gkrellm


I have slackware64-current as of today (July 17) installed. With that is the gkrellm package. After my update today, upon starting gkrellm, it causes a forced logout of my user. Anybody else see this?

I also tested it by removing the configuration directory ~/.gkrellm2. And that does not fix it.

I ran an strace to attempt to see if I could deduce what was going on.

When I ran strace, the program did not crash. I deleted the ~/.gkrellm2 directory a second time. And then I started the program normally and it ran successfully.

So, problem solved? Yeah
Do I have any clue why? No.

Alright, clearly this isn't over.

It had stopped crashing a few days ago, but appeared again tonight. Gkrellm2 does not load, but crashes down to the login manager. My guess is that it is a hardware detection error. It is not detecting something, and then it can't do some operation and then it crashes.

This had got to be a hardware issue, because it just stopped crashing the system again. The hardware has become unstable somewhere, a software issue couldn't simply be fixed by trying again.

Maybe its the headers like the other thread. I did slackpkg upgrade-all recently. Or at least it isn't helping the problem.
