Description JB Segal 2006-03-30 21:05:53 UTC
Description of problem: Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): FC5 (also FC4), xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9 (and all various FC4 versions.) gnome environment. How reproducible: Consistently. (Hardware is a Dell Optiplex 170L, if it matters, which it might.) Steps to Reproduce: 1. From X environment, hit Ctrl-Alt-F(1-6,8-10) 2. From text console, hit Alt-F7 3. Watch as X restarts, rather than resuming the session you were in the midst of already. Actual results: Current X session is destroyed. Expected results: Resumption of current session in as-left state. Additional info: As I say, this has been happening since I first installed FC4, 10 months ago or so. Is this X? Is this gnome? Is this something else? I don't know. Sorry.

In order to diagnose problems of this nature, we need additional information including: - The video hardware you are using. - Your X server log file and config file as individual uncompressed bugzilla file attachments of type text/plain - Your kernel log including initial bootup through the point of failure. (If this log is more than a half a meg, please gzip it) > As I say, this has been happening since I first installed FC4, 10 months ago or so. > Is this X? Is this gnome? Is this something else? I don't know. Sorry. In order to determine what specifically is causing the problem, more information is required. It could be a video driver bug, an X server bug, a kernel bug, a BIOS bug, a hardware glitch, or even things unrelated to video at all, such as a buggy sound driver or other hardware driver causing a conflict of some sort with a race condition. Once you've provided the additional information requested, we can review it and try to determine if anything obvious jumps out. Usually problems of this nature turn out to be video driver bugs or kernel bugs, or a combination, but all of the possibilities I've mentioned above have occured over time, so anything is ultimately possible. Thanks in advance.

Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, please, could you reproduce this bug with the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX/INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter. Thanks in advance.

This bug is open for a Fedora version that is no longer maintained and will not be fixed by Fedora. Therefore we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen thus bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
