Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 127466
hang after clicking ok 'Display settings changed' dialog
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:02 EST
Description of problem:
Testing U3 on an EM64T box, nVidia Quadro FX 330 unknown, using VESA.
Starting r-c-x from text mode after fresh install of U3/x86_64, dialog
comes up, appears completely operational. After pressing OK on main
dialog, "Display settings changed" dialog appears. Pressing OK on that
dialog freezes the system. Cannot do Ctrl-Alt-F1, Ctrl-Alt-Bksp,
Ctrl-Alt-Del -- sometimes keyboard lights will still toggle, sometimes
First time, I set 1280x1024, Millions of colors, Dell 1800FP
(digital), froze - I left it up for say 10 min, then rebooted. After
reboot, startx did work with those settings set properly.
I tried changing fewer settings, still hung. I tried just running it
and immediately pressing OK - same thing.
After rebooting and running startx, comes up, then Ctrl-Alt-Bksp gives
same behavior - so I'm assuming it's an X shutdown problem, not r-c-x.
Even if keyboard lights don't toggle, Ctrl-Alt-Del may work -- beeps
and then 20 sec later reboots (presumably delay from nicely shutting
Ctrl-Alt-F1 doesn't work from within X, hangs similarly.
Logout from Red Hat menu hangs similarly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time on this EM64T box at least.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X.
Shutdown X; return to console terminal.
Will try again with new 0707 build (this was 0705.2)
Will try installing nVidia driver, see what happens
This does NOT happen with the 0707 build. Was it a known bug or dup?
Nothing changed in X in this time, so if it is working for you now,
it must have been a kernel bug, or hardware or configuration issue.
Closing as "NOTABUG".
