Description of problem:
When I want to logout session or shutdown computer, it doesn't work. Gnome panel

X is still working and doesn't want to close. Have to press a few times 'off'
button, then system closes. Very annoying.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-188.8.131.52-9.fc7 (I have tried also -13.fc8)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to Gnome session
2. logout or shutdown
3. server X remains running
server x remains running
server x closes and computer shows login screen or shuts down
I am using latest nvidia drivers from freshrpms.net repo, but this problem
happens with nv driver, so I think it's not a driver related problem.
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.

xorg.conf created by X11
While starting X11 asked me to choose LCD flat panel (resolution was right,
1440x900, but I was able to choose max 800x600, after selecting proper LCD, I
was able to select 1440x900).

Also, my friend has exactly the same Dell Latitude D620 and he has similar problem.
All of those logs show runs with the closed-source nvidia driver, which we are
unable to support. Do you experience this problem with the nv driver?
Marek, ajax is too nice to say it as bluntly as I am going to. Unless, you are
able to reproduce this bug with open source driver (most probably nv) in two
weeks, I will have to close this bug as CANTFIX. Usual nVidia blurb follows:
For users who are experiencing problems installing, configuring, or using the
unsupported 3rd party proprietary "nvidia" video driver, Nvidia provides
indirect customer support via an online web based support forum. Nvidia
monitors these web forums for commonly reported problems and passes them on to
Nvidia engineers for investigation. Once they've isolated a particular problem,
it is often fixed in a future video driver update.
The NVNews Nvidia Linux driver forum is located at:
Once you have reported this issue in the Nvidia web forums, others who may have
experienced the particular problem may be able to assist. If there is a real
bug occuring, Nvidia will be able to determine this, and will likely resolve the
issue in a future driver update for the operating system releases that they
While Red Hat does not support the proprietary nvidia driver, users requiring
technical support may also find the various X.Org, XFree86, and Red Hat mailing
lists helpful in finding assistance:
X.Org mailing lists:
XFree86 mailing lists:
Red Hat mailing lists:
No response from reporter, so continuing as said above. This is closed as
CANTFIX, because we cannot fix binary-only proprietary drivers.
