Subject: kmail freezes after startup: "Cannot execute call to system.login"
Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2005 11:01:27 +0200
Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.4.2-1
Severity: important

 use kmail as frontend for my imap mail. Right after startup it collects
 mailheaders and then freezes with the failure:

 kmail: WARNING: Cannot execute call to system.login: empty server URL

 This makes kmail unuseable for me. I found the following at the web:
 http://lists.debian.org/debian-amd64/2005/06/msg00104.html
 http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2005/04/msg00270.html
 The last message is indicating it may be a more general problem in 
 kontact/kde.

Subject: Additional strace info -- hints for solving -- RE:KDE-3.4.0 and knotes / kontact problem
Date: Thu, 29 Sep 2005 11:23:34 +0200
I tried to strace and had a log of 22Mb in about 2Min. for me it first
showed nothing,
but perhaps somebody knows a little more:

At the end its frozen with the following continuing for ever:

6019  write(4,
";\3\5\0003\4\340\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0z\0\20\0;\3\5\0\207\7"..., 448) = 448
6019  ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0])           = 0
6019  gettimeofday({1127982709, 395252}, NULL) = 0
6019  select(17, [3 4 5 6 8 14 16], [], [], {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
6019  gettimeofday({1127982709, 395354}, NULL) = 0
6019  nanosleep({0, 100000}, NULL)      = 0
6019  ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0])           = 0
6019  gettimeofday({1127982709, 396933}, NULL) = 0
6019  select(17, [3 4 5 6 8 14 16], [], [], {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
6019  gettimeofday({1127982709, 397027}, NULL) = 0
6019  nanosleep({0, 100000}, NULL)      = 0
6019  ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0])           = 0
6019  gettimeofday({1127982709, 398928}, NULL) = 0
6019  select(17, [3 4 5 6 8 14 16], [], [], {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
6019  gettimeofday({1127982709, 399021}, NULL) = 0
6019  nanosleep({0, 100000}, NULL)      = 0
6019  ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0])           = 0

In between there were things like this:
6019 
access("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
W_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such f
ile or directory)
6019 
access("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such f
ile or directory)
6019  access("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config", W_OK) = 0
6019 
lstat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No
such file or directory)
6019 
stat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No s
uch file or directory)
6019 
lstat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No
such file or directory)
6019 
stat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No s
uch file or directory)

Then I thought it might come from any configured xmlrpc ressource. I had
a connection to
an egroupware server running in former times:

keppler:~# dpkg -S egroupwarewizard
kdepim-wizards: /usr/lib/kde3/libegroupwarewizard.so
kdepim-wizards: /usr/bin/egroupwarewizard
kdepim-wizards: /usr/share/man/man1/egroupwarewizard.1.gz
kdepim-wizards: /usr/lib/kde3/libegroupwarewizard.la

And finding:
~/.kde$ less share/config/kresources/contact/stdrc

With lines with:
XmlRpcUrl=http:/egroupware/xmlrpc.php

I deleted the whole block. And kmail is now working.

I hope this will be useful for somebody. I will leave the bug open
because thats
impossible to solve for any common user!

Oliver

Thanks a lot, I had big trouble with it. But I think there should be a more 
general bugfix from the packager of the egroupware xmlrpc.

I'm not sure what this egroupware xmlrpc thing is.  Is that a remote 
addressbook link/thing?  :)  If so, are you saying KMail is freezing when it 
tries to look things up in it?  If so, are you saying that it's caused not by 
KMail specifically, but by the egroupware thing?  Is it a problem in 
egroupware causing a problem in KMail, which shouldn't hang because of an 
egroupware problem?  Who should this be assigned to/filed under?

Do you know how could I overclock the file?

The point is that you must reset a fan to receive from a wordprocessor to the 
46-inch ISA SIMM.
