Description of problem: Psi crashes as soon as chat window is scrolled
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): psi-1.3-1.1.mga6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Psi
2. Scroll the chat window
3. Psi crashes
I remember something similar was with Psi in Cauldron, but there it was fixed by packaging Psi without webkit support?
Assigning to the registered maintainer.
Should be fixed now with psi-1.3-1.2.mga6 in Core/Updates_testing repo!
Please test it, thanks in advance.
Tested - no crash any more. Otherwise seems to work OK too.
Assigning to QA,
Many users have reported that our current psi package crashes sometimes.
This issue come from the webkit support.
So this update fixes this issue disabling the webkit support.
Packages in 6/core/updates_testing:
with all Qt5 etc Big Update.
After hours of pfaffing about I eventually managed to create a jabber account, believed XMPP:
and get it to work with psi. I put in enough rubbish messages to create a scroll bar in the window - and scrolling that either with the mouse wheel or dragging the scroll bar itself did NOT crash the program!
This under LXQt; I will try from another desktop, then try the update anyway.
Now using Mate, still no crash when scrolling the chat window.
For good measure, added:
The program describes itself: Psi v1.3-dev (2017-10-29, webkit)
and behaved exactly as before the update. Posted some smileys. No regression = OK.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
