Description Marc Williams 2003-11-11 15:44:40 UTC
Description of problem:
After viewing and then quitting xawtv, the mouse cursor changes shape
to an "X".  It remains a totally functional cursor even though it has
changed shape.  After a bit, while performing normal desktop
functions, it will return to its normal shape.

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start xawtv
2.watch tv
3.quit xawtv
Actual results:
Mouse cursor changes as described

Expected results:
Mouse cursor shouldn't change shape

Additional info:
This is a stock FC1 install.  There has been no changes to the video
driver or anything else.  The hardware browser lists the following:

Capture device - Bt878 (WinTV capture card)
Video Card - NV11 (GeForce2 MX)

This is running on an Athlon 1Ghz home made white box.  Everything
else is running quite well.  I would like to eventually get nVidia's
driver loaded but am in no rush.  I did add the v4l module to
XF86Config in order that xawtv might run in full screen mode.

Comment 1 Marcin Garski 2004-09-28 21:16:49 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer included xawtv
in Fedora Core. It has been replaced by tvtime.
Please upgrade to the latest version of Fedora Core and open a new bug
if the problem also occur in tvtime.

If you still use xawtv and this bug still persists, please report the
problem in upstream bug tracker or on mailing list
(usualy they can be found on xawtv website
If the project don't have bug tracker and mailing list, you should
sent bug report by email to xawtv maintainer.
Also Fedora Legacy Project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some
older releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them,
please report the problem in the bug tracker at:
