Description Chia-Ling Lee 2006-03-25 22:17:50 EST
Description of problem:

FC5, the one that is just released

How reproducible:

Installed twice and the result is the same. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from CDs, add reiserfstools. Everything seems to go fine. Reboot. 
2. On the laptop, there is a reiser file system installed with Ubuntu. Boot
fails somewhere doing FSCK. 
3. Insert 1st CD, "Linux Rescue", hmm ... I don't use LVM, and fstab has a
Label=/. Change that to /dev/hda2. Edit grub.conf and take out quiet and rhgb. 
4. System boots, but X appears to fail. 
5. But wait, gdm starts fine. 
6. Can login, but only as root. I don't want to do that!
7. Repeat step 1. Same result. Why is it that on FC5test1 I have less problems? 
8. Send in this report. 
Actual results:

System did not go into first boot. 

Expected results:

System goes into first boot without problems and allow me to set up user account
that works with my Kerberos server and LDAP server. 

Additional info:

dmesg of ubuntu is below.

Looks like an X server problem based on the attached X log.
Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2006-08-02 16:43:58 EDT
Unfortunately that log is not even close to sufficient.  Can you attach the X
log from /tmp/ramfs ?
Comment 8 Chia-Ling Lee 2006-12-15 17:30:05 EST
Sorry, I have lost the installation. It is so long ago. Perhaps this can be
closed. FC6 seems to have resovled it completely, though there is still a
libnss-ldap bug. See my other post.

Insufficient data to continue to investigate.  Oh well.  Thanks for the report!
