Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 361741
Voronoi screensaver crashes Xscreensaver
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
Description of problem: The screensaver named "Voronoi" is selected to be the
screensaver and the screensaver activates. Then you move your mouse or press
keys to bring up the password box. Upon input the password box will appear for a
split second before disappearing -- giving full access to the logged in user
without prompting/checking the password. In other words, Xscreensaver has
crashed (missing from ps -ef list) and has to be restarted. This only started to
happen after the last Xscreensaver package upgrade. If I select any other
screensaver, it will not crash and works properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Voronoi
2. Lock screen
3. Move mouse or press keys to attempt password authentication
Actual results: Xscreensaver crashes
Expected results: Password box appears to authenticate user.
Additional info: 32-bit Pentium 4 3.0ghz with HT and all the latest package updates.
What does "rpm -qa | grep xscreensaver | sort" say?
I apologize, I should have originally included that for completeness.
$ rpm -qa | grep xscreensaver | sort
Ah ha... your question got me to thinking.
I checked your changelog and it says you split up the gl packages. I installed
xscreensaver-gl-base package and the voronoi screensaver no longer crashes.
Is there no dependency on xscreensaver-gl-extras requiring xscreensaver-gl-base?
If not, there should be. Feel free to close this bug, if appropriate.
Well, xscreensaver-gl-extras-1:5.03-12.fc7 actually requires
[tasaka1@localhost i386]$ rpm -qp --requires
xscreensaver-gl-extras-5.03-12.fc7.i386.rpm | grep xscreensaver
xscreensaver-gl-base = 1:5.03-12.fc7
So the correct behavior is that xscreensaver-gl-base should already be
installed in your system... Anyway thank you for reporting.
