Description Jörgen Busink 2006-03-24 09:36:21 EST
Description of problem: rdesktop crashes with the following error:

X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  78 (X_CreateColormap)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  7
  Current serial number in output stream:  8

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): rdesktop-1.4.1-3.2.1

How reproducible:
Just run rdesktop (or call through tsclient). eg: rdesktop Using -C
flag doesn't change a thing.

Additional info:

This is a clean install of FC5. Tried as unprivileged user as well as root.

j. Busink: just curious, is your machine a dual head?
Comment 2 Jörgen Busink 2006-04-03 10:15:08 EDT
Yes it it.
Comment 3 Mike McGrath 2006-04-03 10:22:41 EDT
I'm getting this same issue with rdesktop and qemu (dual-head).  I've seen
others that have the same issue but I have no idea whats causing it.  I'm
running the binary nvidia drivers, I'm going to do some testing and see if I can
figure out whats going on.
Comment 4 Jörgen Busink 2006-04-03 10:35:58 EDT
switching to twinview instead of xinerama fixed it for me.

this issue is related to the binary nvidia drivers. after some testing I noticed
the same (or similar) error messages when running other programs as well (most
notably glxgears). Thus this has nothing to do with rdesktop at all. I recommend
closing this bug.
Comment 5 Mike McGrath 2006-04-03 11:00:39 EDT
I'm seeing the same behavior.
Comment 6 Jonathan Trull 2006-05-22 16:11:30 EDT
I had this problem on RHEL4 using the Nvidia binary drivers and TwinView.  I
noticed that it started right at the same time I used up2date to update to
xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.EL.13.25.1 and friends.  I reinstalled the same version of the
Nvidia driver (I'm using AMD64/EM64T version 1.0-8756) and the error went away.
Comment 7 Mike McGrath 2006-05-23 17:00:18 EDT
Some new drivers are out, I haven't had time to test them though...

Comment 8 Robert 'Bob' Jensen 2006-11-23 04:44:34 EST
Fedora Version: FC6 Clean install
rdesktop version: 0:1.4.1-4
nvidia driver: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-legacy-1.0.7184-2.lvn6

X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  78 (X_CreateColormap)
  Value in failed request:  0x290
  Serial number of failed request:  7
  Current serial number in output stream:  8

Running a quad head so twinview is not an option nor is the open source driver.
I never saw this bug in FC5.

Fedora Core 6 is no longer maintained. Is this bug still present in Fedora 7 or
Fedora 8?
