Description Laurent Goujon 2007-06-15 06:02:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Since last kernel update, the graphical server can't start. The boot process is
 text-only and at the end a box showing that X can't start pops up.
Switching back to the previous version (2.6.20-1.2316.fc5) solves the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. At grub screen choose to boot on version 2.6.20-1.2319.fc5
2. The boot is text-only
3. Instead of the login manager, a text pop up appears saying that X can't start
Actual results:
X doesn't start at all

Expected results:
The usual graphical boot process/login

Additional info:
Here's the backtrace in X.org server logs:
(WW) ****INVALID IO ALLOCATION**** b: 0x1800 e: 0x1807 correcting^G

   *** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
   *** be the reason for the server aborting.

Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2007-06-15 13:50:43 EDT
Adam, can you explain this message?
This is probably a kernel thing, where some PCI resources don't get claimed
properly, but why does X crash?
Comment 2 petrosyan 2008-03-16 01:14:04 EDT
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are no longer maintained. Is this bug still
present in Fedora 7 or Fedora 8?
