xpra server dies overnight — at Initial Version

Reported by: Doug Doole Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: critical Milestone: 0.3
Component: server Version: 0.2.0
Keywords: Cc:


I've been running xpra 0.2.0 on Ubuntu (11.10 for the server, 11.04 for the client) for the last two days. My client disconnects overnight and on both days, when I attempt to connect the next morning, the client does not attach.

doole@andammo:~$ xpra attach ssh:reorx:1
Connection failed: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
connection lost: empty marker in read queue
Connection lost

I took a look at .xpra/reorx-1.log, but I don't see anything obvious. I have attached both reorx-1.log and reorx-1.log.old.

On the server, I can see the xpra process running:

doole@reorx:~$ ps -ef | grep xpra
doole 915 1 52 Apr26 ? 11:05:18 /usr/bin/python /opt/xpra/bin/xpra start :1

but I am unable to stop it:

doole@reorx:~$ xpra stop :1
Connection failed: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
doole@reorx:~$ xpra stop

xpra start DISPLAY
xpra attach [DISPLAY]
xpra detach [DISPLAY]
xpra screenshot filename [DISPLAY]
xpra version [DISPLAY]
xpra stop [DISPLAY]
xpra list
xpra upgrade DISPLAY

xpra: error: cannot find a live server to connect to

So I manually kill the xpra session (kill 915 - process is gone) and restart xpra. When I reconnect from the client, all my windows are still present (so killing xpra didn't wipe out the window manager for some reason) although the windows have all moved to +0+0 on the screen.

In case it matters, my line to start xpra is:

/usr/bin/xpra start :1

I was previously using and did not see this behaviour.

I suspect that you'll need more diagnostics - just let me know what to gather.
