Bytecode Interpreter Disabled in Xfce


Description milkycow 2005-11-22 11:37:15 CET
After upgrade to Xfce from 4.2.2 through the source installer, freetype bytecode interpreter is 
disabled when using Xfce. Returns to using bytecode interpreter after reverting to 4.2.2.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Slackware 10.2
Freetype 2.1.10 recompiled with bytecode interpreter support
GTK+ 2.6.10
previously using Xfce 4.2.2 that ships with Slackware 10.2

Sorry that doesn not make any sense. The so called bytecode interpreter is in
the freetype library, xfce doesn't provide nor recompile the freetype library,
it just uses it.

The only logical explanation is that by compiling from source, you simply picked
up another lib installed in parallel on your system.

But in any case, I don't see how this could be related to Xfce
Comment 4 Jasper Huijsmans editbugs 2005-12-21 09:43:30 CET
Sorry, but there is no way Xfce can do anything about using or not using the
bytecode interpreter in freetype.

Moving invalid bugs to the /dev/null product.
