Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 117921
xscreensaver kills xsession
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem:
Just upgraded to the newest packages to hit the development release
20040309. With gnome and xscreensaver, whenever xscreensaver starts
due to inactivity, my gnome session is killed sending me to the log in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to current development packages
2. log in as user
3. Let screensaver activate due to inactivity
automatic log off.
Should bring up the screensaver not kick me out
I found that this problem is directly related to GLX not loading on
xstart Any application that requries GLX will cause the user to be
logged out and x will reset.
This bug only started to occur after updated to the latest development
I'd like to ask a few questions which will be helpful in determining
the cause of the problem.
- What OS release were you using prior to updating?
- What version-release of XFree86 were you using prior to updating?
- Are you using a Red Hat supplied kernel, or a custom built one?
Also, can you please attach the following files as uncompressed
- X server log
- X server config file
The output of "lspci -vvn" and "lsmod" from while X is running
would also be useful.
Thanks in advance.
For some reason rebuilding the drivers fixed the problem. I forgot to
exclude kernel updates through yum and the glx module never got
rebuilt to the new kernel source. My bad, I should've thought of this
before posting. I owe you a beer.
