CRASH: gnome-shell says good bye in relation to qemu
Last modified: 2013-08-01 03:05:37 EDT
Running F17 here with latest updates.
GNOME Shell 3.4.1
QEMU 1.1.x or 1.2.x
Problem is this. Say you want to use QEMU to install some operating system somewhere as virtualization. This so far works normally and GNOME Shell behaves correctly.
But as soon as you switch QEMU into full screen mode the problems starts to come up.
Try this. Install an operating system somewhere or simply boot an iso image. Switch QEMU into full screen mode and wait.
After a while - in a default F17 installation - the window of GNOME Shell starts to dimm (later on it turns the monitor off to save powers) but due QEMU being in full screen mode GNOME Shell simply crashes (it flickers a few times and GNOME Shell is gone together with all window decroations leaving all windows undecorated on the screen). This is always reporucable here.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.
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 17'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 17 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, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
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.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
