@ Seth Forshee (sforshee) the "crash" based bug got marked as dupicate of this bug. So surely this bug report should not be "incomplete" status. What's the progress here?
Trivial to reproduce using libreoffice package in bionic i386 VM as seen in autopkgtests all the time. ** Changed in: linux (Ubuntu Bionic) Status: Incomplete => Confirmed -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1699772 Title: linux-image-4.13.0-12-generic, linux-image-4.10.0-24-generic, linux- image-4.8.0-56-generic, linux-image-4.4.0-81-generic, linux- image-3.13.0-121-generic | Regression: many user-space apps crashing Status in LibreOffice: Won't Fix Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Status in linux source package in Xenial: Incomplete Status in linux source package in Artful: Won't Fix Status in linux source package in Bionic: Confirmed Status in linux package in Debian: Fix Released Bug description: Distribution: Ubuntu 16.04 x64 (Flavour: KDE Neon User Edition 5.10) linux-image-4.4.0-81-generic appears to contain a regression, probably related to the CVE-2017-1000364 fix backport / patch. Using this kernel, the Oracle Java browser plugin always crashes during stack-related actions on initialization. This means, the plugin completely stopped working. It works perfectly fine in linux-image-4.4.0-79-generic (vurlerable to CVE-2017-1000364) as well as linux-image-4.11.6-041106-generic, which also contains a fix for CVE-2017-1000364. uname -a: > Linux Zweiblum 4.4.0-81-generic #104-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 14 08:17:06 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux I tested Oracle Java 1.8 u131 as well as 1.6 u64 in Firefox 51.0.1 as well as Iceweasel / Firefox/3.5.16 in a chroot. Using linux-image-4.4.0-81-generic it crashes in all combinations while with both other kernels it works. I was not able to obtain any detailed crash information from Firefox 51.0.1, but Iceweasel 3.5.16 crashed completely, allowing me to obtain a stack trace which shows the relation to stack operations performed by the plugin, even without proper debug symbols: > (gdb) bt full > #0 0x00007fa06d805307 in _expand_stack_to(unsigned char*) () from /opt/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so > No symbol table info available. > #1 0x00007fa06d8053ae in os::Linux::manually_expand_stack(JavaThread*, unsigned char*) () > from /opt/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so > No symbol table info available. > #2 0x00007fa06d80cf0b in JVM_handle_linux_signal () from /opt/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so > No symbol table info available. > #3 0x00007fa06d802e13 in signalHandler(int, siginfo*, void*) () from /opt/java-8-oracle/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so > No symbol table info available. > #4 <signal handler called> I first assumed a bug in the Java plugin, but it works fine in Linux 4.11.6. The crash will be triggered by any applet, for example the test applet at: * https://java.com/en/download/installed8.jsp I'm running the Ubuntu 16.04 based KDE Neon distribution which somehow apparently does not allow me to use apport to report this bug: > $ LANG= apport-cli linux-image-4.4.0-81-generic > > *** Collecting problem information > > The collected information can be sent to the developers to improve the > application.

Please remove any third party package and try again. If someone can tell me how to get apport working for this package, I can use it to collect additional information, but (unfortunately?) the problem should be fairly easy to reproduce...
