Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135608
gdm hardlocks machine after logging in with no default session set
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:51 EST
Description of problem:
When logging in through GDM without choosing a session, XDM comes up,
and then a gdm message stating that your session lasted less than 10
At that point, it attempts (I think, to log back out), but merely
blanks the screen and hard-locks the machine, no video, no network,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose not to install Gnome
2. Choose not to install xdm (under X-Window System)
3. Choose to install KDE
4. Log in through GDM without selecting a default session
"Your session lasted less than 10 seconds"
Hard system lock
Normal Login to KDE as default (since gnome was not selected
What video driver?
r128 with console fb running (vga=792)
This sounds like it may be a video card driver issue. I'm going to reassign to
the X team.
