Description jigar 2015-10-09 09:52:54 UTC
Description of problem: X session doesn't start on boot ( even if graphical.target is set in the grub ) and needs to be explicitly started using an alternate console. Multi monitor setup, CPU firmware up-to-date , selinux turned off.

Following is the backtrace of the crash:

Actual results: X doesn't start and needs to be started using "$ startx"

Expected results: X should start after boot if graphical.target is set
