Description Rex Dieter 2015-04-10 18:27:13 UTC
kwin-5.2.2 initial source tarball released to packagers was bad, but was inadvertantly used in kwin-5.2.2-1 builds.

It's badness is evident in eventual performance slowdowns, occasional freezes, and odd window management (sometimes a big X would appear on screen for no particular reason).

kwin-5.2.2-2 builds used the final/fixed source tarball and does not suffer from these problems.

Comment 1 Fedora Update System 2015-04-10 18:27:43 UTC
kwin-5.2.2-2.fc22 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 22.

Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2015-04-10 18:35:56 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 22-beta by Fedora user rdieter using the blocker tracking app because:

 important for kde spin, a bad upstream tarball (released early to packagers only) was used for kwin-5.2.2-1 build currently in f22 repos, and we didn't notice until shortly before freeze went into affect.  The bad symptoms are outlined in the bug, and kwin-5.2.2-2 uses the better final released source tarball (which does not suffer from the problems).

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2015-04-12 23:26:19 UTC
Since the image made it through  validation testing OK, which indicates it's good enough for initial deployment at least, I'm inclined to vote -1 blocker / +1 FE.

Comment 4 Jaroslav Reznik 2015-04-13 13:34:09 UTC
Same here, -1 blocker/+1 FE - I did not observe any of the issues mentioned above during my testing.

Comment 5 Stephen Gallagher 2015-04-13 13:54:53 UTC
I agree. -1 Blocker, +1 FE

Comment 6 Kalev Lember 2015-04-13 15:18:41 UTC
-1 blocker, +1 FE

Comment 7 Dan Mossor [danofsatx] 2015-04-13 15:45:56 UTC
I didn't notice anything specific to 5.2.2-1, and 5.2.2-2 doesn't fix the issues I'm currently seeing so -1 Block, +1 FE.

Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2015-04-13 16:15:35 UTC
Looks like we have a pretty solid -1/+1 vote on this one. Note we're doing an RC2 today so this will probably get in.

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2015-04-17 02:30:12 UTC
kwin-5.2.2-2.fc22 has been pushed to the Fedora 22 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
