unresolved symbol getsecs - X11 crash
Last modified: 2013-11-05 14:15:45 EST
Description of problem:
Reported (by me) to CentOS as bug #2572
When starting the X Server, the X Server initially starts but hangs, locking the
display, keyboard, and mouse. Machine continues to operate (IE you can ssh in)
but local access is pretty much frozen (no keyboard/mouse/screen)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Mouse pointer disappears, keyboard locks, gnome does not finish loading it's
A working X11 session
The attached log file is the result of running
startx > foo.log 2>&1

experience this issue in Fedora Core 6 on identical hardware.

/var/log/Xorg.0.log from that attempt as well.
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
