Dependency on xterm needed for suspend/resume
Last modified: 2011-06-19 17:44:35 EDT
Description of problem:
On Fedora 13, the Suspend/Terminate dialog window will not appear when the Ctrl-Alt-T shortcut is pressed or the NX window is closed, if xterm is not installed. If xterm is installed, both approaches work as they should.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use Ctrl-Alt-T or close NX window
Nothing happens if xterm is not installed
Suspend/Terminate window should appear
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.
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 13'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 13 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:
I wasn't even aware of the functionality, thanks for the report!
There seems to be several ways to display the dialog; /usr/bin/Xdialog will be used if it exists, then if /usr/bin/dialog exists xterm will be used with it, and finally if /usr/bin/Xdialog and /usr/bin/dialog are not available, xmessage will be used.
So the whole picture is a bit more complicated than just adding a xterm dependency, but I'll look into it.
This approach fixes it without adding new dependencies (causing a proper fallback to xmessage if no other supported dialogs are available):
