Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125957
Shutdown at HP Omnibook 6100 crashes xorg-x11 server
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem / Steps to Reproduce:
This morning, I did a "poweroff" as root at a console, but it didn't
turn off my computer (only a black screen instead the turnoff), so I
turned it off manually with the power button. This afternoon, I
wanted to start FC2 again, but RHGB didn't start and the X server
tries to startup, but crashs, tries to startup again, crashs again
and so on.
The boot parameter contains "rhgb" and rhgb as well as the X server
worked with 2.6.5-1.358 and 2.6.6-1.427 before that shutdown using
"poweroff". Notice, that it was the first shutdown with 2.6.6-1.427,
I only did reboots with 2.6.6-1.427 before! Neither the old nor the
new kernel changes anything, currently.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Well, my X server simply doesn't startup, it tries to start, breaks
down, tries to start and so on... :-(
Working X server ;-)
Maybe you can find the problem out of my syslog file?
Hmm...I remember, that I reproduced the same or something similar
with the same behavior (some time ago): I turned of my computer (not
at a HP notebook) as it was running the X server. After turning on,
the X server had this startup-crash cycle, too. Maybe that helps you?

My syslog; maybe it helps to find the problem...

Your font server is not running, or is misconfigured. This is not
a bug, but a local system misconfiguration.
