the shutdown dialog and I have to kill X. g-p-m is set to "ask me" on power
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure gnome-power-manager is set to "ask me" on power button press.
2. Press power button
Screen dims then does nothing. Not able to click on anything any more.
Expected to see a choice dialog.
I get this too, although I put this down to old and svn packages doing crazy
Which version of gnome-session do you have? Are you using compiz or metacity?
gnome-session-2.18.0-7.fc7 and I'm using metacity.
This was fixed in 2.18.0-8, looks like nobody asked for it to be in F7 final.
Reassigning to gnome-session.
Same versions for me.
I'm running a x60 with intel graphics if that helps.
hitting this on a dell d620 with nvidia card with nvidia's driver .
the latest package on FC7 is gnome-session-2.18.0-7.fc7 :(
You can snatch the new gnome-session builds at:
or even newer at:
Both should fix it. It just needs to go out as an update.
(In reply to comment #8)
Yes, confirmed, this fixes the issue for me.
build 7411 works for me too.
grrrrr, we didn't get this tagged for release? Let's get this out asap.
Ah, Matthias is already pushed an update request.
I have a similar problem with a HP ML110 ProLiant (an some other hardware), but
my system is in init 3 state.
If I press the power button when the system is on notthing is happens.
I must login with root and type poweroff for shutdown the server.
kool. build #7411 works.
bravo ! for the fedora team .
Sorry for the OT, but what means "build #7411"?
is a new version of kernel?
It's possible test it? How?
buiild #7411 -> http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=7411
new version of gnome-session .
No, my problem it happens on a system in init 3 state without gnome,
and on another server with gnome installed but the server in init 3 state
I must open another bug?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
