GDM hangs up the X system
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem:
GDM hangs up my X.org system. After all the services has started up, it hangs my
computer up. My keyboard is useless (even CTRL-ALT combinations), but the mouse
GDM hasn't load anything yet, so I can do nothing.
If I switch to another Display Mananger (using single option in kernel, and then
/etc/sysconfig/desktop file), It starts without a problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to xorg-x11-server-Xorg-188.8.131.52-0.10.fc9, and
xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.1.99-1.fc9 (Maybe an intel driver problem?)
GDM should show the usual user selection screen.
Videocard: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Express Processor to
DRAM Controller (rev 03)
After update I've exactly the same problem - T61 with Intel 965GM chipset.
Xorg.log stop after it these lines:
(II) intel(0): xf86BindGARTMemory: bind key 0 at 0x0077f000 (pgoffset 1919)
(II) intel(0): xf86BindGARTMemory: bind key 1 at 0x03440000 (pgoffset 13376)
(II) intel(0): xf86BindGARTMemory: bind key 2 at 0x03450000 (pgoffset 13392)
(II) intel(0): xf86BindGARTMemory: bind key 3 at 0x03fcc000 (pgoffset 16332)
(II) intel(0): xf86BindGARTMemory: bind key 4 at 0x04b48000 (pgoffset 19272)
I can switch to console - kill Xorg and log as a user and run startx - this
works without problems.
Today with gdm - 1:2.21.2-0.2007.11.20.2.fc9.x86_64
gdm works again and I guess this bug can be closed.
