Description Simon Goodall 2006-06-19 05:20:09 EDT
Description of problem:
I have been trying to test dogtail using the recent red hat magazine article
However, dogtail will not start displaying the following error;
Detecting distribution: Red Hat/Fedora/derived distribution
Warning: AT-SPI error: pre method check: add: Unknown CORBA exception id:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/sniff", line 7, in ?
    from dogtail import tree
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/dogtail/tree.py", line 1154, in ?
    test = root.children
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/dogtail/tree.py", line 421, in __getattr__
    children.append (Node (self.__accessible.getChildAtIndex (i)))
  File "pyspi.pyx", line 434, in atspi.Accessible.getChildAtIndex

Can you please explain the relation between dogtail and hackedbox? Does this
only happen under hackedbox or did you simply file the bug under the wrong
Comment 2 Simon Goodall 2006-06-19 05:52:04 EDT
Oops, sorry. I must have lost focus in the description box when entering this bug.
Comment 3 Zack Cerza 2006-06-19 14:56:53 EDT
This is a known bug that was just fixed upstream on Friday. Just now I applied
the same patches to the FC5 and devel versions.
