Also, SELinux is disabled.

I have a Compaq 2190US laptop that shows the same issue, However, it
also locks up if I try to change to a virtual console using ctrl-alt-f2.

Also if I try to reboot from inside an Xterm, it still locks up when
the Xserver is killed.

This leads me to believe it isn't gdm, but the X server.  I don't
see anything interesting in the X log.  I also have the ATI Rage128
if I remember correctly (I am posting this from my desktop so all of
this is from memory).  I am running from an original install of FC2T1
that I have upgraded to present.  

I am thinking of re-installing FC2T3 from a dvd iso that I downloaded
to see if that will help

Moving to Xorg.
Comment 4 Mike Hall 2004-05-13 01:59:09 EDT
I also have this problem with a ibm thinkpad R50p. Swtiching to virt
consoles or exiting X causes a hard lock. Caplock key does not change
the led, no response to pings, etc.

I installed from DVD for FC2test3. I have verified the media with the
media check option.

xorg id's the card as ATI Technologies Inc unknown chipset (0x4e54)
rev 128. 

If you need additional information let me know.

BTW I forgot to mention. I can get this to lock with very minimal
interaction with other apps. No gpm etc. Just running "X" from the
command line. It always locks hard. Very reproducable.

Same problem: Crash when loggin out, and when trying to switch to
terminal with CTRL-ALT-Fn, and need to hard reboot. I also locks when
starting in runlevel 5. 
Happens every time.
I have a FC2-test3 running on a Asus A7V266-MX, on board S3 UniChrome
Video Card. (VIA Unichrome 2D/3D)

Comment 7 Mike Hall 2004-05-18 18:20:14 EDT
Just tested this with FC2 final release installed from the DVD. I no
longer see the issue. Everything works as I would expect. I can change
to VC's and back; I can exit the X server and the machine will not
lock up. As far as I am concerned this issue is resolved.
