Description Robert Brimhall 2003-11-12 11:10:46 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Gecko/20031030 Epiphany/1.0.4

Description of problem:
if using rhgb, nvidia driver, and acpi after the rhgb and during the
GNOMEsplash screen the entire system becomes unresponsive and must be
shutdownuncleanly.  This does not happen with the standard driver and
acpi. It does nothappen with the nvidia driver without acpi. Only with
the three together. Noerrors are produced from what I can tell or if
you can tell me where to look.This is the only error I see in the
XFree86 logs:(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such device)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Append acpi=on to /boot/grub/grub.conf and rhgb
2.Use nvidia driver
3.reboot, login, and watch the system lock up and be totally unresponsive

Actual Results:  The system froze requiring an unclean shutdown

Expected Results:  Log in to GNOME as normal

Well, AMD761 chipset, GeForceFX5200, acpi=on, vga=792 (frame 
buffer), rhgb, KDE. All works properly.  
Comment 2 Robert Brimhall 2003-12-02 09:56:11 EST
It works fine unless the pcmcia card is plugged in during boot... you
can plug the card in after boot and evrything is fine... 
Comment 3 Len Brown 2004-03-24 03:29:24 EST
So this hang at splash screen requires 4 things
1. nvidia driver -- not standard driver
2. rhgb enabled
3. acpi=on
4. pcmcia card plugged in during boot

and if any of these ingredients are not there then no hang?
Does it still happen with a recent kernel?
Can you attach the dmesg?

No news on this for more than 8 months and 2 fedora core releases,
I think we can safely close this bug now.
