Description Ozkan Sezer 2014-08-02 08:41:11 UTC
Description of problem:

See SDL bug 2325: https://bugzilla.libsdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2325
One of the affected games is hexen2 (uhexen2) as described in the
bug entry. The upstream has fixed it: Compiled SDL-1.2 from SDL hg
repository, running uhexen2 against it doesn't show the problem.

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

SDL-1.2.15 as appears in f20, and all other fedora releases.


Please apply the upstream fix:

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 12:32:47 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 8 Ozkan Sezer 2015-11-14 07:06:55 UTC
Is it possible that this fix be applied to RHEL6 and RHEL7,
and by extension to CentOS6 and CentOS7 versions of SDL1.2?

Comment 9 Petr Pisar 2015-11-16 07:21:15 UTC
Fedora bugs are independent from RHEL bugs. The decision is not up to me. Please contact Red Hat support to evaluate your request properly.
