Description Sergio Pascual 2009-03-04 08:10:21 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.

Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-03-04 09:37:20 EST
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:
Comment 4 Sergio Pascual 2009-03-04 11:17:13 EST
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
Comment 5 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-03-05 02:17:37 EST
Oh my, I always forget to check it in Gnome ;-)
Comment 6 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-03-05 03:19:51 EST
