Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 502928
Xephyr utility should be resizable
Last modified: 2012-09-11 15:06:00 EDT
Description of problem:
I should be able to resize Xephyr windows Tools like qemu and sandbox could give the user a better experience if the windows resized properly with the parent window.
I think the problem is not passing the Resize event down to the Xserver children.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

proposed solution for resizing xephyr
This is a modified version of the patch from Dan's link that works. I have tested it against the current version of xorg from cvs.
This seems to work, although a little flashy. Thomas fixed it so it can be wrapped by another application or run on its own. I need this fix for F13/F14 and RHEL6 if at all possible.
Thomas can you see about updating the patch at
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.
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 12'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 12 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:
The fix is in RHEL6, is there any movement on upstream?
Adam any update?
