Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484549
Example scripts do not run on x86_64

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. [trondd@niobium ~]$ python /usr/share/doc/pigment-python-0.3.10/examples/sphere.py
The program 'sphere.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.)
The problem is the same as described in #479098 which was solved in 0.3.13-3.
Note: I tested this on F10, but the packages were from rawhide.
There is a workaround in the package to fix this, and I tried removing it again, but tested on i386 only, so I thought things were working... but no. You want to be using 0.3.14-2.
Note also that my rebuilds of pigment-python for F-10 and F-9 are failing because the pigment rebuilds aren't available to them. I really don't know why this is happening now...
