#674 closed defect (fixed)

ssh ... "xpra start ..." fails with "Broken pipe" when ssh closes

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

0.14.5 on 64bit Ubuntu 12.04

This used to work but now fails:

ssh $RHOST "xpra start :$RDISPLAY --csc-module=cython --start-child="xterm" --exit-with-children --no-microphone --no-speaker --no-pulseaudio"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/xpra/scripts/main.py", line 103, in main
    return run_mode(script_file, err, options, args, mode, defaults)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/xpra/scripts/main.py", line 760, in run_mode
    return run_server(error_cb, options, mode, script_file, args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/xpra/scripts/server.py", line 829, in run_server
    + ("  %s\n" % log_filename0))
IOError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe

This works:

ssh $RHOST "xpra start :$RDISPLAY --csc-module=cython --start-child="xterm" --exit-with-children --no-microphone --no-speaker --no-pulseaudio; sleep 1"

This works:

xpra start ssh:$RHOST:RDISPLAY ...

This is fixed in r7575, will backport to 0.14.x

Do you happen to know when this started happening?

BTW, are you using csc-module=cython to workaround buggy swscale by any chance?

Backport to v0.14.x in r7583. (keeping open because of the questions above only)

comment:3 Changed 7 years ago by Troy Cauble

I can only narrow the start to within the last month.

I'm using cython due to some color issues with H.264, see #568.
Looks like that's closed now. I can probably quit that.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Thanks, that helps. Closing.

Not sure about #568.. I think I saw that bug again yesterday on Ubuntu 12.04, maybe they've bumped the version we use for blacklisting and kept the bug!
