Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 242964
X server on i915 (T60) locks on shutdown with "mottled" screen
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem:
When shutting down the X server (either from system reboot/shutdown, quit button
or ctrl-alt-backspace), sometimes the server locks with a mostly blank screen,
littered with slightly lighter blocks about the size of a text cursor block.
Reboot is required to recover
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q xorg-x11-drv-i810
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run X windows
2. stop the server (shutdown/reboot, quit/logout button, ctrl-alt-bs)
3. Look for blank screen lockup
return to either console prompt or XDM screen or system shutdown/reboot
Saw this today when trying to switch to vt1 with ctl-alt-f1.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

I am not sure, but it looks like you have problems with SELinux. Could you post
here what you get from getenforce command? Could you please try to relabel your
hard drive (as an user root touch /.autorelabel and reboot; could take some
time, ten, fifteen minutes, before the reboot will finish). What are the results?
I'll relabel and reboot in a bit (got a kernel build going :))
We are still not done.
Reporter, could you please try to relabel your machine and try to reproduce the bug?
If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as
INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Argh. I completely forgot about this. I haven't had it happen in quite some time.
I have relabeled my filesystem twice since reporting this and haven't seen the
problem. I had some unrelated SELinux issues this week and disabled it, which is
how I'm running now (on up-to-date rawhide).
I suppose we should go ahead and close this, since I can't seem to reproduce it.
Thanks for letting us know.
