Description Robin Green 2002-06-07 23:27:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020605 Description of problem: I tried upgrading to glibc 2.2.90-10, and when I rebooted, starting a KDE session by typing "startx" caused the X server to hang after displaying the expected blue background (no "starting KDE" splash screen appeared). The mouse pointer was frozen. CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to quit the X server, and CTRL+ALT+F1 to switch to a VT, both had no effect. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): XFree86-4.2.0-8 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install glibc 2.2.90-10 2. Make KDE the default 3. Run startx Actual Results: X hangs Expected Results: KDE should start up normally Additional info: Configuration: XFree86-4.2.0-8 kdebase-3.0.1-1 Linux 2.4.18 with preempt patch Downgrading back to glibc from RH7.3 fixed the problem.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-06-09 23:35:53 EDT
We do not support using rawhide glibc with RHL 7.3. Also, we do not support user compiled kernels with or without patches. Also, if you're testing rawhide, things are very likely to be broken at any given point in time, especially if mixing rawhide and 7.3. Can you reproduce this problem using a fully installed rawhide system with an official Red Hat kernel (or the rawhide kernel)?

Ugh preempt... you really do like living on the edge... Anyway if anything it looks like a glibc bug

2.2.90-12 may fix some of this for you; a problem with threads was fixed there.
