Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 612501
gdm-simple-greeter WARNING: gtk_widget_set_size_allocate .. height -1
Last modified: 2012-08-16 16:11:10 EDT
Description of problem:
Upon boot up I find a warnings similar to this in /var/log/messages:
gdm-simple-greeter: Gtk-Warning: gtk_widget_size_allocate(): attempt to allocate widget with width 264 and height -1
The "width" varies, seemingly depending upon the display size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seemingly deterministic on one machine (a netbook with 800x600 display), occasionally on a machine with a big display.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. check /var/log/messages
What is the malfunction with the application other than the error messages you receive?
Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I have a Sony Vaio laptop on my bench right now with this error. I've just installed Fedora 13 on it (with the latest updates). This bug apparently exists in both Fedora 13 AND Fedora 14.
It has a Nvidia (NV31M) GeForce Go5600 graphics chip and is using the Nouveau driver. The "malfunction" with the application in my case is that the login widget is never displayed.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
