Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133625
CTRL ALT Backspace not resetting X
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:50 EST
Description of problem:
I have my /home drive on a different disc to the drive I did the
initial install on. I have added the new drive into fstab. When I
login, I am given the default desktop, but it trying to load up
applets from my desktop and failing (gives applet errors). I am unable
to logout from that desktop. I have to use ctrl-alt-backspace.
If I just hit ctrl-alt-delete as soon as the default desktop loads, I
get a flashing cursor and X doesn't restart. If I go through the
"don't delete" options for the failed applets and hit ctrl-alt-delete
then, I get the flashing cursor. The only time c-a-d works is if I try
to logout via the redhat.
I am unable to restart X from a different terminal unless I'm in as su
and have to do a reboot.

Steps to Reproduce:

issue a reboot (though ctrl break f12 sometimes works, it's not
X should restart, though I shouldn't be getting the dual desktop
