Strange crash and screen problem with teamviewer7

Post#1 by att » 11 Dec 2012, 11:40

Hello,
I am trying to get Teamviewer 7 to run with Porteus-1.2/64 bit.
Unfortunately, there are some problems. The problems can be reproduced.

a) I boot Porteus-1.2 / KDE mode. Everything seems fine, except the screen resolution is too small, so I change it from 1024x768 to 1680x1050.

My boot command line is:

Code: Select all

LABEL xconf
MENU LABEL Graphics mode (KDE)
KERNEL /boot/vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=/boot/initrd.xz vga=791 splash=silent quiet autoexec=xconf;telinit~4 toroot lang=de_DE nonetwork passwd=mypasswd volume=0% copy2ram
TEXT HELP 
b) I start a Konsole terminal.

c) I add my network IP *manually* :

Code: Select all

ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0
route add default gw 192.168.0.1


Network works fine. Also DHCP works, since my /etc/resolv.conf is preconfigured correctly by "rootcopy" method.

d) In the same console, I start Teamviewer 7 with "teamviewer &"

Now something unexpected happens. The Teamviewer screen crashes, and the screen resolution suddenly behaves as if it was switched back to 1024x768, but remains at 1680x1050.
All icons or windows larger than 1024x768 get sort of truncated and mirrored - all icons appear twice after 1024 x-pixels. See screenshot:

e) No matter what I try now, the "bizarre" screen resolution does not go away. Even when I try to log off and log on again in the hope that KDE will be restarted: The bug on the screen is still here!

f) HOWEVER, if I do not configure my network manually, but if I configure it with "dhcpcd -i eth0" instead, the bug DOES NOT APPEAR.
I have no clue what to do now. The "manually configured" network works fine with any other network program like Firefox, etc. Just "teamviewer" bitches.

My modules:

Code: Select all

compat32-libraries-1.1.02_13.37-x86_64-2ftm.xzm	46.702.592 bytes	
teamviewer-7.0.9360-x86_64-1ftm.xzm	13.217.792 bytes 
What to do, now? I really NEED Teamviewer, and I don't need DHCP...

Hi att,

I am not sure what happen but my teamviewer 7 is working without problem on Porteus-1.2/64 bit with kernel update. FYI I have also activated multilib-v09-B2.xzm

Which kernel update do you mean?
I now tried to downgrade to Porteus 1.1/64bit, and got the same result: Strange screen problems when the network was configured manually. No problems whenever DHCP was at work earlier!
FYI, "multilib" has got nothing to do with Teamviewer. Teamviewer runs without multilib.

Hi att,
Linux-3.4.9 kernel update
http://ponce.cc/porteus/x86_64/current/ ... ftm.tar.gz

Thanks for pointing out. I will deactivate multilib and test.

FYI I am running copy to ram mode.

Might i suggest setting up your network using the Porteus Network Setup tool.
Then run teamviewer in konsole without '&' so you get all konsole output. Post any errors here.

Hello,

I'm doing some bug research and I can tell you there are other ways to trigger the bug.
Here is what I just have been doing:
a) Install Porteus-1.2/64bit on USB-Stick
b) boot "KDE" - NO EXTRA PARAMETERS - STANDARD BOOT - (fresh boot, no save changes)
c) {my screen resolution is misconfigured to 1024x768 so I change it with Start -> Preferences -> Monitor Settings to 1680 x 1050}
d) start "winecfg" in the console : Result : Wineconfig now immidately triggers the bug. The screen is, once again, strangely splitted, as soon as the window "mono should be installed (cancel/OK)" appears. Same screen like screen shot above. NO ERRORS from Wine in the console.

e) Once the bug was triggered, and the wine-config-dir and files have been created, the bug will not appear again. It is more stable under LXDE - in LXDE I can restart the X system ("init 3" - startx) and the bug will disappear, never to be seen again, since the .wine-config-dir is here.

So, as a workaround, one can copy the .wine dir to the /rootcopy folder on the usb stick and everything will work.
But, I am not really happy with this workaround.

Any help appreciated ! :%)

It seems to be a conflict without your xorg config and teamviewer wrapper which applies a another config and not compatible with Porteus or even your current system

hello att,

i think you should sort out this issue first:
b) boot "KDE" - NO EXTRA PARAMETERS - STANDARD BOOT - (fresh boot, no save changes)
c) {my screen resolution is misconfigured to 1024x768 so I change it with Start -> Preferences -> Monitor Settings to 1680 x 1050}
as it should come with maximum resolution at start.

please run 'psinfo' and upload to pastebin.com
i also need full /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

once we fix this then i'm sure teamviewer bug will be gone.

Cheers
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
