Description zachary charlop-powers 2008-11-05 13:19:24 EST
Description of problem:  After 10 minutes, the screensaver turns on. When attempting to use the computer, instead of being prompted for a user password, a mouse icon comes on the screen and can move but does nothing. In order to have access to the computer, I have to start restart the x-server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
these are my current packages (November 5th) but this problem has been happening for ht elast few days and I figure it would work itself out. there have been a few xserver and drv-ati package updates during this time.

xorg-x11-server-Xorg -
xorg-x11-drv-ati -
xscreensaver 5.07-2.fc10

How reproducible: very

Steps to Reproduce:
1.allow to sleep
2. attempt to wake
Actual results: freeze and appearance of mouse.

Expected results: login/password prompt

* To make it sure that you are using xscreensaver, would you show me
  the result of the following?
  $ rpm -qa | grep screensaver | sort

* Does it work for you to downgrade some components to the previous one?
  For example, if you want to downgrade xorg-x11-server, you can download it

$ rpm -qa | grep screensaver | sort


I was going to downgrade the packages to solve the problem but the latest rawhide upgrade seems to have fixed it. The only package that I think could have ahd the effect is the latest kernel which is now

There is no xscreensaver. Switching to gnome-screensaver.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-11-25 23:49:53 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 03:45:52 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 01:45:08 EST
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
