EasyTAG scm Bug Feedback
« on: March 09, 2012, 10:31:33 AM »
TC4.3.1, Xvesa, Screen resolution 1024x768, scm works OK

Same setup with screen resolution at 800x600, scm fails. e.g.
The find files process never completes just stalls.
Opening and closing a window leaves the area previously occupied by the window blank
The app quickly grinds to a halt.

EasyTAG has been used for quite a while in TC3.3 at 800x600 without a hitch.

This is unlikely to be a hardware issue as the symptoms are reproduced on machines from different manufacturers.

On TC 4.3. Xvesa 800x600x24, I cannot reproduce what you have observed, windows work and the find function works.

Also tried with 800x600x16, and all was still well as far as I could tell.

Maybe more specific issues are at play, which I would be glad to help test.  Maybe the  command line output info may help point it out.

No reports are obtained when starting from a terminal.

To eliminate hardware as a cause, the following were conducted on a machine on which EasyTAG has been running without a problem in TC3.3

Off topic note:
The list of packages to obtain a working TC is incomplete on http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/welcome.html


Screen resolution=800x600
Onboot scm=easyTAG
Onboot tcz=
Code: [Select]
Xlibs.tcz
Xprogs.tcz
Xvesa.tcz
fltk-1.10.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz
kmaps.tcz
Result:
  • None of the previous problems were present
  • The easyTAG window was too large to be fully displayed on the screen and could not be resized to fit.
 


Screen resolution=800x600
Onboot scm=easyTAG
Onboot tcz=
Code: [Select]
Xlibs.tcz
Xprogs.tcz
Xvesa.tcz
fltk-1.10.tcz
jwm.tcz
kmaps.tcz
Results:
  • The previous problems were present
  • The easyTAG window was too large to be fully displayed on the screen and could not be resized to fit.


Switched the screen resolution to 1024x768 
Preferences-->Browser
Untick=all except Show subdirectories when selecting a directory
Preferences-->Misc
Untick=Show log view in main window
These allowed the easyTAG window to be fully displayed


Switched the screen resolution to 800x600
Results:
  • The previous problems were no longer present


Booted on machine with different hardware
Results:
  • Identical to those observed immediately above


Booted machine to TC3.3 (Xvesa 800x600 JWM) and started easyTAG to compare against TC4.3.1.
Observed:
  • It is not neccessary to specify the above preferences to obtain expected operation
  • EasyTAG display fits better on screen irrespective of the preference settings


Tentative conclusion:
At some point between TC3.3 and TC4.3.1 a change has ocurred in the software that handles the video/display and has introduced the detrimental effects.
