Description Claes 2009-10-12 20:17:20 UTC
Full error message:
The requested operation could not be completed
Unexpected Program Termination
Details of the Request:
URL: fish://user@host
Protocol: fish
Date and Time: Monday 12 October 2009 22.11
Additional Information: fish://host
The program on your computer which provides access to the fish://user@host protocol has unexpectedly terminated.
Possible Causes:
This is most likely to be caused by a bug in the program. Please consider submitting a full bug report as detailed below.
Possible Solutions:
Update your software to the latest version. Your distribution should provide tools to update your software.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to an sshd with the fish:// protocol
2. Hope for the worst
3. I estimate it happens once every 50 connections attempts. Restarting computer often necessary to solve issue. Happens on both my private home computer and both gentoo workstations at office.

Expected Results:

Comment 1 Lukas Sandström 2009-10-19 20:54:33 UTC
It might be related to the (old) KDE bug
Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2010-02-21 23:28:45 UTC
What's your kde version, and does this problem still happen with 4.3.5 ???

> What's your kde version, and does this problem still happen with 4.3.5 ???

I can confirm the problem. However retrying does not help. The kde version is 4.3.5

$ uname -v -r
2.6.31-gentoo-r10 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Mar 28 13:35:03 CEST 2010
Comment 4 2010-04-11 12:02:46 UTC
The following workaround was inspired from a posting at the old KDE bug

As a workaround (on kde 4.3.5) you can start dolphin from the command line with
$ KDE_FORK_SLAVES=true dolphin
(Adding this to the K-Menu-entry works aswell.)

KDE_FORK_SLAVE=${i} with ${i} beeing one of "false", "0", "1", and "something" works as well. Maybe KDE_FORK_SLAVE is believed to be set, whenever it contains any string? Maybe one of the more experienced users can help here?

Claes, can you test the workaround?
Comment 5 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2010-04-11 18:46:53 UTC
Is there anything special about the server that you are connecting to? I.e., is it scp-only?

Comment 6 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2010-07-07 19:07:27 UTC
How about kde-4.4.4?
Comment 7 Sebastiaan 2010-09-14 08:01:43 UTC
I also have this problem. I have 2 (stable and up-to-date) Gentoo amd64 systems, both with konqueror and dolphin 4.4.5. One system has a full-blown KDE desktop, and works fine.

The other system only has the KDE libs and some applications (desktop is XFCE4). Despite that portage warns me that I have to install kdebase-runtime-meta or kdebase-startkde, dolphin and konqueror have worked fine before. Using KDE_FORK_SLAVE also works.

ps. It is not only fish, every protocol fails.
Comment 8 Sebastiaan 2010-09-14 09:05:57 UTC
Upgrading to 4.5.1 does not solve the problem, neither does emerging kdebase-runtime-meta.
Comment 9 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2011-04-08 19:09:09 UTC
How about kde-4.6.2?
Comment 10 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2011-04-17 20:56:23 UTC
Not a regression compared to 4.4, so does not block stabilization
