Description Richard Allen 2003-01-16 21:11:57 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021202

Description of problem:
After installing the KDE errata for 8.0 the screensavers dont even try to
activate.  I dont even get the blank screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kde errata for 8.0
2. watch the screensavers not activate :)

Actual Results:  Screensavers stopped working altogether.

Expected Results:  Screensavers should still work.

Additional info:

I saw in bugzilla lots of bugs about the screensavers in KDE, but most of the
time they always got the blank screen one.  I dont even get that one.

Hmm, i think it was already fixed in this errate release. I will test it again.
Could you please tell me which version of kdelibs/kdebase you have on your
system? thanks

I've discovered more.  Apparently /usr/bin/kdesktop_lock remains running.  If I
kill it, the screen with lock itself.   strace on the running kdesktop_lock gives:

select(16, [3 4 11 13 15], NULL, NULL, NULL) = 1 (in [3])
ioctl(3, 0x541b, [32])                  = 0
read(3, "\34\304\255\0n\0\0\0&\1\0\0 6\256c\0\0\0\0\n\0\0\0\310"..., 32) = 32
ioctl(3, 0x541b, [0])                   = 0
ioctl(3, 0x541b, [0])                   = 0
select(16, [3 4 11 13 15], NULL, NULL, NULL) = 1 (in [3])
ioctl(3, 0x541b, [32])                  = 0
read(3, "\34\304\255\0n\0\0\0,\1\0\0%6\256c\0\0\0\0\1\0\0\0\310"..., 32) = 32
ioctl(3, 0x541b, [0])                   = 0
ioctl(3, 0x541b, [0])                   = 0

ad inifinitum :)

i have found a bug. It's fixed in 3.0.5a, which will be released as errata soon.
