Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 738092
swell-foop blank screen
Last modified: 2011-10-20 00:00:36 EDT
Description of problem:
In fedora 16 x86_64, the swell-foop games starts, but the body of the screen
where the tiles are supposed to appear is all black. In fedora 15 on the same
hardware it works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.see black playing field
black window body
tiles to click on
I looked at this a little more, and apparently it thinks it is playing the game.
I see info in the status line consistent with clicking on the invisible
tiles I can't see.
Marking as a Final blocker:
"All applications listed under the Applications menu or category must withstand a basic functionality test and not crash after a few minutes of normal use. They must also have working Help and Help -> About menu items "
note that in a Beta VM I just installed, swell-foop doesn't run at all, I get an abrt crash in seed when I try to launch it...
this still seems valid in 3.1.92, btw (on my regular desktop I get this, not the seed crash).
still valid in 3.2.0.
Discussed at 2011-09-30 blocker review meeting, accepted as a final blocker per criterion cited in comment #2.
This can be fixed by rebuilding cogl to use gdk-pixbuf2 for images, then swell-foop and lightsoff work fine.
Edward: thanks. Re-assigning to cogl.
peter: can you rebuild cogl as recommended by edward? thanks! this is a blocker.
