Bug#771053: unblock: openni/

Severity: normal
User: <at>
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package openni

The version in unstable fixes a serious bug in the config file handling:
* Do not ship but generate {licenses,modules}.xml at install time
* (Closes: #767653)

The xml files are modified from plugin packages as well, which is a
policy violation. The new version generated the files in the postinst

Thanks for consideration!

Cheers Jochen

Bug#771052: fish: FTBFS on hurd-i386

Source: fish
Version: 2.1.0-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch
User: debian-hurd <at>
Usertags: hurd


Currently fish FTBFS on GNU/Hurd due to usage of sys_nerr and
sys_errlist, for error strings, which is not defined on Hurd and
depreciated (but still defined on other architectures): e.g.
/* sys_errlist and sys_nerr are deprecated.  Use strerror instead.  */

The attached patch solves this by using strerror().

Bug#771051: shows misleading error about password

Package: evince-gtk
Version: 3.14.1-1
Severity: important

When evince fails to decrypt a PDF, it asks the user to try another
password, even for unsupported encryption protocols

It should show a different message when the protocol is not supported
and maybe give the exact protocol details required so the user can
upgrade to a version that will work with their PDF.

Bug#771050: can't read many encrypted PDFs, misleading error about password

Package: poppler
Version: 0.26.5-2
Severity: important

Banks and other organizations are finally starting to send email
statements instead of asking people to log in to web sites and download
them.  E.g. Barclaycard now offers to send statements as email
attachment, using PDF encryption.

Unfortunately, most of the PDF readers in Debian don't work with these PDFs

Even worse, they display messages stating that the password is invalid
rather than explaining that they don't support the encryption method.

On a jessie system:

$ pdfinfo -upw $PASS statement.pdf
Syntax Error: Invalid encryption key length
Command Line Error: Incorrect password

The feedback in the evince and okular GUIs also claims the password was

On a wheezy system, evince, xpdf and okular all fail too, slightly
different console output:

$ evince statement.pdf
Error: Weird encryption info
Error: Incorrect password

Bug#771049: git-review: Please add a manpage for git-review command

Severity: normal


The git-review command is missing a manpage, could be handy if the
package was providing one.

Bug#771048: check_http doesn't support TLSv1.2 in Wheezy

Package: nagios-plugins-basic
Version: 1.4.16-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: upstream

Dear all,

The shipped check_http plugin cannot handle TLSv1.2 only servers and returns an error on Wheezy:
"HTTP CRITICAL - Error on receive"

This appears to be fixed in sid, where it properly returns:
"HTTP OK: HTTP/1.1 200 OK - 365 bytes in 0.115 second response time |time=0.114707s;;;0.000000 size=365B;;;0"

May the support be backported to Wheezy?

Bug#771047: imagemagick: loads square SVG with a non-square aspect ratio

Package: imagemagick
Version: 8:
Severity: normal

If I create this trivial SVG (from ikiwiki's regression tests)

    <svg width="30" height="30"/>

then imagemagick has very strange ideas about its size:

% identify square.svg
square.svg=>/tmp/magick-19348iyfzJCMX4oRz PNG 612x792 612x792+0+0 16-bit sRGB 6.1KB 0.010u 0:00.000
% convert square.svg square.png
% file square.png
square.png: PNG image data, 612 x 792, 8-bit gray+alpha, non-interlaced

That's 20.4 pixels per user coordinate horizontally but 26.4 pixels
per user coordinate vertically, which seems ... odd. It's OK that the
pixels per user coordinate ratio is arbitrary, but I think it's a bug
that the two dimensions get different ratios.

If I set a size in "preserve aspect ratio" mode, the image is scaled

% convert -resize 10x10 square.svg square.png
square.png: PNG image data, 8 x 10, 1-bit grayscale, non-interlaced
% convert -resize 10x square.svg square.png
% file square.png
square.png: PNG image data, 10 x 13, 1-bit grayscale, non-interlaced
% convert -resize x10 square.svg square.png

Bug#771045: linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64: System randomly freezes using Kernel 3.16 and radeon

Package: src:linux
Version: 3.16.7-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

with all my computers with radeon cards the system freezes randomy. I can't
reproduce freezing. It happens more often with kernel 3.16 and less often with
3.14. Some others report this issue too:

Sometimes the system responds via ssh, sometimes everything is locked.

Bug#771044: konsole: Konsole and Yakuake hang after selecting text and right click (dbus)

Package: konsole
Version: 4:4.14.2-1
Severity: normal


Konsole and Yakuake hang when selecting text in the terminal window and then right-clicking (or shift
right-click for curses). The menu is never drawn. The hang-up doesn't always happen, but has manifested
itself for many months so it's not a new bug.

I used gdb to check what is happening and both Konsole and Yakuake seem to hang on dbus via search engine
functionality in the context menu (backtrace follows).

There are several related bug reports for different distributions, for instance this one from the KDE bugtracker:

I'm not sure how to track the exact reason dbus hangs.

Thanks for your time,
