Description Paul W. Frields 2006-03-21 23:05:58 UTC
Description of problem:
Some invalid casts cause the "spinner" graphic not to work properly in FC5. 
Example output follows:

(drivel:20941): libglade-WARNING **: could not find widget creation function

(drivel:20941): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid cast from `GtkLabel' to

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open drivel program.
2. Look for "[custom widget creation failed]" message

Actual results:
No spinner picture.  Some other features may be missing as well.

Expected results:
Spinner and other custom widgets should work.

Additional info:
Packager will refer upstream for help.

Comment 1 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-05-03 17:29:11 UTC
This bug is related to GNOME bugzilla: 328109

On i386, this merely results in custom widgets (ephyspinner and egg_datetime)
not showing up.  On x86_64, there is a segfault.  The segfault is triggered by
this bug but its root cause may be in libglade (I proposed that theory to
upstream and am awaiting a reply.)

Comment 2 Paul W. Frields 2006-05-03 21:37:09 UTC
This has been fixed in CVS HEAD for drivel and upstream expects a new "official"
release shortly.

Comment 3 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-05-03 23:25:06 UTC
I confirm that drivel's CVS HEAD no longer triggers the bug on x86_64.  drivel
HEAD does not crash on login on x86_64.

Comment 4 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-06-14 14:30:37 UTC
I've prodded upstream for a new release as this bug makes drivel useless on x86_64.

Comment 5 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-07-21 23:58:34 UTC
The cvs snapshot is working like a charm.  Closing the bug.

Thanks Paul!
