Description Greg Huber 2006-10-30 20:28:56 EST
Description of problem:
After starting Xmms, the app will crash and hang with the following error;

Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  serial 3357 error_code 8 request_code 72 minor_code 0

The app must be killed at this point.

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


How reproducible:
Happens every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Start the app, 
2) click on the 'D' icon
or select Options->Double Size
or type >ctrl>d while the cursor is on the app.

Actual results:
A window filled with garbage, but about the 
correct size appears but the app is dead.

Expected results:
A double size view of the current skin should appear

Same as bug 166469?
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-10-31 16:23:02 EST
Yep, the same, known upstream bug: http://bugs.xmms.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1907

Workaround: In a shell before starting xmms, do:


To make this permanent in the menu entry, change the Exec= line in
/usr/share/applications/redhat-audio-player.desktop to:

    Exec=env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 xmms -e %F

...or of course, a wrapper script could be created for launching xmms, perhaps
moving the original executable to /usr/libexec/xmms and calling that from the
wrapper in /usr/bin.
Comment 3 Greg Huber 2006-11-01 13:14:51 EST
Setting XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 before starting xmms works.
Thank You.

Wrapper script workaround applied in 1.2.10-29.fc* which will enter the FC6+
repos in the next push.
