Problem with workman under kernel 2.2.15

Problem with workman under kernel 2.2.15

Post by Lew Pitche » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I've had to upgrade my Slackware 7.0 installation to kernel 2.2.15 in
order to get my SB PCI128 soundcard to work (I needed the 2.2.15 version
of the es1371 module), and now I'm seeing bizarre behaviour with
workman.

When logged on as a 'user', workman paints only the top half of it's
window (the part below the play arrow button is all white), and
generates a stack of error messages:
~ $ workman
XView warning: Notifier error: No condition for client
XView warning: Notifier error: No condition for client
XView warning: Notifier error: No condition for client
XView warning: win_send: No condition for client
XView warning: Notifier error: No condition for client
XView warning: win_send: No condition for client
XView warning: Notifier error: No condition for client
XView warning: win_send: No condition for client
(etc.)

However, when logged on as 'root', workman works as expected, painting
the whole window and generating no errors.

Obviously, there's a permissions problem somewhere, probably introduced
as a changed behaviour in a kernel API used by XView.

Has anyone run into this problem? Does anyone have an idea as to which
component needs to have it's permissions fixed?

Here's the stats on my system:

1. Feedback on 2.2.15 (wasRe: Kernel Stable: 2.2.15pre4 )

I've been trying the 2.2.15 prereleases, and so far they seem great.
2.2.15 pre 4 (subjectively speaking) made my system much zippier
than 2.2.13/4 and 2.2.15 pre 5 which I built last night, feels
faster still (and apparently has some rather neat debug code to
trap bad application memory use/kernel bugs).

So overall I'm very pleased. Many thanks to Alan and the guys who've
been working on the VM stuff. It feels great for me.

BTW I'm running this on Mandrake 6.1, Cyrix 6x86 MX 300, 64MB RAM.

Like I say, 2.2.15 feels like it's shaping up to be the best 2.2 kernel
yet by a significant margin (to me at least!)
