Description Prarit Bhargava 2006-05-30 10:57:33 EDT
Description of problem:

When vnc installing, the installation aborts with a mini-wm error.

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

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot boot.iso or vmlinuz, initrd.img from boot.img
2.  add "vnc" to install options
Actual results:

When the vnc session attempts to start the following error is displayed during
vnc installation:

Please connect to altix2.lab.boston.redhat.com:1 to begin the install...

Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'mini-wm' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadRequest'.
  (Details: serial 72 error_code 1 request_code 146 minor_code 2)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Expected results:

Installation should succeed.

Reproduced on i386 as well.

Bug 193558 is a ppc64 reproduced case.
Comment 5 Mark Smith 2006-06-08 02:19:00 EDT
Bug 193558 on ppc64 recreated slightly differently on the June7 snapshot of
rawhide.  That bug has an attachment.  My id does not allow me to attach to this
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2006-06-08 12:05:07 EDT
Today's Rawhide works on i386 for me, but it had been failing for a while prior
to today.  How's it looking on other architectures?
Comment 7 Mark Smith 2006-06-08 19:55:29 EDT
for ppc64:
The old error is gone.  With June8 rawhide I am seeing
