Description The Source 2008-01-28 03:12:34 EST
Description of problem:
After several seconds (perhaps after some service probes for floppy) loading
screen becomes very slow and the entire loading is very slow. Instead of
constantly circling loading sign I see discretely moving one. System also reacts
to input with huge delay. This continues until I get to login screen. When xorg
restarts and shows it, system speed becomes normal. Happens only on x86_64.
32bit version works fine.

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.

Without xorg.conf loading speed is normal.

The first log is from your computer running binary-only closed source nvidia
drivers. The means we couldn't help you with it, as  we are not able to support
binary-only drivers. If you would be able to reproduce this issue using only
open source software, please, reopen this bug with the additional information,
but in meantime I have no choice than to close this bug as CANTFIX (because we
really cannot fix it).

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
officially support.

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:
