Description of problem:
The installer for PowerChute network shutdown fails when run with X
over ssh. Running the installer locally on FC3 works fine.

The problem happens in gnome sessions, but in a failsafe X-session it
works fine. As far as I can remember it used to work on FC2.

The installer is available from:


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log on to a remote server with X forwarded.
2. Start the installer.

Actual Results:  An empty window appears.

Expected Results:  The installer should start.

Ohh forgot to mention that other applications (xterm tested) works
without problems.

I think you might have come a cropper on the "ssh -X has changed to ssh -Y"
upstream change. If so see bug #141894 for some more details.
Comment 3 Pontus Fuchs 2005-01-05 12:17:44 EST
No. I have X-forwarding enabled in my /etc/ssh/ssh_config. All other X
application works fine. The X-server starts consuming a lot of CPU when trying
to start PowerChute.
Comment 4 Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-01-05 18:24:08 EST
Having it enabled may not be enough as there are now two ways to enabling it. However if you have tested with -Y please say so we can rule it out...
Comment 5 Pontus Fuchs 2005-01-07 04:07:59 EST
Sorry for being stubborn -Y made it work again.
