Description of problem:
RHGB was freezing when booting my PC.
I have found the problem.
During the boot sequence, I run a script which setups
my iptables rules.
First rule is to disable anything ; then I enable what I need.
And RHGB is stuck because all lo traffic is blocked during some
very limited time, but sufficient to drop at least one RHGB packet.
The workaround is to enable lo traffic before dropping anything.
Here my question : why does RHGB use loopback interface to
communicate to X server (localhost:0) and not internal UNIX
socket (:0) ??????
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. drop loopback packets
2. rhgb freezes
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
