Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
using Exceed 9 Xserver on Win2k to kernel 1831SMP_FC4. initial display on Win2k
box is very slow to complete. session logout process hangs, no response after
waiting 5 minutes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Win2K up and running. FC4 up and running. start XDMCP broadcast from Win2K
2. Win2K menu is displayed, choose FC4 machine, FC4 login is displayed, login,
Gnome desktop is displayed on Win2k box after 3 - 4 minutes (should be less than
3. click on logout icon in top menu bar
System appears to hang -- there is network activity between the Win2k and FC4
box, but the open X-window for the Exceed FC4 session does not change and no
logout option menu is displayed, after waiting for more than 5 minutes. both
boxes are on the same sub-net, and maximum line length is less than 50 feet.
click on Logout icon, display dims slightly and a logout option menu is displayed.
XDMCP was working normally between the Win2k box and FC4 box several kernel
versions ago. i don't normally use XDMCP, and have not checked this
funcitionality in a while.
