Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 395471
One time yes, second time no
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:36 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting gdm in run level 5, I get just blank screen with mouse cursor.
When trying second start of X (for example, switching to run level 3, and
running startx) the screen is totally black and even monitor is being switched
off. For the first failure to run I blame gdm, because when gdm has been
upgraded, everything seems to work now. But I fear the need to restart X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-2.21.2-0.2007.11.20.2.fc9.x86_64 (the new one which works)
3 out of 3 attempts
Steps to Reproduce:
2.because of whatever, stop them
3.run X once more
monitor switched off
new shiny instance of X

running /var/log/Xorg.0.log (I haven't touched /etc/X11/xorg.conf between different attempts so it should be no problem, IMHO)
is this still happening with latest rawhide kernel/X.org/drivers/gdm?
I've fixed a few bugs in this area.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

This has been fixed a long time ago.
