Fatal IO error

I’m having problems with SDL 1.0.1, when I try to run the examples
in sdl/test I get the error:
XIO: fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

That only occur in 1.0.1, 0.9 works fine.
Do it has something to do with pthreads?

PS: my system is slack 4.0

Wierd. I run with Slackware 7 and it it works fine. What’s your version of
X, and what are your other miscellaneous settings in XF86Config? (It sounds
like the problem is more there than with your linux version)

Try upgrading your system. I believe there are multi-threading
problems with older (libc5?) versions of X11.

Hi.

I’m having problems with SDL 1.0.1, when I try to run the examples
in sdl/test I get the error:
XIO: fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

Strangly enough, I seem to have this problem too once in a while (mainly
when SDL applications have been running for a couple of hours … ?)
I was suspecting my linux version (I had a harddisk crash 2 weeks ago
and only had redhat 6.1 on cdrom, so I installed that one, which is
glib2.1) I’ve never seen this specific X error before on any distro
except this one and indeed also only with SDL apps … it did already
happen with 1.0.0 tho (just installed 1.0.1) … wierd things is that
it’s an X protocol error which normally doesn’t happen that easy
when you’re running it on localhost:0 (on a network I guess it could
happen more easily) … wierd …

Cheers,
