Description Robert Vojta 2002-07-10 06:37:21 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020625 Description of problem: I've installed Limbo and want to try Sawfish WM alone without Gnome. `switchdesk windowmaker`, wmaker -> sawfish (.Xclients-default) and login. Now, I little bit customize sawfish by sawfish-ui tool and set random window placement. Oooops, each new window crash sawfish, especially gmp library where assertion failed in lt function (see below). So, I modified ~/.sawfish/custom and I removed all random stuff. Now, sawfish works "fine". Yesterday I was working on some math stuff in LaTeX and I want to see my output in xdvi and it fails again in the same way as above. As you can see, everything is related to assertion failed in _gmp_rand, especially lt( function. Related output is here ... <output> XFree86 Version 4.2.0 (Red Hat Linux release: 4.2.0-50.17) / X Window System (protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600) Release Date: 23 January 2002 If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is newer than the above date, look for a newer version before reporting problems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Limbo, choose Sawfish as alone WM (without gnome) 2.Choose random window placement (in customization tool) 3.Try to open any window, for intance xterm 4.Sawfish exits Actual Results: Non working sawfish with random, it's not usable for desktop work with lot of windows ... Additional info: I'll attach my tahak.tex file, so you can dvi it `latex tahak.tex` and try to display result by `xdvi tahak.dvi` and you'll see crashed Sawfish. If this will not work, try the other thing, customize sawfish to place new windows randomly and sawfish crash will be here too.

Created attachment 64525 [details] DVI it and try to display, Sawfish crash
Comment 2 Robert Vojta 2002-07-10 06:38:54 UTC
P.S. Maybe, it's not Sawfish related problem, it can be rep-gtk or gmp library, but I'm not sure, so I started at Sawfish ...
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-07-10 14:48:03 UTC
Believed to be fixed in gmp 4.1-4
Comment 4 Robert Vojta 2002-07-10 19:19:11 UTC
Tried with 4.1-4 and it works fine here, thanks ...
