[squeak-dev] Getting Squeak3.10 to work under problem Linuxes

Hi Mariano,

Thanks for your interest.

Your complaint sounds like it would make a good mantis report.

Here are the FAQs,

FAQ: Is this a known issue ? Where is the place to report bugs (or check if 
some have already been raised) ?

The best place for this info would be to start a
Mantis report. (You can get a mantis acct freely and

A good place to start is:


Mantis provides a patient persistent way to focus on an issue.
I use it to accumulate data on a problem until a solution can be found.
It provides a place to alert the community to a problem; 
-accumulate facts and clues from the analysis;
-publish preposed solutions and get feedback;
-get solutions harvested and included into the main stream.

This FAQ is available at the Squeak wiki site.
Mantis FAQ and Tips

Also squeak is a small mostly volunteer community. 
If a problem bugs you enough to want it fixed
be prepared to be the one to track it down and fix it.

See if you can write a test that will fail until the problem is fixed.

See if you can write something that sets the screen to the appropriate size and res.
And makes the test pass.

Bug tracking is a good exercise for squeak learning

No harm starting with nonsense to get inspiration. :-)
