Description A. Lok 2006-07-21 16:45:08 EDT
Description of problem: Nedit is really, really slow, and crashes on file>save / file>open. I think it is caused by an updated openmotif version, since at install nedit worked flawless. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): nedit-5.5-8.fc6 openmotif-2.3.0-0.2.1 Steps to Reproduce: 1. start Nedit 2. Notice slow redrawing of the application 3. press ctrl-S or File > Save 4. Nedit closes Actual results: Nedit closes Expected results: Save-file dialog Additional info: information after the crash on the command-line: X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 91 (X_QueryColors) Value in failed request: 0xffb3b3b3 Serial number of failed request: 4532 Current serial number in output stream: 4532

Updated to Fedora Core 6 test 2, since it isn't working right in this version either. -Slow behaviour is gone -Still crashes on File > Save, File > Open -Nedit windows have a green border (see attached image) installed versions: nedit 5.5-8.fc6 libXp 1.0.0-4.1 openmotif 2.3.0-0.2.1

Yes, it's likely caused by the updated openmotif, nedit crashes with: X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 91 (X_QueryColors) Value in failed request: 0xffb3b3b3 Serial number of failed request: 4596 Current serial number in output stream: 4596 on File/Open...

Jindrich: Is nedit setting the path for rgb.txt?
Comment 5 Jindrich Novy 2006-08-28 12:16:06 EDT
Nope, I grepped all nedit sources, but found no reference to rgb.txt.
Comment 6 Thomas Woerner 2006-08-29 11:25:34 EDT
This seems to be a xlib problem with the composite extension. For now you have two solutions: 1) Set XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS environment variable export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 2) Set visual for nedit to Default nedit -xrm "*VisualID: Default" -- Assigning back to nedit.

Created attachment 135197 [details] Patch to fix random nedit crashes I wrote this simple patch to fix this. It still allows an user to redefine the default visual by the -xrm nedit option, but it disables best visual detection and sets the Default one regardless the list of visuals which is available.
