Is anyone out there using the xpm-3.4j stuff on their NetBSD/alpha boxes (e.g.
in fvwm or fvwm2). If so, are the images/icons correct, or are they garbled?
I had the same problem. I tried to track the problem down in the xpm
source code despite my little knowledge on X-programming, and couldn't
find the problem. Later I got when compiling xpaint and trying to exec
it, the same failure as you described. I managed to get fvwm icons up
and running, by hacking the icons. There's only a problem with the
transparent icons. I just changed the background color of the icons
from transparant to the background color I use most in fvwm. This was
fine with me as a short-term solution, although a bit crippled.
In fvwm2, the many of the icons (like xterm.xpm and xv2.xpm) appear to be
garbled. (some of the <columns> of the icons appear to be correct, but the
rest are just "noise"). Other icons (like world.xpm) work just fine.
transparant vs. non-transparant
When these applications are run on the alpha, and displayed on a monochrome
Sun3 X display, they work/display just fine :-(
I'm not sure on this, but I think I tried compiling xpaint on
netbsd-i386 (1.2) and netbsd-alpha (>1.2), and that running them gave the same
problem on both.
I'm planning on looking further into this after the weekend, but in the
meantime I figured I'd ask if anyone else has seen this problem...
I'm running NetBSD-current as of March 5th or so (ELF, shared libs, vm fixes,
etc), with the "x11-fixes.tar.gz" X11 shared libraries. The alpha is a
Multia, for as much as that should matter.
I have a similar system and similar problems.
