Description Will Woods 2007-11-01 18:11:29 EDT
Booting a freshly-installed F8 (rc3) system, X comes up on the stippled screen, then seems to crash, then starts again, then hangs there. Rebooting the system will allow it to start normally on the next boot. < notting> f13: so, stipple of doom is: < notting> - rhgb fails < notting> - firstboot tries to start its own x server < notting> - something goes wonky where firstboot exits, but x server keeps running on *vt6* < notting> - mingetty starts on *vt6* < notting> - x server is now fubar I think this also affects the Live images, although slightly differently. rhgb never manages to start, but since there's no firstboot we end up in GDM. Which works fine, somehow.

"Fixed" with a rhpxl tweak so that we don't hit an exception in the Xserver startup path and things then go fine. This is related to the rhgb funnies, though. Leaving open for that (as they still cause other problems)
Comment 2 Will Woods 2007-11-02 01:09:25 EDT
We're building new (rc4) images that will contain this fix.
Comment 3 Will Woods 2007-11-02 13:08:07 EDT
With the rhpxl tweak and rhgb reverted to rhgb-0.17.7-3.fc8, rhgb is confirmed to be working OK in RC4 images. Yay! That makes this not-a-blocker. Leaving the bug open since, as Jeremy said, we're still not sure what was causing rhgb-8.0.2-1.fc8 to fail in the first place.

rhgb8 never shipped, dutifully ignoring this bug.
