ia64: vnc installation fails with mini-wm error
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:34 EST
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
When the vnc session attempts to start the following error is displayed during
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.)
Installation should succeed.
Reproduced on i386 as well.
