Launch GUI fails to connect

Priority: major Milestone: 0.11
Component: client Version:

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Using win client 0.11.0 r4903 the Launch GUI fails with the following message server-side:

2013-12-10 15:12:59,945 New connection received: SocketConnection(('', 1201) - ('', 64880))
2013-12-10 15:13:09,954 connection timedout: Protocol(SocketConnection(('', 1201) - ('', 64880)))
2013-12-10 15:13:10,956 connection closed after 0 packets received (0.0 bytes) and 1 packets sent (26 bytes)
2013-12-10 15:13:10,957 Connection lost

osx 0.11.0r4905 Launch GUI fails with the same message.

(There is no Launcher GUI option for choosing on/off for opengl.)

Regressing with the osx client, I find that the 0.11.0 r4745 Launcher GUI works as expected, but 0.11.0 r4748 Launcher GUI fails as above. (Uninstalling and re-installing previous win revisions is tedious, but I can go through the regressions with windows too, if needed.)

I just noticed that the Launcher GUIs, when their connections timeout, don't exit. With the osx client I had to use force quit to kill them. With windows I had to use the task manager to force quit (and, not noticing this at first, the hanging process made the uninstall attempt to try some regression testing fail).

Unless there is another major build difference, I don't see how r4745 would work and not r4748:

  • r4746 only affects platforms that build with the libav patches (Debian or Ubuntu)
  • r4747 only touches the OSX keyboard code
  • r4748 has nothing to do with the launcher GUI and is harmless

Well then, I was wrong: I bisected it down to r4748 on win32.

The problem should be fixed by r4936, the changelog message should have read:
#467 fix launcher breakage caused indirectly by r4748 (except I fat fingered it.. so it's missing)

But, you can't test that revision alone, because I messed up... The changes to the launcher in r4935 (to ease debugging) needed more changes from the same files... which I only added later in r4937.

I wasn't happy with just fixing the cause of this particular startup failure: the error should have been more obvious and shown in the "Xpra-Launcher.exe.log" log file, so r4939 improves error handling in the launcher.

Anyway, works for me on both OSX and win32. Please confirm and close.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

As of r4940 the Launcher works as expected on both win and osx for me as well. Closing.
