Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216567
Graphical display managers does not start after firstboot
Last modified: 2012-03-09 17:27:08 EST
Description of problem:
X not configured properly after installation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 4.92 (Tikanga) - no updates
Has occured once so far. Will test again latter.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL4 Beta2 in graphical mode
2. Go through the firstboot questions.
3. Wait for the X display manager to come up.
Even though the graphical screen shows up correctly in the install and in
firstboot, the graphical display manager fails to come up properly. Text mode is
not available on a virutal console. A manual reboot is required for the
graphical display to come up properly.
Working graphical display manager right after firstboot has been executed.
Product Name: 2373HU6
Version: ThinkPad T41
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M7 LW
[Radeon Mobility 7500]
Just installed this T41 for the second time. Exact same issue.
Please note that the install disc was booted using "linux askmethod" and I did a
network (NFS) install. I can't see how this could affect the X configuration,
however. Everything else was very standard.
same problem, 2 different machines
After grub there is no output, until welcome screen comes up, also no output
Installed from PXE. I can reboot as many times as I like with the same results.

Does it work the next reboot? What if you remove rhgb from the boot command line?
I'm not using rhgb (I usually remove it soon after intalation), as I stated
above, booted several times with the same results.
