinz 2009-02-26 22:07:16 UTC
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-180.35 causes kdesktop_lock and amarok (maybe others as well) to crash on a hardened system. Here is the output of `valgrind kdesktop_lock`:

==4549== Invalid read of size 4
==4549==    at 0x61BC1EE: (within /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib/
==4549==  Address 0x210188 is not stack'd, malloc'd or (recently) free'd
==4549== Process terminating with default action of signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
==4549==  Access not within mapped region at address 0x210188
==4549==    at 0x61BC1EE: (within /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib/

The problem does not occur for x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-180.29.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Portage (default/linux/x86/2008.0/desktop, gcc-3.4.6-hardened, glibc-2.6.1-r0, 2.6.23-gentoo-r6 i686)
System uname: Linux-2.6.23-gentoo-r6-i686-AMD_Athlon-tm-_64_X2_Dual_Core_Processor_3800+-with-glibc2.3.2

Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2009-02-27 02:09:47 UTC
It does not only crash on hardened systems, it currently seems to crash all Linux systems from A to Z. ;)
Comment 2 Stephan Rave 2009-02-27 16:07:09 UTC
See bug 260441
Comment 3 Gordon Malm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-01 03:36:54 UTC
nvidia-drivers is masked on hardened.  We do not support the nvidia binary driver.  That said, it appears the nvidia 180.xx drivers have many issues:
