Description Linus Walleij 2008-03-07 16:56:57 EST
Description of problem:
Since version 2.21.8 I have this behaviour in the GDM greeter: gdm starts, shows
a user list. Select any user makes the X server blink and restart or whatever it
does, then I get back to the GDM greeter again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
2. Select a user in the GDM greeter
Actual results:
GDM cycles back to the greeter

Expected results:
A login password prompt.

Additional info:
This is a HP Compaq nc2400 laptop using the i810 Intel driver for X.

Can you please see if any messages are logged to syslog when this occurs?
