Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154843
anytime a dropdown box is clicked, it goes blank
Last modified: 2009-04-16 16:07:20 EDT
Description of problem:
If you click a drop down box, it goes blank and the user has no idea what he/she
chose or can choose.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@tank-03 ~]# rpm -qa | grep system-config-cluster
This is due to not running ssh with trusted x11 forwarding. There is no solution
to this issue except through documentation telling the user that they should run
ssh with '-Y' option.
I am marking this deferred. I am thinking about adding code that runs at the
start of an application that 'tests the waters' of the x server and traps the
error message, if one is produced, so the app can analyze it and recommend that
the user run remotely with trusted X11 forwarding enabled. This needs some
thinking, however, and should be prioritized below more urgent bugs.
