Description Matthew Miller 2007-08-01 04:04:16 UTC
See the thread at: http://foo-projects.org/pipermail/xfce4-dev/2007-May/023071.html

The short summary is: xfce-mcs-manager wakes up a lot, which is annoying on
laptops and bad in general. A patch that solves this has been written and
applied in svn. It should be pretty clean to apply since upstream has backported
it to the 4.4.x branch -- and also for that reason, it's a temporary fix for
Fedora since it'll be included with the next upstream release.

In the meantime, could you pull this fix into the Fedora package?

Thanks!

Yeah, I was hoping for a 4.4.2 release here, but it hasn't happened yet. 
I will look at pushing that fix in in the next few days. 
I have another fix or two for xfce-mcs-manager as well.

Thanks for the report.  

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2007-08-01 15:49:43 UTC
Cool, thanks.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2007-08-02 03:53:36 UTC
ok. I have built a new version for rawhide/devel. Can you confirm it works as
you expect? 

You can get it from koji now: 
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=12540
or it should be in the next push after the test1 freeze is over. 

If you can confirm it's working as you expect, I will push out a f7 and fc6
version. 

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2007-08-02 17:14:03 UTC
Appears to be much better. Thanks.

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2007-08-02 19:39:32 UTC
Excellent. Thanks for the testing. 

I have gone ahead and pushed out a F7 test version too. 
If that looks good, I will do fc6 after the f7 one is in updates.
