Description Bryce Nesbitt 2001-05-20 09:05:52 EDT
Description of Problem:

On a working RH 7.0 system, I installed 7.1 on a new partition.  On
starting Gnome as a user or root I get:
   "Deskguide (the desktop pager) applet appears to have died unexpectedly. 
   Reload this applet?"
Reloading results in the same message.  Cancel only works for a while, then
it comes back.


Additional Information:
	It's a totally stock RH 7.1 system, but runs Accellerated X from
http://www.xig.com
	(build 6000/DENALI,AX).  I can't run XFree on this video card, otherwise
I'd
	try it.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-05-21 10:38:41 EDT
It probably is an AccelX interaction. Do you have anything in ~/.xsession-errors
(or if you used startx, on the console you started X from)? DeskGuide probably
printed some sort of error message.
Comment 2 Bryce Nesbitt 2001-05-21 12:37:54 EDT
Here's the output.  I started with a recent Xaccel, and just to be sure upgraded
to the latest patch.  It's still here:

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-05-21 13:54:49 EDT
Hard to tell which messages might be from desk guide - maybe you could "tail -f
.xsession-errors" as you try adding the applet, and see what appears right as
the applet dies?

Though I'm guessing it's that BadMatch, which will be hard to debug since I
don't have AccelX to reproduce it.
Comment 4 Bryce Nesbitt 2001-05-21 18:24:50 EDT
You can download a free 10 minute-limited version from http://www.xig.com
 Bryan Chambers <chambers@xig.com> is the contact.  But I think it is clear this
is an AccelX problem, not a generic Gnome/RedHat packaging issue.
Comment 5 Bryce Nesbitt 2001-05-22 12:25:10 EDT
The bug is more noticable if you set "16M with overlays" as the color mode.
