Description Graham Perrin 2021-04-11 02:52:26 UTC
I can't recall when I first installed Terminology (maybe years ago). I vaguely recall it being OK at the time. 

Today I tried maybe three times to use Terminology 1.9.0 with KDE Plasma on FreeBSD 14.0-CURRENT. On each occasion, shortly after performing a few actions the system became largely unresponsive for long periods. Almost no response to input on a peripheral USB keyboard; almost no response to trackball or trackpad input; and so on. htop in Konsole showed the kernel using around 300% CPU (4 CPUs). 

Actions such as: 

* using the scaler at start time

* clicking the grid button at top right

* resizing or moving the window

– nothing extraordinary. 

If I recall correctly: on the first occasion, Control-Alt-F2 eventually (after a long wait) got me to ttyv1 where I used htop to kill the process. 

In all cases: after killing or quitting Terminology, problems ceased. 

Below, the tail of /var/log/messages

… sorry, I forgot that Bugzilla wraps long lines.
Comment 2 Peter TKATCHENKO 2021-04-11 10:13:24 UTC
It seems that the problem is efreetd related - it crashes:
> stack overflow detected; terminated

Did you install EFL and Terminology from ports?
Did you used default EFL port setting?

We had many problems with efreetd in the past, but actually it seems to work correctly, I have no issues with it.

Could you, please, stop Terminology, stop all efreetd processes, then start Terminology from another terminal and paste here the output? Your environment variables could help to understand the issue too.

(In reply to Peter TKATCHENKO from comment #2)


This is most likely related to the recent bug report I just made which has a fix and is being dealt with by FreeBSD enlightenment team and upstream by the efl devs. I suspect the FD > 1024 was causing a lot of problems for a while on platforms that use the old select(2) system call for I/O multiplexing.

Refer to PR 256498.

Sorry for not responding sooner. 

Today, with the updated efl, Terminology seems fine, touch wood.
