xscreensaver-6.00-4.fc34

FEDORA-2021-c2e2cc1e9a created by mtasaka 2 years ago for Fedora 34

The bug is fixed that after a long time fontglide comes to no longer show any characters.


A bug is found that with some X settings X server sends multiple input signals and xscreensaver cannot handle them properly, making it impossible to unlock screen. This new rpm should fix the issue.


Fixes multiple reported issues.

Works. Fixes BZ#1954884 for me. Didn't check the other BZs.

BZ#1954884 xscreensaver displays three dots for every char

while testing BZ#1956262 in a virtual machine I get this output in terminal when opening "Help -- About...":

$ xscreensaver-demo
libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate
xscreensaver-auth: 00:11:05 OOM: /proc/1/oom_score_adj: Permission denied
xscreensaver-auth: 00:11:05 To prevent the kernel from randomly unlocking
xscreensaver-auth: 00:11:05 your screen via the out-of-memory killer,
xscreensaver-auth: 00:11:05 "xscreensaver-auth" must be setuid root.

I do not know if the message applies to EarlyOOM on Fedora. Or what the policy is about setuid root programs. The file "/usr/libexec/xscreensaver/xscreensaver-auth" has "-rwxr-xr-x" mode bits. chmod u+s xscreensaver-auth takes care of the message, no xscreensaver restart necessary.

On every system that uses this version of xscreensaver, I am frequently unable to unlock the screen at all, and must jump to a TTY to kill the xscreensaver process.

Downgrading to the version in the stable "fedora" repo fixes the issue instantly. Whatever was changed, it's not an improvement.

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

When pushing negative karma with such comments (i.e. not simple dependency issue or so but a issue needs investigation), please file a corresponding bug report.

@mtasaka Are you sure you want a bug report for a package only in testing? I can create one if you like, but seems a bit odd, at least to me.

User Icon subsentient commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

@mtasaka I will post the issue here in any case. On some machines, after several attempts with the correct password, it eventually lets me in. The number of required attempts is unpredictable. On others, the only option is logging in via TTY or ssh and killing xscreensaver.
