synergys (synergy server) pixmap error under newest CentOS (7.2)
Last modified: 2018-02-07 20:43:09 EST
Description of problem:
I recently updated my system to CentOS 7.2 (from 7.1). It has a motherboard model Intel X7SPA-HF with Matrox video. I was using synergy from EPEL (synergy-1.6.2-3.el7.x86_64). This worked fine under Cent 7.1. After the update to 7.2, however, synergys will not run. Running it with "synergys -f" in the foreground says:
2015-12-19T21:14:41 DEBUG: opening configuration "/home/user/.synergy.conf"
2015-12-19T21:14:41 DEBUG: configuration read successfully
2015-12-19T21:14:41 DEBUG: XOpenDisplay(":0.0")
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 53 (X_CreatePixmap)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 15
Current serial number in output stream: 16
I was able to downgrade my xorg-x11-drv-* and this allowed it to work again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run CentOS 7.2 with matrox video (driver is mgag200)
2. invoke synergys (server)
server won't run
server would run
Is the new synergy version, 2.0.0, works for you?
