Description Stefan Brauer 2008-06-19 11:26:58 UTC
On a CentOs 5 server, when I make the following request -
# system-config-securitylevel
Error: Cairo does not yet support the requested image format:
        Depth: 8
        Alpha mask: 0x00000000
        Red   mask: 0x00000000
        Green mask: 0x00000000
        Blue  mask: 0x00000000
python2: cairo-image-surface.c:155: _cairo_format_from_pixman_format: Assertion `NOT_REACHED' failed.

an xwindow pops up momentarily, then disappears.

Thanks for your help,

The wording of that error message, (the fact that it doesn't contain a
specific version number of cairo), suggests that this is coming from
cairo 1.2.4 or so, not cairo 1.6.5.

Meanwhile, any version of cairo 1.6.4 or newer should have this bug fixed.
Please use one of those instead.
