Description Umk 2005-02-15 02:18:21 UTC

Description of problem:
I'm having a problem running X when logged in as a regular user. I see
the "Fedora Core" screen but loading halts after "The Panel" icon
shows. I have included the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log below.

If I log in as root and run startx I don't have a problem.

*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: 0x09d9a8a8 ***
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common: line 45: 4413 Aborted xmodmap "$sysmodmap"

SESSION_MANAGER=local/localhost.localdomain:/tmp/.ICE-unix/4408

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.8.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start PC
2. Login as standard user
3. X startup freezes
    

Additional info:

This is the relevant section in my xinitrc-common:
if [ -z "$XKB_IN_USE" ]; then
  [ -r "$sysmodmap" ] && xmodmap "$sysmodmap"
  [ -r "$usermodmap" ] && xmodmap "$usermodmap"
fi

sysmodmap resolves to:
sysmodmap=/etc/X11/Xmodmap

Contents of Xmodmap:
! /etc/X11/Xmodmap
!
! global Xmodmap file -- used by both xdm and xinit (startx)

! keycode and keysym remapping should generally be used only if the X
! server config file has been configured to disable the XKEYBOARD
! extension

! i386 and alpha
! keycode 22 = BackSpace
! keycode 107 = Delete           

! powerpc
! keycode 59 = BackSpace
! keycode 125 = Delete

! sparc
! keycode 50 = BackSpace
! keycode 73 = Delete

! Euro sign support
! keycode 26 = e E currency
! keycode 54 = c C cent
! keycode 113 = Mode_switch Mode_switch Multi_key
