Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468509
Kernel lockup in recent kernels at GDM
Last modified: 2008-11-11 13:28:09 EST
Description of problem: As of the latest snapshot my laptop will boot to GDM (showing all the pretty plymouth stuff) and then the keyboard, mouse and screen freeze. The screen freezes in 'garbage' and the system is unresponsive. Booting into an older kernel allows everything to work fine. This tells me that all the updates other then the kernel are ok. This is with an ATI Xpress200M which was going ok until now. There were occasional lockups before (with firefox) but not with anything else. None of these problems existed in F9 - so I'm assuming this is with the new drivers.
I'm afraid to upgrade to any other kernels since it will bump the one that works out of my available kernels to boot from.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 188.8.131.52-39.fc10.i686.img (and the one previous)
Steps to Reproduce:
computer freezes at GDM
expect GDM to show up and not be frozen
As of the preview release this issue is no longer present.
