Subject: gtimer: No possibility to add Project to any Task
Date: Mon, 18 Feb 2008 22:02:37 +0100
Package: gtimer
Version: 1.1.6-11
Severity: normal


Hallo,
  strange things happen ... when I use gtimer binary from 
etch distribution, I cannot assign project to tasks. Please run gtimer 
and try to select Task -> New or Task -> Edit from menu and new windows 
appears. This window has to contain two lines: Project and Task name. 
Using binary I see only one line in ths window - Task name.
  I get source package from lenny and make self-compiled binary. Running 
this binary it works as expected at this point.
  A bit of history: The same thing happens me with sarge distribution  
(i386 platform). It seems that this bug doesn't depend on actual version 
of program, but I really cannot find the source of this strange 
behavior.

Regards,
  Pavel

Hm.  It does work fine for me (and did for me with sarge).  I'm not sure
what could be causing it either.

Hi,
  really strange ... do you want to see screenshots? :-)
  Seriously: I have two different binaries, one works fine, another one fails. Running from menu or from command line /usr/bin/gtimer the wrong one binary runs.  Running /usr/local/bin/gtimer (the self-compiled binary) It works fine. I can send you downloaded etch package gtimer_1.1.6-11_amd64.deb. Unpacking and running gtimer (from Midnight commander) lead to wrong "Add task" window.
  Running different binaries leads to different results, so I think that there is no problem in an environment setting (default setting for gtk, etc.). Can it be problem of library linking? Broken package has been installed? Size of original package is 85978 bytes, but I think it must be signed.

Pavel

Hi,
  another experiment: I've tried to download binary package from lenny gtimer_1.1.6-12_amd64.deb and run binary version from this package. It works fine.
  Could I ask you to move this testing package to next stable revision (if policy will allow it) or to backports?

Thank you,
  Pavel

Okay, I have duplicated this problem.  I'm not sure what's going on, but
the binary for amd64 in etch seems to be broken.

There are no relevant changes to the source between -11 and -12, so I
assume that something was broken about the compile in etch.

If you run:

    apt-get source -b gtimer

on your etch system to download the source package from etch and rebuild
it, does the resulting Debian package work correctly?  If so, I can
request that the stable release managers just rebuild the existing source
of gtimer in etch for the next point release.

Okay, I've requested that the binary be rebuilt for stable on amd64.

Subject: gtimer has been removed from Debian, closing #466453
Date: Tue, 17 Feb 2009 21:26:19 GMT
Version: 1.1.6-13+rm

The gtimer package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/382727 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.

Kind regards,
