Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 221025
Gdm hangs during install/update scripts
Last modified: 2008-03-21 12:29:39 EDT
Description of problem:
In some situations gdm will hang during an update leaving yum/rpm stuck.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get gdm into the text mode dialog explaining your X server is bust
2. "yum update" to try and fix X server
3. Hangs on the gdm update until gdm is killed.
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?
(this is a mass message)
Bug is sort of still there but the 2 minute timeout/retry means you only get
stuck for 120 seconds
