Errors with X-server? (SOLVED)

Post  BarbaJoe on Sat Oct 22, 2011 6:51 pm

Greetings people of this community!

My name is BarbaJoe and I am a newbie in the linux world (well, I've been using linux since the last year but still there are many things that I need to learn) and I always watch the reviews and news that Kaddy makes Smile

Recently, I have updated my ubuntu 10.04 (you know, the "normal" security updates) the last wednesday, and then, I got a problem concerning zsnes and with wine when I try to run some exe files (the ones of another two emulators, fba and neoragex 5.3... yeah, I play old games, the ones I played in the golden era of the 16 bits consoles Razz). The point is that, when I try to start zsnes, I got this problem:

zsnes

When I try to run neoragex via wine, I got this:

fernando@fernando-laptop:/media/sda3/Emuladores/NeoRAGEx5.3$ wine NeoRAGEx5.3.exe
X Error of failed request: BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length error)

fernando@fernando-laptop:/media/sda3/Emuladores/NeoRAGEx5.3$


Again that line with "X Error of failed request...". I have search a little throught the web and I think that it's something related with x-server.

The last update I've applied contained this packages:

libgssapi-krb5-2 (1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.9) to 1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.10
libk5crypto3 (1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.9) to 1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.10
libkrb5-3 (1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.9) to 1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.10
libkrb5support0 (1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.9) to 1.8.1+dfsg-2ubuntu0.10
xserver-common (2:1.7.6-2ubuntu7.6) to 2:1.7.6-2ubuntu7.8
xserver-xorg-core (2:1.7.6-2ubuntu7.6) to 2:1.7.6-2ubuntu7.8


Anyone knows what can I do to solve this? Thanks in advance!
BarbaJoe

howdyyyyyyyyy BarbaJoe
Welcome to the forums! Bit slow in here but trying to get more contributers since i'm away alot! Very Happy

I love my old console games too, from sega master system, snes, mega drive etc. Love it!

about zsnes... hmmmmm. Have you tried removing it and reinstalling it? tried the latest version?

those permission errors however do look like a problem with xserver.... it doesn't seem to be able to access your mouse input.... weird

however, i have seen another post where somebody had the same problem and removing zsnes and it's configuration files/reinstall it fixed the problem......


so remove zsnes from the package manager/software centre..... look in your home folder, unhide all files........ look for a ".zsnes" folder, remove it and reinstall and it "should" work

http://forum.mandriva.com/en/viewtopic.php?t=130057

"mandriva example above that solved the problem for somebody"


as for your 2nd problem.... I am not too sure... can't find anything on the web related to neoragex in wine that is solved......... just try the same.... remove/reinstall it and see what happens if you havn't yet........

hope you get it sorted Wink

cheers for hangin in the forums

Dear Kaddy,

Thanks a lot for your answer and your kind welcome here. I solved the problem yesterday following another way Razz

I've tried uninstalling zsnes and installing it again, but it didn't work. I have also installed snes 9x but I have never like it too much :S. Thanks to the gods, I have found a solution for the x-server. It consisted in downgrade x-server:

a guy did this:
sudo aptitude install xserver-common=2:1.7.6-2ubuntu7
and
sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-core=2:1.7.6-2ubuntu7

When I tried this, zsnes was working well, but, when I quit the program, the resolution on the desktop was 640x480 :S.
Fortunately, there were updates available again, so this time, I installed all the updates avaiable, then, reboot and voilá, everything works well now. So that, I can continue with my savestates using zsnes and now when I quit, nothing happens with the screen resolution, everything is normal. And also, wine now works again with neorage and final burn alpha for some great old fighting games Very Happy:P

Again thanks for your answer pal,

BarbaJoe!

ah ok

so you downgraded xserver, then updated it? to the same version of xserver that was at fault? or a newer version of the faulty version?
anyways, glad you got it sorted. Might aswell mark the thread as solved if you could please. cheers man

I think that after I applied the upgrade to the downgrade Razz I have returned to the last version, but don't know if a better version of the buggy new version. Sounds weird but I works! Very Happy

I am running xserver-xorg-core 2:1.7.6-2 ubuntu7.10, which I think it is the newer one.

Cheers!
