Description of problem: I installed Mageia 2 with net-install iso. When I try to add my google account in gnome online account tool, it crashes after I authorize access to my datas.
Got this in terminal when using dmesg | tail :
[ 98.627225] gnome-control-c: segfault at 78 ip 00007f6269ea302b sp 00007fffa9e2d3a0 error 4 in libgoa-backend-1.0.so.0.0.0[7f6269e95000+1b000]
When I do a tail /var/log/messages, I got something like this error message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): libgoa1.0_0-3.4.1-1.mga2
How reproducible: See details
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just add an account into gnome online account tool.
It crashes because gnome-online-account rpm is not installed. An installation bug ?
can you attach the file /root/drakx/report.bug.gz ?
At least it seems missing in the task-gnome or gnome-control-center
Gnome Online Accounts segfaults after adding an account. =>
Gnome Online Accounts segfaults after adding an account. (rpm missing)

report.bug.gz of my installation.
Package missing in Release Candidate too :(
Used DVD to install a RC version of Mageia with gnome, and gnome-online-accounts is still not installed.
Could be a bad thing for new users trying to use gnome accounts.

report.bug.gz from my RC DVD installation in virtualbox.
I asked the iso maker to include it in the DVD, but indeed there is no require or suggest.
Could you please install debug packages and provide a backtrace using that?
Of course. Will do this asap ;)
Some more infos : task-gnome doesn't grab missing rpm.
Olav : crash only occurs because gnome-online-account rpm is missing on installation.
I don't care that gnome-online-accounts solves the crashes. I'd like to know where it crashes. If it only needs some png files, I should split up the package.
e.g. task-gnome should NOT require gnome-online-accounts
dependency is somewhere between libgoa and goa.
Looking at error log, and as an end user, to me it is a bug in libgoa.
Besides this, let me be stupid : why not shipping goa while it has an entry in user menu ?
I'm just a stupid user trying to help. Close this bug if you want, but not shipping goa and its depends while installing gnome is like proposing a car with only 3 wheels.
It won't work.
Have a good day.
Because it might be better technically to go for another solution.
e.g. if libgoa wants stuff from goa, then make a goa-common with only the bits that are needed and have libgoa only require goa-common, not entire goa
Sorry for answering so late, but I didn't find debug file related to libgoa. Which packages ?
This bug was filed against cauldron, but we do not have cauldron at the moment.

Sorry for answering so late, real life and others things happened.
I installed Mageia 3 alpha 2 - from DVD - and this package is still not installed. Could be a blocking problem for lot of people which are looking for a fully working Gnome environment.
And sorry, sorry, sorry - did I say sorry ? - for the lateness :(
Sorry, took ages to do what you suggested. Cannot think of anything else..
