Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1297515
Celestia freezes and kills X
Last modified: 2016-12-20 12:47:28 EST
Description of problem:
On a dual screen running off i965 Xeon E3-1200 graphics, celestia starts up, brings up the initial screen and then freezes, and grabs the focus. I can Ctrl-Alt-F3 to the text screen, and sometimes I see the celestia process but other times it is gone. I think that sometimes while I'm in text mode the graphical session (gnome) restarts, so I can go back to it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run celestia.
Actual results: non-working celestia window, overall session locked due to input grab
Expected results: working application
I ran celestia in gdb from the shell prompt, but didn't see any messages.
I ran GDB session logging to a file (attached), but even then no messages were forthcoming---I think the X session dies and takes celestia with it.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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'
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 23 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.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
