Description Alan Cox 2000-04-25 19:32:39 UTC
Install Linux. Remove video card insert one that needs
a different server. Reboot. Kuzdu spots the card change.
Accept the change, fail to find the CD. Hit cancel.

Linux now boots to gdm which continually starts the old
X server flicking the screen in an unstoppable way or
requiring single user access and clues to fix. Not one
a novice can recover from.

Kudzu should kill the old X server link before it tries
to do anything fancy. Likewise if the config dialog times

Comment 1 Alan Cox 2000-08-05 01:20:10 UTC
Is this one fixed in 7.0beta - should I go and test it ?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-07 19:38:37 UTC
Should be fixed in 0.97.5-1; if the X configuration fails
(Xconfigurator exits non-zero), the initscript will switch to
runlevel 3.
