Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200338
Gnome stops starting
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
Description of problem:
The Gnome splash screen appears with the "Window Manager" icon in the bottom
left corner, then stalls forever.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in.
Computer hangs. Only terminal works. Quitting with Ctrl-Alt-BS quits but the
same thing happens on next login and even after reboot.
Worked fine 5-6 times then stopped working. I didn't change any settings or
install any new software.
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
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.
