User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20080325 Fedora/188.8.131.52-1.fc7 Firefox/184.108.40.206
Description of problem:
Graphic boot proceeds normally from live F9 Preview cd up to the point where
there are the 5 expected icons on the left side of the work space. The bars at the
top of the screen (Applications/Places/System,etc) and bottom of the screen never
appear. System is working though - right click brings up expected window.
Ctl/alt/f2 switches from x to terminal screen ok and I can login as root.
Hardware is a new Madtux AMD Sempron LE-1100 1.9GHz cpu with 512M of ddr2 667
ram and a 1.9GB swap area. System passes memtest86 and runs Debian x86_64.
CD passes the selftest. p.s. screen resolution was 800x600.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 2.6.25-0.234.rc9.git1.fc9.x86_64 on an x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Do graphical Bootup of F9 Preview CD on i86_64 hardware of similar configuration
No task bars at top and bottom of workspace
Should have had task bars in order to start applications, set preferences,etc.
Throwing this over at gnome-panel for lack of a better target.
can you attach the output of ps ux ?
I haven't seen this in a lot of live boots and no response from the reporter,
dropping down to F9Target
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
