Description James Morris 2007-12-16 03:59:09 EST
Description of problem: I upgraded to current rawhide, and discovered that gdm crashes. There are some SELinux AVCs, but the problem also emerges with selinux=0 This is on a macbook. Video h/w appears to be 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) 00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gdm-2.21.2-0.2007.11.20.6.fc9 See attached boot log.
Comment 3 James Morris 2007-12-16 04:16:31 EST
Ok, so haldaemon is failing to start with selinux=1. Should that cause gdm to crash? X is still crashing with selinux=0, see the log I just attached.
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-12-17 11:40:23 EST
reassigning to X. If X crashes there isn't much we can do for GDM. We should fix the "segfault if hal isn't around" issue, too, of course.

Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue. Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below. Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please. We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information. Thanks in advance.
Comment 6 James Morris 2007-12-19 08:26:00 EST
Created attachment 290015 [details] xorg.conf As requested.
Comment 7 James Morris 2007-12-19 08:29:20 EST
Created attachment 290016 [details] old log file -- the one which was generated during the crash, i think
Comment 8 James Morris 2007-12-19 08:30:44 EST
Created attachment 290017 [details] current x.org log -- i believe the X server has tried to restart, but no display & no keyboard/mouse response
Comment 9 James Morris 2007-12-19 08:46:37 EST
Created attachment 290020 [details] after reboot with no xorg.conf file Getting a similar outcome, e.g. switching to 'detailed' view during graphical boot shows corrupted text lines (possibly just the ones being displayed, rather than ones which were generated before display) & crash in response to action which display the corruption. Also happens if I wait until login then un-hide a task bar -- the text on the task bar is corrupt & then X crashes.
Comment 10 James Morris 2007-12-19 08:49:50 EST
Also, it's a bit different this time, in that keys I type are displayed in what looks like normal text mode, and it turns out also that I can switch to normal VTs with "alt-FN" (don't need ctrl-).
Comment 11 Adam Jackson 2008-02-12 14:37:38 EST
What version of -drv-i810 is this with?
Comment 12 James Morris 2008-02-12 15:05:09 EST
I've since reinstalled that machine (it was unusable) and will let you know if I go back to rawhide or similar and see it again.
Comment 13 Matěj Cepl 2008-02-12 17:37:39 EST
Setting NEEDINFO on this bug, so we won't forget we are expecting information from the reporter.
Comment 14 Matěj Cepl 2008-04-10 06:06:35 EDT
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Comment 15 Matěj Cepl 2008-04-14 06:59:02 EDT
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the reporter's distribution. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information. Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
