Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 65053
xosview spins on init under kernel 2.4.18-4smp (but not 2.4.18-3smp)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
xosview does not work on my RH73 box with kernel 2.4.18-4smp
xosview DOES work on an otherwise identical box with kernel 2.4.18-3smp
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to kernel 2.4.18-4smp
2. Run xosview. Tested using both SSH X tunnel and local console
No window comes up, xosview spins taking 100% of CPU
xosview comes up in an X window
When xosview runs on a newly installed RH 7.3 system updated to kernel
2.4.18-4smp, xosview fails.
Specifically, it spins at 100% cpu without coming up. This problem does NOT
appear on an identical box having kernel 2.4.18-3smp.
Attached are strace and /proc/stat outputs
