Description mirjamv 1999-10-14 08:36:45 UTC
On my redhat 6.1 system gvim 5.4 crashes with the following
error:

prompt % gvim print_int_mat.m
Gdk-ERROR **: X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill
or server shutdown). child process failed to start gui

After this error normal vim is started and I can edit the
file. Normal vim also prints a "c" to standard-output before
exiting, so the prompt that appears after using vim looks
like

cprompt %

Finally the file "scripts.vim" is located in
  /usr/share/vim/vim54/
while vim searches for it in
  /usr/share/vim/vim54/syntax

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 15:23:59 UTC
gvim WorksForMe[TM].

The "c" is a bug in gnome-terminal, not vim, I think.  It has been
separately filed as a bug against gnome-core, which contains gnome-terminal.

Would you care to try vim 5.5 from RawHide and see if it fixes the
scripts problem?  For that matter, could you check if it fixes the
gvim problem that you are experiencing and that I cannot reproduce?

Thanks!

Mirjam reports in private email that 5.5 fixes all the reported problems.

Since the only serious problem here is the crash that I haven't heard
other reports of and which I can't reproduce, I'll consider this fixed
by RawHide.  If we get more reports of the crashing, we can consider an
official update.
