Description Etanisla Lopez-Ortiz 2004-11-16 04:37:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
root and user were able to start xorg normally before installing
Nvidia drivers.

Note boot runlevel is set to 3.

After install, root is able to start xorg normally. The user is not
able to start normally. When the user types "startx", the graphical
splash screen appears, along with the first icon for "Metacity window
manager". The graphical procedure doesn't progress any further.
Checking back at the console, I see:

*** glibc detected *** corrupted double-linked list: 0x08a9ebd0***
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common: line 45:  4690 Aborted       xmodmap

The fine folks on the Fedora List suggested that I submit a Bugzilla
report and point out that the bug seems to have been triggered by the
Nvidia drivers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-6.8.1-12 glibc-2.3.3-74 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take fresh install of FC3. Install Nvidia 1.0-6629 drivers.
2. Boot to console. Login as a user.
3. "startx"


Actual Results:  Unable to start xorg as user, xorg hung at graphical
splash screen. Ctrl-Alt-BkSpc to force xorg to close.

Expected Results:  Xorg should have started.

Additional info:

Key error message:
*** glibc detected *** corrupted double-linked list: 0x08a9ebd0***
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common: line 45:  4690 Aborted       xmodmap

Key display driver (for GeForce 4 card):
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1 (obtained from nvidia.com)

Bug may be triggered by Nvidia drivers.

My system is FC3, after I updated my system, the firefox can't run, 
gedit can show a interface but can't work. I ran firefox in bash, got 
this messages: 
*** glibc detected *** corrupted double-linked list: 0x0814d458 *** 
What's it mean? How do I to solve it?
