Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 479098
Pigment Python examples generate an X Window System error.
Last modified: 2009-01-08 05:24:52 EST
Description of problem:
[trondd@niobium examples]$ pwd
[trondd@niobium examples]$ python text.py
The program 'text.py' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length erro'.
(Details: serial 15 error_code 16 request_code 143 minor_code 17)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
What pigment package do you have installed? If it's 0.3.13-2.fc10 then please try 0.3.13-3.fc10 (which is waiting to be pushed to updates), as it was quite badly broken. You can find it here :
Fixed! Pigment 0.3.13-3.fc10 from koji work just fine.
Great! I hope it gets pushed to stable updates soon, as it seems to have missed the last push by a few hours.
