Gkrellm with wifi not well drawn
Description of problem:
gkrellm doesn't refresh (or redraw itself) when a new component comes up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When a new network interface comes up (usually with wireless lan adapters) it gets added, and the gkrellm windows is now longer, but the lower part of the window shows the background of the desktop.
This happens with KDE. Don't know about GNOME as I don't use it.
I added a png that shows what I'm trying to express
Steps to Reproduce:
Thanks for reporting.
I believe this specific issue is best handled by upstream, so I've mailed upstream about it (with you in the CC).
Something I forgot to mention:
rolling up the gkrellm window and then unrolling it makes the window get redrawn.
FWIW, I run gkrellm in F-9 KDE, and don't see this problem. The interfaces that come and go in my setup are tun* ones created by OpenVPN, but I suppose that difference shouldn't matter. I have "Use window manager decorations" unchecked in General->Properties - dunno if that matters either but it makes my gkrellm look quite different than in the attached PNG.
Now that's strange. I have no General->properties option in system settings. What version of KDE are you using?
Not system settings but gkrellm config: right-click on the hostname shown in gkrellm, then Configuration->General->Properties.
OK, just checked some other things related to this bug.
1) Changing the properties of gkrellm doesn't help (any way I had "Use window manager decorations" unchecked).
2) This problem happens on my laptop computer. On my desktop computer at home I don't have this problem, even though both have F9 with the latest updates, running F9, similar video chip, same procesor type, etc.
This is getting very odd.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This issue went away some time ago.
Today I have F11 with gkrellm-2.3.2-4.fc11.x86_64 and I don't experience this problem.
