Xpra fails to start on Fedora 22 — at Initial Version

Reported by: jonathan.underwood Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: critical Milestone: 0.16
Component: server Version: 0.14.x
Keywords: Cc:


So, the way Xorg is started has changed yet again for the Fedora 22 release.

On F22 XORG_BIN gets set to /usr/bin/Xorg which is a shell script that execs /usr/libexec/Xorg.wrap which is then supposed to exec /usr/libexec/Xorg after doing it's stuff, instead of /usr/libexec/Xorg.bin in F21.

So, that's the first problem - XORG_BIN should be being set to /usr/libexec/Xorg, rather than /usr/libexec/Xorg.bin. So, the logic in setup.py needs enhancing.

The second issue is then that, even when XORG_BIN is correctly set to /usr/libexec/Xorg in xpra_Xdummy, the X server fails to start with this:
(++) Log file: "/home/tom/.xpra/Xorg.:100.log", Time: Mon May 25 12:30:08 2015
(++) Using config file: "/etc/xpra/xorg.conf"
(==) Using config directory: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d"
(==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
Fatal server error:
(EE) parse_vt_settings: Cannot open /dev/tty0 (No such file or directory)
