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):
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
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.
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.
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...
Sorry for being stubborn -Y made it work again.
