Most likely, yes.
It's unfortunate that this has been known for over a year and still no fix.
I also reassigned several ABRT crash reports to xorg-x11-drv-nouveau (there
are a few different backtraces, it's not just one bug) in Fedora and didn't
even get a reply.
Do any of you guys use Nouveau and this latest 16.08 PIM without
I see good karma left for for this release on Bodhi which makes me think
it is webkit/nouveau causing the issue and *not* PIM
A workaround is to start your kdepim apps with LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 or
QT_XCB_FORCE_SOFTWARE_OPENGL=1 set, e.g.:
You could even set QT_XCB_FORCE_SOFTWARE_OPENGL=1 globally in some profile
script, but that's kinda overkill, it would force the llvmpipe for all Qt 5
stuff including Plasma. (And of course setting LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1
globally would be even worse and force it for ALL apps.)
