Package: libxinerama1
Version: 1:1.0.2-1
Severity: important

according to XineramaIsActive(3):

    The  XineramaActive function returns a Boolean operator used to determine if Xin‐
    erama is activated on the screen. Returns True  for  active  and  False  for  not

(there's a typo, s/XineramaActive/XineramaIsActive/)


 XineramaQueryScreens() returns NULL and sets number to 0 if Xinerama is
 not active.

Actually on my sparc machine XineramaIsActive() returns True, while
XineramaQueryScreens sets the number of screens to 0 and returns a NULL

This bug makes gdm unusable, and probably other packages.

I've tried the following program on sparc and i386:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <X11/Xlib.h>
#include <X11/extensions/Xinerama.h>

int main() {
    Display *disp = XOpenDisplay(NULL);
    int n_screens;
    XineramaScreenInfo *xscreens = XineramaQueryScreens (disp,

    printf("XineramaIsActive: %d\n", XineramaIsActive(disp));
    printf("Number of screens: %d\n", n_screens);

    if(xscreens == NULL)
        printf("XineramaQueryScreens returned a NULL pointer\n");
        printf("XineramaQueryScreens returned something useful\n");


    return 0;

The program above prints the following on my sparc machine:

XineramaIsActive: 1
Number of screens: 0
XineramaQueryScreens returned a NULL pointer

Conversely, on i386 the bug is not reproducible:

XineramaIsActive: 1
Number of screens: 1
XineramaQueryScreens returned something useful
