Description of problem:
As advised in bug #138714, I upgraded the x11 to the rawhide version
in order to see if it fixed the problem with the stuck screen
resolution. I have been using this recent release of x11, and have
noticed that both GYUM (gyum-1.0-1.fc2), and Synaptic
(synaptic-0.55.3-1.1.fc3.rf) now crash part way as they launch.
Thought it was worth logging as a bug before it gets released.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch GYUM or Synaptic
2.Screen starts to appear, then dissapears.
Actual Results: Screen starts to appear, then dissapears.
Expected Results: Both worked correctly just before upgrading the
Just upgraded to synaptic-0.55.3-2 from the Fedora Extras, and

gone, so I'm assuming this was a synaptic bug fixed in a newer
version of synaptic, and closing the xorg-x11 bug report as
If you experience further problems with synaptic or gyum, please
report the problem to the authors of the software for investigation.
