[Bf-committers] Need help with blender-2.49b bug

Hi, I maintain blender for openSUSE and I'm working on :-
http://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=615679 "application blender
shows inverse colors"
This was working in openSUSE 11.2 but some dependency has changed in
11.3 to cause it.
I've narrowed the problem down by replacing the blender binary after
build with the one in your package
"blender-2.49b-linux-glibc236-py26-x86_64 which eliminates everything
except for the build dependencies.
Could you please supply the package versions that your version of
blender was built against or at least a clue about which dependency to
look at.

Blender-2.50 svn 29636 doesn't have a problem but it doesn't display
menus at all unless ~/.blender is present for the user and is from 2.50
and not 2.49b which will cause a problem with update. I've worked around
this with an extra version file in /usr/share/blender/.blender and a
wrapper script that checks and copies .blender to the users $HOME if it
doesn't exist. To prevent problems this should be done from the program
itself. Rpms are unable to install into users directories due to always
running as root. This problem most probably exists in all linux distros.
Wrapper script :-
if test -e $HOME/.blender/v-2.50; then
/usr/bin/blender.bin "$@"
exit 0
cp -r /usr/share/blender/.blender $HOME/
/usr/bin/blender.bin "$@"
