After upgrading GTK+ 4 on Hương Tràm, Megapixels now can occasionally start on Sxmo. Since the following patch seems to fix the crash, I suspect it is due to a race condition.

Edit: This was last night. The patch isn't working for me any more )-;
So is the GTK4 issue actually fixed? Do we know what the issue was? Right now we are doing nothing more than playing bug tracker ping pong between Megapixels and SXMO.
#51 was fixed, I don't have any insight though. Megapixels now can occasionally starts on my ALARM with Sxmo, but in most of the cases the window is not initialized (i.e. there's a frame with the content of the element underneath), which response to close event but
megapixelsdoes not die with it (I still need to
#51 was only closed because it is believed to be a bug in SXMO. Over at SXMO it was closed because they thought it had been solved elsewhere. So now we have a "resolved: not our bug" in both bug trackers and no actual solution. Someone with knowledge of GTK at their hands or a lot of time would need to have a look at what the actual issue is.
So now we have [...] no actual solution
There is: Megapixels is working on Sxmo on ALARM. Since this only started to happen after an GTK+ 4 upgrade, my bet would be on the GTK+ 4 version. On Arch Linux it is currently 4.2.1-1 while on Alpine Linux it is 4.2.0-r0.
I agree that for the race condition,
Someone with knowledge [...] at their hands or a lot of time would need to have a look at what the actual issue is.
Well, 4.2.1 sure helped in a sense. Now I get a different error on every startup. In one case Megapixels even showed the preview image only to crash on taking a photo with process_pipeline.c: process_image: 593 I'm struggling a bit with redirecting both stdout and stderr in ash, so I don't have proper logs yet.
One issue seems to be that Megapixels asks over DBUS for a DisplayConfig. org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner: Name "org.gnome.Mutter.DisplayConfig" From what I could gather that is provided by the Gnome Settings Daemon, which of course is not running on SXMO.
This is more likely a regular failure than the root cause of this issue.
Also interesting, on Phosh vs SXMO Megapixels initialises:
OpenGL ES 2.0
I have found further evidence that it is indeed a race condition. Megapixels starts up reliably for me through X-Forwarding.
- Enable X forwarding on the PinePhone.
- Connect using 'ssh -X -Y -C'.
- Uninstall megapixels-gtk3-0.16.1-r0 and install megapixels-1.0.1-r0 (in that order since the packages are not conflicting and would overwrite files).
- Start megapixels and see it work (with abysmal framerate, but still).

Probably unrelated but this error comes up regularly while running megapixels this way, but it doesn't have any obvious adverse effect.
