Description of problem:
I do not have any idea on how to determine what the cause of the
lockup is, but the latest round of updates has been causing my Dell
Inspiron 2500 to lockup.  

The computer makes it to the graphical login screen, but then locks up
there.  The recent package kernel-2.6.5-1.315 appears to be the cause,
because if I boot under the kernel-2.6.3- package, it does
not lockup.

latest kernel
3. Reboot

Actual Results:  The computer locks up at the graphical login

Comment 1 Brandon Petersen 2004-04-10 13:21:50 UTC
The kernel-2.6.5-1.315 package works fine if I pass selinux=permissive
in the boot settings.  It appears to actually be an SELinux issue.

I'm not sure that's the case, as I've experienced the same problem. Assuming the recent 
updates didn't clobber my SELinux settings, my machine is set to permissive as well.


Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-10 22:43:03 UTC
Do you get any AVC messages in the log file?


Comment 4 Brandon Petersen 2004-04-12 15:44:22 UTC
I am extremely sorry, I had to remove everything on the laptop and get
it to someone that needed it immediately.  I was not able to recover
any avc messages in the log file.

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-12 17:44:51 UTC
I believe this is a labeling problem.  Closing it because we can not
get any other data.
