Description Grosswiler Roger 2008-11-26 04:03:13 EST
Description of problem:
Compiz (Desktop Effects enabled) seems to reset X, when looking movies using Totem or Mplayer. No problem, if compiz (Desktop Effects) disabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- latest.

How reproducible:
- always

Steps to Reproduce:
- if Compiz enabled, start a Video
- X-Server Restarts, fall back to Loginscreen
- Login again
- Deactivate Compiz with Desktop Effects
- start a video -> works
- reenable Compiz using Desktop Effects
- start a Video
- X-Server Restarts, fall back to Loginscreen
- Login again

Actual results:
- Totem/Mplayer not showing movies
- breaking X, need to login again
- disable Desktop Effects

Expected results:
- Totem/Mplayer showing movies, even if Desktop Effects enabled

Additional info:
== unfortunately, no valuable Logentry found
== Video-Card: ATI Radeon Mobility

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Attachments connected:

Files having "This was first" have been created first, as i had on the installation of the system no xorg.conf. I issued this with system-config-display. Before trying, i delete all Xorg.0.log* from my system.

Afterwards, i moved away my xorg.conf.

i retested, enclosed files without having "This was first" in their description have been after moving away my xorg.conf. I did NOT delete the Logs before testing.

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 02:59:13 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'.

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 10'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 10 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: 
Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 01:56:46 EST
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
