Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 242164
Gnome/Kde under XEN does not always start after executon of startd
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install XEN kernel on appropriate hardware (Intel all the way)
2. Reboot, chosing XEN kernel
First two times after installation, XEN worked fine, and I congratulated the
support/developers for having it solved for FC7. Thereafter, on further testing,
I can start XEN to where startd completes. At this point, I get no GNOME or KDE
startup (regular or root user)
Would like to use XEN. Have been waiting for a bug fix since November 2006 and
under FC6. I am attaching dumps of dmesg, messages, and Xorg logs.
I have a two disk system, therefore the logs are the ones created from system 2
after system FC7 failed. (There was some deletion that I did for information
before the last executions). That is to keep the log files more pertenant.

Here is my stupid 2 cents worth. Since startd is the last program executing, can
someone make a patched version of a sesstion that would follow startd and would
serve to take a snapshot of the system at this point in time, just before
control is turned over to GNOME.
And I thought I could start virtual XEN testing...
Here again.. to save time for you
Mother Board d945gnt (no pci, no external video -- using built-in)
Processors intel d930
memory 1 gig
Hard disk maxtor ide 200 gig, with about 100 gig free.
The bios version on the mother board is the one that is currently on the intel
web site. (Version 4078 dated April 5, 2007)
Keyboard and mouse are locked out. Keyboard lights do not reflect shift key test,
Mouse has no cursor and is not responsive. (The screen is black).
Please raise the priority from low to high.
Works fine with 64bit version. One can say, not at all with 32bit version
Since last xen update (past 31may 2007, it works for me)
