Description Telsa Gwynne 2001-02-09 04:04:40 EST
Installed lavaps. Didn't see it on any of my
(GNOME) menus. Typed 'lavaps' at the command
line in a gnome-terminal. Prompt went away,
lavaps showed up very briefly in 'top', and
nothing else happened.

Tried as root, too, just in case. Prompt went
away again, and I didn't even get the usual
authentication whinging which I get running
graphical apps as root from the commandline
when su'd.

I think it's just plain broke :)

I can confirm this. The package that was in beta2/beta3 runs fine on an install
of 7.0, ,but fails in the Florence betas.

Last few lines of `strace lavaps`. It hangs on "read(11,":

fcntl64(10, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)        = 0
unlink("/tmp/fileXdEVYZ")               = 0
pipe([11, 12])                          = 0
fcntl64(11, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)        = 0
fcntl64(12, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)        = 0
fork()                                  = 29535
close(12)                               = 0

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-09 20:27:25 EST
Assigning to tcltk; the problem appears to be there.
Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2001-02-09 20:58:05 EST
Current tcltk fails many of its internal tests. I'm going to roll it back to the
last known good version until I can isolate the cause of this bug.
Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2001-02-13 13:42:24 EST
Rolling back to 8.3.1.
