Description of problem:
After logout from KDE the system hangs and no keypresses or mouse
actions produce any results. I dont appear to be able to telnet into
the system either (I have enabled telnet sessions).

I need to use a hard reset to recover from this, therefore putting
system integrity at risk.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to KDE
2. logout from Action menu
3. System freezes - black screen

Actual Results:   Black Screen

Expected Results:  New login screen

Comment 1 Ngo Than 2004-12-14 14:09:00 UTC
it looks like a bug in Xserver or kernel, which causes the problem.
for debugging i need followings infos:

- the name of Graphic card
- the kernel version
- the xorg-x11 version
- /etc/X11/xorg.conf
- /var/log/messages

could you please try to login in gnome. Does it happen after logout
from GNOME?

Comment 2 Dave Miles 2004-12-22 09:03:21 UTC
I dont have access to the system now until after Christmas (Jan 4th)
so please don't just close this issue because you have not heard from
me in theat time. However I can give you some more info. The problem
occurs on at least two platforms, both similar. One is a Dell GX240
with Intel 845  graphic chipset, the second a Dell GX260 with similar
(a little more recent I suspect) chipset, both are completely standard
as shipped Dell systems, with current BIOS revisions.

The kernel/xorg are as shipped with Fedora core 3, without updates.
The problem also used to manifest itself on both platforms on Fedora
core 2. 

As I dont have access to the systems getting you copies of any files
is not possible until Jan 4th. I will be in touch later.

Comment 3 Petr Rockai 2005-10-03 14:08:36 UTC
Any updates? Can you please check if the problem persists with fedora core 4?  
Also, i agree with than that this is probably not a kde bug, but some other 
component of the system (if the system dies completely, kernel or xorg (which 
has direct hardware access) is usually to blame). 

Comment 4 John Thacker 2006-04-30 13:59:53 UTC
No response from reporter to request for info.
FC3 is now the responsibility of Fedora Legacy, and this
does not seem to be a security issue.

If the problem still occurs in FC4 or FC5, please reopen
and update with new information.
