strange, it works for me. How many CPUS does your machine have?

could you please try 1.8 from 8.0 and let me know if it works,

Comment 2 Summer Maynard 2002-11-08 01:50:21 UTC
That IS strange.  This is occurring on a fully updated AS2.1 box with only 1
CPU.  I have also reproduced it on another box with 1 CPU.  I looked at it
because I also have heard of at least three customers with the same issue. 

I have tried to install 1.8 that ships with 8.0, which sets off a chain of
dependencies.  Here's the output from 'rpm -Uvh --force xosview-1.8.0-8.i386.rpm':

error: failed dependencies:
        libstdc++.so.5   is needed by xosview-1.8.0-8
        libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2)   is needed by xosview-1.8.0-8

When I go to install the libstdc++ package from 8.0, it sets off a huge list of
things that are using the old one.

Is there something else I could try?

please try this one on porkchop, i have rebuild it in 7.2 build tree.

Comment 4 Summer Maynard 2002-11-15 19:11:23 UTC
That one works just fine!  Did you find the problem with the other one?

Comment 5 Than Ngo 2002-11-18 15:28:01 UTC
I asumme that it's perhaps caused from kernel. I have tested xosview-1.7.3-5 on
Red Hat 7.2 and it works fine. AS2.1 should actually have the same enviroment
(apart from kernel).

Does it work for you, if you install kernel from 7.2 and reboot it with this kernel?

It would be nice if i could have test account on this machine to reproduce this bug.

This problem still persists with kernel-2.4.9-e.12 (kernel-enterprise-2.4.9-e.12).

With an older kernel, I could solve this proble bz upgrading to xosview from RHL
7.3, but with all xosview versions it hangs at reading /proc/stat:

[root@ls3187 root] strace xosview
open("/proc/stat", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 4
fstat64(4, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0444, st_size=0, ...}) = 0
read(4, "cpu  392205 54 193010 28209567\nc"..., 4096) = 4096

here it hangs, and it is clear why, because the contents of /proc/stat are more
than 4096 bytes. Because it is a proc file, a program needs to read this at
once, i.e. it should try to read 8192 not 4096 bytes. xosview waits for more
data to come, but it just won't ever happen.
