System: NetBSD gussie.hclsmith 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (GENERIC) #3: Sat Aug 18 23:37:05 CEST 2001 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
(read this all through before flaming me - i know it *looks* like
it should be a KDE bug report but i think it may be platform-related...
and KDE have `closed the book' on v2 bugs.)
since 2.2.0 (i think) thumbnails/previews haven't worked on my KDE.
since i'd been installing from my own pkgs i wrote it off as either
a quirk of my box (in which case there was little point pestering
anyone else about it) or a real bug (in which case someone else
would report it, presumably, surely...)
but i was slow building the 2.2.2 release and the `official' pkgsrc
was released ... and what i've built from that *still* has
broken thumbnails (the image looks right, but the colourmap
is all wrong).
and I'm not seeing thumbnails left over from before; i erased them
all. and it's not the part of konqueror/etc that displays thumbnails;
i discovered i can generate my own and konqueror displays them perfectly
if i put them in the right place (~/.kde/share/thumbnails/something).
thus i think the thumbnail generator is broken. the PNGs it leaves
in the thumbnail directories all seem to be truncated to 33 bytes.
I checked the KDE bug database but the only good match i found
seems to be about Solaris shared memory problems (bug 27517)
Could someone puleeze let me know if it's just me?? is NetBSD's
sharted memory f*ing it like Solaris', or is my box braindamaged,
or just what ...
i know this is isn't a good place to send this but it's driving
me nuts, i suspect it's limited to netbsd, ... the `official'
pkgsrc preserves the fault on me, &c &c
