Description Daniel Duggan 2006-11-03 04:01:46 EST
Description of problem:
When booting the machine the graphical login screen only appears on a random basis.
Sometimes it comes up, sometimes it does not and I am left at the text login screen.
Ctrl ALT Backspace will bring up the graphical login each time this occurs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
arch i686
How reproducible:
I appears to be random, i.e. it does not happen 100% of the time
I can only estimate that it occurs > 75%
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the Machine FC6 i686
Actual results:
Text login screen appears > 75% of the time

Expected results:
Graphical login screen should appear each and every time

Additional info:
Have tested this with themed and non themed logins and there appears to be
difference in the behaviour.

if you upgrade to the rhgb in updates-testing (0.16.4-3.fc6, scheduled to be
moved to updates later today) does the problem go away?
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-11-03 11:24:16 EST

Bug 214799 seems a duplicate of this one.

I've seen this bug installing Fedora on the machine of a friend recently.
So, it's solved in updates-released? Shouldn't this bug be RESOLVED?
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-11-30 10:43:31 EST
Yes, thanks.
