Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241830
Xdmx clients do not display pictures
Last modified: 2008-04-08 04:12:51 EDT
Description of problem:
For some reason X clients connecting to a Xdmx server do not display images.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. X :1 -ac
2. Xdmx :2 -ac -display :1
3. DISPLAY=:2 gnome-terminal
You can see in the attached screenshot that pictures that should have been
there are not visible. Additionaly the Xdmx server spits out lot of error
messages like this one:
(**) dmx: dmxErrorHandler: BadName (named color or font does not exist)
(**) dmx: Major opcode: 155 (RENDER)
(**) dmx: Minor opcode: 30 (RenderSetPictureFilter)
(**) dmx: ResourceID: 0x200e47
(**) dmx: Failed serial number: 22698
(**) dmx: Current serial number: 22795
I have reproduced this on XFree86 4.5.0 running on NetBSD with neomagic
driver and xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.8.fc6 with sis driver. The problem
was not reproducible with Xnest.

Could you reproduce this with FC7?
Well, yes, since Xnest doesn't advertise the Render extension, gnome will use
the non-Render code path and never hit this problem.
This is almost certainly a DMX bug.
ajax: exactly. With Xdmx -norender things look right
mcepl: no idea, did not have opportiunity to try. Will report once I try.
Moving to devel since this is probably still an issue there.
Any updates on this? Matej: still interested in results of fc7/devel test? If
yes, please NEEDINFO from me.
Well, when ajax thinks it is a problem, I think there is no need to bother you
now. If we need anything in the future, we will let you know.
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
I could no longer reproduce this in Fedora 8.
