Description Pete Zaitcev 2009-07-01 08:54:14 EDT
Description of problem:

Whenever anything is entered in image in GIMP, desktop hangs, no mouse

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an image in GIMP
2. Select any tool (for example, paint)
3. Press and hold, move

Actual results:

Desktop hangs solid.

Expected results:

No hang.

Additional info:

Button-down event is delivered (in case of paint, a spot appears),
but not the motion.

GIMP process can be killed, then desktop resumes. This is not an
OS-level hang. Also, it's possible to switch away to text console.

Forgot to add, kernel-2.6.31-0.33.rc1.git2.fc12.x86_64

Nothing interesting but perhaps will forestall Matej's form letter.

This may be related to bug 495454, but:
 - this bug tracks Rawhide and that 495454 is for F11
 - symptoms are different in detail (my cursor does not move, their does)
 - I swear this ONLY appeared after Rawhide bumped to F12, so how can it
   be same?

So, not duping.
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2009-07-05 12:18:25 EDT
The dmesg is probably not relevant. I tried the following:
 - running over a self-built kernel with DRM disabled (fails)
 - running remotely from an F10 system (fails)
So even if it's Radeon driver, it's entirely within X, not in kernel.
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2009-07-05 21:36:05 EDT
Actually my candidate for closing as duplicate would be bug 504300, but yes it is also F11. Assigning to developers but still suspicious that we have made some change to the driver in both F11 (post-GA) and F12 which causes this.
Comment 7 Pete Zaitcev 2009-07-16 00:23:36 EDT
I am not sure these are the same. In my case, X does not crash, just
locks up. However, I can switch to text console and kill gimp, which
unfreezes the X. I'll keep retesting and we'll see.
Comment 8 Pete Zaitcev 2009-07-21 21:04:41 EDT
Problem is gone in July 20 update.

xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.12.2-19.fc12.1.x86_64     <-------- not changed

Nothing interesting gimp's changelog, I think it was X core.
