Description Daniel Walsh 2010-06-04 20:51:19 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #502928 +++

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.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

This bug should stay open.  Moved to F12.  Really need this for RHEL6...

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.
