#15383 new bug

app_server crash when using WebPositive

Reported by: DFergFLA Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Servers/app_server Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86-64


Don't know what to say. I keep getting this anytime I use Web+. Sometimes it happens right away. Sometimes I can be in the middle of reading somthing and then it will crash. It doesn't seem to be any particular site. I installed Haiku (64bit) from a nightly about a week or a little more ago. I do not remember the revision number. I have use the SoftwareUpdater to keep it up to date, I check for updates nightly.

Current Version: 53511

Misc Info: I don't have this problem when using Otter Browser. I have had this issue when using YouTube Downloader (I may not have the name of the software quite correct.)

I have no problems when I use SoftwareUpdater or HaikuDepot.

Web Positive Crash

I forgot to add that I do believe that the KDL stuff started around Sept. 25th

Summary: Web+ KDLapp_server crash when using WebPositive

This is an app_server crash, not a KDL. If you encounter it again, type "save-report" at the prompt (may take a minute or two to appear), and upon rebooting, you will find a debug report on your desktop.

I will do that.

I am going to add this here as I do not know if it is relevant or not. Recently I have seen the following behavior from Web+. I will open Web+ and start reading a page. It does not seem to matter what site or how many tabs I have open. After a few min, Web+ becomes less responsive. I am no longer able to scroll though a web page. I am not able to add an other tab. At this point I can go back and fort between any already open tabs. Menus will open, but clicking on web links doesn't open up anything. I can "close" Web+, but something isn't right. I can see see it's icon in the deskbar and I can't "reopen" Web+. There are only two ways I have found to get out of this. Either use "Ctrl + Alt + Del" and End Application, or reboot. If I do the "Ctrl + Alt + Del" I can reopen Web+ but get the same issues a few min later.

I do not know if what I am seeing is a Web+ issue or a Application Server issue. I will attach a log file in a few.

I noticed in your syslog an app_server crash. Not sure if it's the same one. BTW, do you have any additional fonts installed?

It's just app_server running out of memory. Reproductible very easily by running the WebKit testsuite. This is blocking the next release of WebKit because I cannot run the testsuite.

Used to run fine with the old allocator. I hope the pending improvements to fix "git gc" (which also runs out of memory) will help.

By the way, when you get at this prompt you can use the save-report command, and after reboot you will find a complete report on your desktop, which will be more useful than both the screenshot and the syslog.

If you mean a crash were you get a dialog box with options to "terminate", "Save Log", "Core Dump" I get them frequently when I'm in Web+. I have not installed any additional fonts. But, I have installed software from Haiku Depot, including QT based. Maybe something there installed some additional fonts. I am not sure.

I will try to get better are using the right terms for things in Haiku. Clearly I was wrong about it all being a KDL. Is there any documentation that can show me how to recognize different types of failures so I can use the right terms? It gets confusing for everyone.


I will be sure to do the "save-report" the next time it happens. Of course now that I want it to happen I can't make it do it. The other day it was happening every few min.

KDL says "welcome to Kernel Debugging Land!" at the top. Debugger doesn't. Don't worry, it's a common confusion, and we could make this more visible somehow (maybe a different text color?)

comment:8 by DFergFLA, 9 months ago

I do believe I got a real KDL. At least it says "Welcome to Kernal Debug Land" at the top. I did try the "save-report" but it doesn't seem to work in this case. I have attached a screenshot. I was running web+ at the time. Again, I do not know for sure if this is related to the this or needs to be a new ticket.

comment:9 by pulkomandy, 9 months ago

Yes, now that's an actual kernel crash. "save-report" doesn't work here, because the kernel is crashed and it would be too risky to attempt writing anything to disk, so in this case, pictures are better.

There should be a message on the first line, before "Welcome to kernel debugging land", which should tell us what happened. But in your picture it seems empty, which is strange.

The picture is cutting off the top of the screen, it appears.

I took a look at my phone where I took the KDL pic. There was an other picture I took first before I tried "save-report" and at the top I do believe that is what you say was missing. I replaced the original file I uploaded with this new one.

comment:12 by waddlesplash, 9 months ago

Likely this is also an OOM. Based on the log it should not be too hard to fix.

comment:13 by WildKeccak, 9 months ago

I'm as stock as I can be while still running software updater to keep up to date. I haven't seen KDL yet, but I'll keep trying.
