7.6. SDL

Updated SDL packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) is a cross-platform multimedia library designed to provide fast access to the graphics frame buffer and audio device.

Bug Fix

BZ#1125304
Due to the changes made to X Virtual Frame Buffer (Xvfb) in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6, the XGrabPointer() function started to return a value of 0 if used on an SDL window placed outside the Xvfb root window boundaries. Consequently, if an SDL program expected the original return value, a problem could occur. With this update, the SDL library conforms to the new behavior, and programs using this library now work as expected.
Users of SDL are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.

Bug Fix

BZ#1205603
An attempt to upgrade the SDL library without upgrading the libX11 library could result in applications emitting the following error:
symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libSDL-1.2.so.0: undefined symbol: _XGetRequest after updating SDL
This update modifies the SDL spec file to prevent an upgrade on systems with a too outdated libX11 version. As a result, the mentioned error no longer occurs.
Users of SDL are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
