Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212946
gdm not always started on boot - Acer TravelMate 4000 FLCi laptop
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem: On boot-up, gdm is not always started and quite
frequently I'm presented with a text-console login (aka init-3).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): FC6 default
desktop install updated as of 29th October 2006 with 1 additional package - the
"ipw2200" firmware from the livna repositories.
How reproducible: Approximately 50% of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power on the laptop and observe...
Actual results: Frequently presented with text-more login (after a seemingly
normal graphical boot-up)
Expected results: To see the "gdm" login screen.
Apart from this one niggling issue....
CONGRATULATIONS on another great release guys!
The AIGLX eye-candy is absolute magic to the eyes :)
You must have some pity for those sorry folks at Redmond. At this rate, what is
Mr. Gates going to do? Have a heart guys ;)
if you install the rhgb that's in updates-testing does the problem go away?
Updated the system as of yesterday and its fine now.
NetworkManager doesn't connect to the wireless consistently - sometimes even
though it detects the wireless network correctly, it fails to connect. I'll
check bugzilla for related issues and if none exists, will file one.
