Description John Ellson 2007-03-19 17:53:03 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-terminal crashes immediately on startup, bringing down all other
established gnome-terminals, when starting on beryl or compiz.   OK on metacity.

This is an x86_64 platform with nvidia graphics

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start beryl window manager
2.start new gnome-terminal
Actual results:

ellson@ontap:~> gnome-terminal
The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 1139 error_code 8 request_code 72 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

(gdb) run
The program being debugged has been started already.
Start it from the beginning? (y or n) y

Starting program: /usr/bin/gnome-terminal --sync

Thanks for the references.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=231170  provides a work
around that works for me:
    XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 gnome-terminal

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10250  indicates that a fix is 
on its way in cairo-1.4.2
Comment 2 John Ellson 2007-03-24 12:51:28 EDT
I'm not seeing this problem now with cairo-1.4.2-1.fc7 installed.  I think this
one can be closed.
