#310 closed defect (obsolete)

Xephyr can't run on :100 on jaunty

Reported by: morgs Owned by: marcopg

Severity: Minor Keywords:

Bug Status: New

Description

Logged against Ubuntu jaunty:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/325706

Xephyr can only run on :0 or :1 in the default config, due to a more restrictive D-Bus policy.

I'm not sure how to resolve this since it would seem we need <allow own="org.x.config.display100"/> ... <allow own="org.x.config.display110"/> added to /etc/dbus-1/system.d/xorg-server.conf to permit running Xephyr the way we do.

I'll give feedback here from the Ubuntu bug report - consider this ticket informational only for now.

Do we know if this is something that should be done in upstream sugar or if it should be taken care by distros?

  • Milestone changed from Unspecified by Release Team to 0.84

Would be nice if we could understand what we are supposed to do here before 0.86.

Walter seems to have encountered this again (see #798). It has been marked as "Fix Committed" upstream about a month ago, but seems like they either didn't release the fix (just commit it) or it wasn't actually fixed.
We could add a workaround to sugar-emulator, but the actual fix has to be done upstream.
