Description of problem:System completely freeze after logout or shutdown.
A)system is fully updated to latest updates
B)system is a laptop (dell d620)
C)desktop system works ok. So maybe specific laptop issue
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Do you have "Automatically save session on logout" checked in
If so, could be a dupe of bug 243761.
Do the packages in
fix the problem for you?
no, i dont have "Automatically save session on logout". I disabled also desktop
effects but problem remains. Can i do something to check what is happening?
Can you switch VTs? Does the mouse still move?
what processes are still running?
can you ssh in from another machine?
Only mouse pointer can be moved. But i have more info:
This is a desktop-effects-enable problem. When i tried to disable them the
laptop freezes the same way. Also from another account (same laptop) that has
desktop-effects-disabled there is not such a problem: i can logout and shutdown
My laptop comes with nvidia graphics so i use the binary driver...
okay, i'm going to move this to compiz, then.
this problem does not exist now (after some updates)
