Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186168
drivel EphySpinner not working
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open drivel program.
2. Look for "[custom widget creation failed]" message
No spinner picture. Some other features may be missing as well.
Spinner and other custom widgets should work.
Packager will refer upstream for help.
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.)
This has been fixed in CVS HEAD for drivel and upstream expects a new "official"
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.
I've prodded upstream for a new release as this bug makes drivel useless on x86_64.
The cvs snapshot is working like a charm. Closing the bug.
