Description Nuno Carvalho 2006-11-03 10:20:01 EST
Description of problem:
When logging of the machine in graphical mode ( End Current Session, Turn Off
Computer and Restart) it simply hangs the system, I have to press reboot button
or turn it off. I happens all the time and on boot time it has to recover from
journaling. My system is a PIV 3.0Ghz EM64, Asus P4P800 SE motherboard, 1 GB of
memory and ATI 9250 SE video. Tried with open source radeon driver and with ati
(closed source) driver has well with the same result. In /var/log/messages this
line appears after trying to logout:

Nov  2 12:07:43 hxa-w006 gdm[2749]: Master halting...


Nov  2 12:04:50 hxa-w006 gdm[2784]: Restarting computer...

This problem only occurs on X86_64 arch, in the i386 version there is no problem
 as I can logout properly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.fc6 (and all the other packages : driver, fonts,
utils, etc etc)
arch x86_64

How reproducible:
Happens every time I try to logout in the graphical mode with any option :
End Current Session
Turn Off Computer
Restart Computer

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the computer
2.Login graphical mode
3.Logout with any option
4.Hangs with black screen
Actual results:
Hangs with black screen

Expected results:
Logout properly.

Additional info:
Attched are the logs produced : dmesg, Xorg.0.log, xorg.conf, uname -a

I do not see the problem at home where I have a machine with a P4P800 DELUXE
mother board, but ...

I get the same problem on my laptop : its an ACER ASPIRE 1700.
I upgraded this machine from FC5 (with no problems) to FC6. Additionally
I corrected the the kernel (from i586->i686 (anaconda bug)).

what version of rhgb do you have installed?
Comment 5 J.Jansen 2006-11-09 03:32:02 EST
On my Acer Aspire 1700 (note that since this is a i686 machine the architecture
tag and the title of this bug should be changed) I'm running
 rhgb.i386                                0.16.4-3.fc6           installed       

On my machine (which does not show the problem) at home I'm running the rhgb
which comes with the FC6 DVD. However, if I remember correctly also before
upgrading rhgb, so just after installing FC6 from DVD, I experienced the problem
on the Acer machine.

I have no idea why you suspect rhgb, since the problem does not appear at
boot-time, but at closing of a further succesful user-session.

Nothing changed after all the updates I installed over the last months.

However, I noticed something which may be related (or not). When the machine is
unattended (i.e. during the night) running xscreensaver on top of the
gnome-session I experience "logouts" at random times. (I already played with the
Power-saver options with no results) But after such an "automatic" logout I just
can login and logout again in the gnome session without the "hang" described
above. Before the "automatic" logout this is still impossible.

We no longer support Fedora Core 6 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
