Description Daniel Kunkel 2004-11-20 21:48:00 UTC
Description of problem: Working along, then system crashes right back
to a login screen. I think I've been transferring files from more than
Windows machine to virtual HD at the time...  but don't know if that
is related.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): FC3

How reproducible: Random - I hate random bugs.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use FC3 updated to 11/18/04 on K7 1Gig and wait.
Actual results:
Login Screen - Relogin...  No idea what happened.

Expected results:
Continued functioning...  Not lose all data. Some error message.

Additional info:
What log(s) file should I consult to see if any record is made of the
problem?  I thought it might be a power problem, but don't think so,
as it goes to login screen, not a system reboot.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2004-11-21 03:37:35 UTC
sounds more like a gnome problem than a kernel bug.

Comment 2 Daniel Kunkel 2004-11-21 20:57:25 UTC
Happened again: Found this is in the system log...

Does this help?

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-11-27 23:27:49 UTC
Are you using SELINUX enforcement targeted or strict?

Comment 4 James Collins 2005-01-14 20:20:11 UTC
I don't know if I'm running targeted or strict. How do I tell? But I 
do know that SELinux is currently "Enforcing". Currently a FC3 
virtually out of the box, with everything installed. All patches 
including Kernel are up to date. This morning, I awoke to find this 
error in the logs, and my SSH session terminated (I'd left it idle 
the night before and forgotten about it).

user jamesc

user_u:object_r:devpts_t, not relabeling.

Jan 15 03:56:20 gatehouse su(pam_unix)[5252]: session closed for user 

My session was just sitting at the command prompt, and I can discern 
no particular thing that was going on at the time. It appears to be a 
totally random event??

Kernel is -:
