PostScript file that gv can't view none

Description Jonathan Kamens 2002-03-10 05:30:27 UTC
I have:

  gv-3.5.8-15
  ghostscript-6.53-4
  XFree86-4.2.0-6.39

I am reporting this as an XFree86 bug because I believe the only thing that has
changed recently is XFree86.

When I attempt to view the attached trivial PostScript file with gv, I get an
error dialog that says this:

X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  73 (X_GetImage)
  Serial number of failed request:  36
  Current serial number in output stream:  36

Error: PostScript interpreter failed in main window.

Oddly enough, I can view the file if I convert it to PDF with ps2pdf.

Changing component to gv.

Comment 3 Elliot Lee 2003-02-21 21:33:24 UTC
Works here with rawhide-ish X/gv/ghostscript.

Comment 4 Jonathan Kamens 2003-02-22 23:22:46 UTC
I have gv-3.5.8-22, XFree86-4.2.0-72, and ghostscript-7.05-27, and it's still
failing for me.  Unfortunately I can't upgrade these packages to current Raw
Hide because to do that would require upgrading others that would break
compatibility with vmware.  However, I've got more current packages on my
machine at work, so I'll try there on Monday and see what happens.


Comment 5 Jonathan Kamens 2003-02-24 20:41:54 UTC
Yup, works for me with current raw hide.
