Tk crashes in F-10 x86_64
Last modified: 2009-03-05 11:35:11 EST
Python crashes running these two lines. I can only reproduce it in a dell laptop.
from Tkinter import *
root = Tk()
It happens on a newly installed latop, with Fedora 10 x86_64 updated. It doesn't happen when connected via ssh -X, only in the console or with vnc.
I have installed python-debuginfo and libX11-debuginfo and ran python inside gdb.
The output is this:
(gdb) run gui1.py
Starting program: /usr/bin/python gui1.py

Other tcl/tk applications are crashing also: wish, ds9, etc. I'm changing component to tk.
The bug #480742 show up after upgrade of libX11, which is not the issue here. In F-10 is libX11-1.1.4-6.fc10.x86_64.
Could you tell me more about those crashes? I tried wish, ds9 and they are working fine. I have:
Exactly the same:
What's very strange is that apps only crash inside the gnome session (be it in a console or vnc). In remote with ssh -X they work just fine
Oh my, I always forget to check it in Gnome ;-)
Could you please try test it with the patch from rawhide?
You can download it here:
Yes! Applications are working now in gnome.

tk-8.5.3-5.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
tk-8.5.3-5.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
