Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 244572
choosing system -> shutdown immediately locks up the pc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
With F7 x86_64 on Dell Dimension E520 with Intel
Core2 Duo CPU and Gnome Desktop choosing System
-> Shutdown from panel locks up the PC.
The panel goes blank and the open System menu
turns white, thats it. No further activity.
No keyboard response anymore. Have to pull the
power plug to shutdown.
(The only way to shutdown cleanly is to switch to
a console and type (for example) 'shutdown -h now').
All the latest updates have been applied up to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install F7 on Dimension E520, update and try to
shutdown from the panel
Steps to Reproduce:
Same thing happens here, on two separate F7 machines (x86 installations, x86_64
hardware). One machine is a Lenovo 3000 N100 0768-A2U laptop with an Intel Core
2 Duo; the other machine is a home-brew AMD Athlon 64 3200+ machine. Again, both
of them are running a 32-bit installation of Fedora. The bug does not happen on
a vanilla installation, but it does come into play after updating the machines.
I have reclassified the bug under component 'compiz'.
With desktop-effects enabled, using compiz, the desktop
freezes on all of : logout, restart, shutdown, etc. when
selected from 'system -> shutdown' or 'system -> logout'.
No keyboard activity anymore and the power plug has to
This happens with both the 'nv' and 'nvidia' drivers.
When desktop-effects are disabled things work as they should.
I recently found the time to update my AMD Athlon 64 machine and it seems that
one of the updates fixed the problem for that machine. I still have the problem
on my Intel Core 2 Duo machine, however, even though it is fully updated. I am
using nVidia graphics cards on both machines with livna's kmod-nvidia package; I
am also using compiz, configured through the 'desktop-effects' applet.
Dupe of bug 244506 ?
