Im having problems with galeon/ppc64 (and also with firebird/x86 over a network connection to my ppc64) and I think the problem is with xorg (?).

Galeon keeps crashing with:
The program 'galeon' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'RenderBadGlyphSet (invalid GlyphSet parameter)'.
(Details: serial 117372 error_code 176 request_code 152 minor_code 23)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

(so does firebird/x86 displaying to my ppc64 but its much less often).

Has anyone else seen anything like this? Google hasnt helped me much :-( in matching 'RenderBadGlyphSet'

The same errors here with epiphany and galeon, when browsing Chinese pages. There's no problem for English pages in my system(xorg 6.8.2, gnome 2.10).

ok.. this *might* be the reasons, why epiphany is ~ppc64 and galeon was never marked ppc64 in any way :wink:

does this mean you are running a "X over ssh" thing, or something like that? So basicly we need more info to track this down (emerge --info would be a start). can you please open a bugreport for this at bugs.gentoo.org?

Its not a mozilla/ppc64 problem, it seems to me like a font or xserver ppc64 problem.

Posted to https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98958

-----------

I just switched to ppc64 (I know that mozilla isnt stable, thats _NOT_ the problem) so Ive been using mozilla off a ppc32 chroot environ and via ssh from an x86 and ppc32 system (both of which are perfectly happy to run without this bug).

Situation:
Log into my X session on my ppc64
ssh to other host (creating x pipe from other host to my ppc64)
run web browser on other host (displaying to ppc64)
access http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Main_Page
page downloads but on display crashes with following...

Output:
korg@pookie ~ $ mozilla
/usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-xremote-client: Error: Failed to find a running server.
No running windows found
The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'RenderBadGlyphSet (invalid GlyphSet parameter)'.
(Details: serial 29433 error_code 176 request_code 152 minor_code 23)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;

It looks to me like a ppc64 _X11 server_ problem (given that ppc32 and x86 and ppc64 browsers all display the same problem but run fine when displayed on a non-ppc64 x server system).

Given that this isnt a very common problem (ie, only xyz on the forums also seems to have it) it seems probable that its just something i have done wrong...
