Description Vlad Mereuta 2001-06-15 20:21:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1)

Description of problem:
Installed updated XFree 4.1.0 rpms on an up2date RH7.1 system (needed to
install new glibc aswell). Everythings went smooth, except for sawfish
dumping core and dying everytime I try to start it (gnome, Wmaker, twm seem
to work fine). KDE doesn't even attempt to start :(

I can't figure out what went wrong. Tried to install the sawfish from
rawhide with no luck. After this incided I downgraded to the original XFree
and glibc packages, and surprise... kde and sawfish still die.
Could it be a configuration file issue?

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh XFree*.rpm; rpm -Uvh glibc*.rpm
2.killall gdm

Actual Results:  $ sawfish
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Expected Results:  sawfish...

Both work for me.  If sawfish dumps core, then it is a sawfish bug or 
local issue.  Ask for help on the mailing lists if you have trouble.

Also keep in mind rawhide is "raw".  It works for me though.
