Cannot run xpowerchute...


I've recently installed PowerChute plus version 4.5.3 on my Fedora 14 (Gnome 2 desktop).
Configuration went fine and the software actually works (as a daemon).
But the GUI part of the PCP (xpowerchute) cannot run. It just exits with the following error:

Code:
[root@mzsrv powerchute]# ./xpowerchute 

fatal: FATAL ERROR: MSG 0x0034b3ba [CAT 3/4 STD 46010 ]
Category: XVT release 3 assert (Signaled assert4)
Function: xvt_app_create 
File:     ./kfont.c line: 838

./xpowerchute: line 150:  4173 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) ./_xpwrchute 2> /dev/null
[root@mzsrv powerchute]#
Is there some problem with fonts?
Can anyone help?

.. indicates it may be font related, can you try running it with strace? ( strace -f -s 256 -o /tmp/xpowerchute.trace <command> ) .. this might show us which fonts its trying to use. There'll be tons of output but the error should be near the bottom, let us know if you need help interpreting it.

You were right... There were tons of output ))) But I've noticed that font related lines start with writev.
So, with the following command:
Code:
cat xpowerchute.trace | grep writev
I got this:
Code:
3144  writev(3, [{"l\0\v\0\0\0\22\0\20\0\0\0", 12}, {"MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1", 18}, {"\0\0", 2}, {"\\\316\21\221\350\357\372\220#U\373\252\331V\25\266", 16}], 4) = 48
3144  writev(3, [{"b\0\5\0\t\0\0\5", 8}, {"XKEYBOARD", 9}, {"\0\0\0", 3}], 3) = 20
3144  writev(3, [{"b\0\4\0\5\0\0\0", 8}, {"SHAPE", 5}, {"\0\0\0", 3}], 3) = 16

3144  writev(3, [{"1\30\v\0d\0!\0", 8}, {"-*-system-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*", 33}, {"\0\0\0", 3}], 3) = 44
I don't know what XFree86-Bigfont is. I just installed a collection of fixed fonts, lucida sans typewriter, and terminal font by copying them to /usr/share/fonts/, each font in its newly created folder, and then typing a command mkfontdir in each folder (where file fonts.dir with a list of fonts was created by that command). I don't know though if this is enough... At least now these fonts appear in the list of available fonts to gnome-terminal.

And finally, the result is the same... The same error. No changes.
Please tell me if I'm doing something wrong or perhaps I've missed something. If you need the whole file xpowerchute.trace, I'll try to upload it somewhere (this site doesn't allow me to post it - it's too large).

We're probably looking for a failed 'open' call .. might have "file not found" equivalent
