Description of problem:
As a matter of fact, I am not sure if this bug is due to a bug in
xorg, X or KDE. But anyway ...
When choosing KDE as the login session, the KDE screen appears and the
process starts. At around 40%, my laptop shut itself down and stop
responding. A hard reboot is the only way out.
Since the suspend LED blinks, I presume it is an erroneous attempt to
go to suspend.
Indeed with acpi=off in the kernel command line parameters, the
With GNOME i had no problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add acpi=on on kernel parameters
2. login a KDE session
Actual Results: blank screen
Expected Results: KDE
HW: HP compaq nx 9000
This sounds like a kernel/ACPI problem.
still a problem with the latest updates ?
no problem with FC3
