Re: [K12OSN] Rdesktop Fails after Update

I had the same issue on my FC6 workstation (not a K12LTSP client/server). This started happening some time last week, after I performed a yum update.

The "Segmentation Fault" error occured at random times, either immediately after I enter my username/password or after working fine for 5-10 minutes.

I tried compiled rdesktop (v1.5) from souce and the error still occured.

I then compiled rdesktop (v1.4) from source and so far, so good.

Hey, waitasec.  Not crashing from the console, but it is through the terminals, eh?  In that case, we might be seeing an X11 (on the client) issue.  Back when I was running UltraSPARC thin clients, I was using a release-candidate set of binaries of XFree86 4.4 (just before the Big Split).  See, I had Red Hat Linux 6.2 installed on the Ultra 5 boxes' hard disks, which uses XFree86 3.3.6.  The LTSP X11 binaries in /opt/ltsp/sparc were XFree86 4.4rc. TuxType and TuxMath would intermittently crash on me when TFTP-booting in normal LTSP style.  However, when I booted RHL 6.2 and had XFree86 3.3.6 do an XDMCP query, then TuxMath ran fine, but TuxType would simply not run at all due to the ancient X11 version.

Maybe this is what's biting you as well with rdesktop.

Do you GNU!?

Hello there!

Thank you for the suggestion! I have moved the old rdesktop and compiled a
new version using the source code at the website you provided. I did
notice some improvements, such as it defaulting to a higher color depth.

Unfortunately, the issue still follows. There is a segmentation fault that
happens when we attempt to login. It's also worth noting that the issue
does NOT occur when using rdesktop from console. It only occurs when
launched through a terminal.

Hmm...I vaguely recall seeing something like that a year and a half or so
back. Here's what I did. Try downloading the rdesktop source code and
installing it (it should install into /usr/local by default). Then, try
renaming /usr/bin/rdesktop to, say, /usr/bin/rdesktop.orig, and then
symlink your new rdesktop to /usr/bin/rdesktop. What we're trying to do
here is see if the rdesktop executable got FUBAR'd or if there's some
other library that it's looking for but can't find. When you compile it,
it will compile specifically for your libraries and shouldn't have any
