raise XDRError

Asked by odie on 2008-04-12

When I saw Gdesklets on a friend's computer, I was totally amazed. So I started Synaptic on my Ubuntu7.10-64bit-machine and installed gdesklets with its dependencies (in my case only gdesklets-data). When running it normally over Acessories->Gdesklets, a window popped up and was gone soon. Starting from a terminal said that he could not contact the deamon.
Well, then I compiled it myself (of cource I uninstalled the Synaptic version first). No error during compiling....
When I start the programm now, the following is printed in the Terminal (yes, it is the german version : /):

odie@KellerBox:~/Desktop/gdesklets-0.36$ gdesklets
gdesklets-daemon wird gestartet …
In 305 Millisekunden mit dem Daemon verbunden.

[---] 79 flag = s.recv(1)
[---] 80 if (flag == _CONT): continue

Is it because of the 64 bits? My friend has 32 and the desklets are running qiute well...

Thanks for answers,
odie

maybe that problem!

It's most likely not your 64-bit machine.

Can you help with this problem?
