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?
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh XFree*.rpm; rpm -Uvh glibc*.rpm
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.
