* Upgraded to XFree86 3.2, now xtetris is dead

Post by Starm » Tue, 11 Mar 1997 04:00:00

Hi all,
        I upgraded my Linux 2.0.0 to XFree86 3.2. I have Slackware 3.1.
Everything went OK, except now my xtetris comes up with a window with the
same dimensions as before, but the buttons are clumped in the upper left
hand corner. Obviously, the game doesn't work. Any clue as to why this is
happening? Thanks.

        [and his xtetris no longer works]

I just upgraded Linux 2.0.0 to XFree86 3.2 as well, and I can confirm
your problem, with a slight variation.

I have an S3 ViRGE card and couldn't get X going with XFree86 3.1,
although it is not clear to me whether I should have been able to or
not. However, I was able to run xtetris on the display of another

Now that I have upgraded to XFree86 3.2 I have a working X server (I use
the S3V server), but xtetris simply doesn't run on it. When I run
xtetris from another machine, I see the behavior you describe.

1. Async on AIX 3.2 on 220 DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!!!

Dead, as in braindead.  I have applied several pathces that came from IBM
defect support to fix various cu and uucp problems and slip problems.  Now,
guess what happens - every other way of accessing tty's is dead.  Including
gettys's and ate.  The specific PIF# was U402532 - did that patch break
anyone else's ate???  Please tell me.... I can't get my slip line up because
that patch seems to have broke my ATE access to my RS6K at work - due to
another bug in slattach (the one that causes multiple slip interfaces to
RANDOMLY attach to a tty assigned for slip - otherwise known as, it picks
a slip interface randomly and if it is the wrong one, the mahcine just
discards all pakcets).  Basically, I get a modem carrier (via audio) and
then it just dies andhangs up the phone.  CU also does the same thing with
a "rec'd carrier lost" or "dead" or something like that.  I am only now able
to get on to post news via my ancient Sun 3/60.  The only reliable machine
I have ever owned.  Myabe I'll just buy a Sparc...IBM, are you listening...
I think not.  YES - THIS IS A FLAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


SLIP dies after 12 to 24 hours....depending upon how much data you send
Async dies after 5 minutes at high bps
Pathces kill things that worked before....You know the story.

Please, someone, help me.  This is getting crazy.  My SE is probably being
driven insane by my 1:00AM calls on Sundays or Saturdays (not that I'd spare
him to fix my problem...but I wan't it fixed!!!!)

Is there anyone from IBM here on the net??????  That can help?????

Has anyone on this group signed off on IBM and gone to Sun?  I would like to
hear from you.  Maybe then I can convince my management that that is what
we should do as well.  It may not be a bad idea.  (As my Sun 3/60 is the
only reliable machine I've got at home now.  Or at work, for that matter!)
