This instance of Phoebe is running under vmware 3.2, build 2230.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-24 13:29:00 EST
As far as I know it works on things that are not vmware. You might try "strace -t -o /tmp/output -f gnome-terminal" or something along those lines and then "tail -f /tmp/output" while it's stuck, and see which lines repeat, or if it's even making progress.

strace does not appear to be loaded on my system. Is that a separate rpm I need to install? If so, is it on one of the cd's or in rawhide? Thanks

Oh, you have 8.0, I thought you were trying the beta. First thing to check if it's 8.0 is whether it works in the Phoebe beta. It's probably different/better. Installing the beta is sort of an undertaking though so don't feel like you have to check yourself. Anyhow, yes strace is on the CD in its own rpm.
Comment 5 Todd Booher 2002-12-24 14:43:16 EST
I am running the beta but it appears the strace is not loaded. I'll search the cd's for the rpm. Thanks

Here's the error message launching it from xterm: Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0". Thanks to warren for helping me track this down.
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2002-12-29 02:29:00 EST
Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0". The sluggish system behavior is consistent with what some applications do when RENDER isn't available. I've seen wine, earlier KDE builds, and flash5 cause this problem with 100% CPU usage when it didn't properly handle the lack of RENDER. All of these apps were later fixed to fall back gracefully.

Please, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=80414 for a very very close report to this :-)
