Description Mads Kiilerich 2008-11-13 20:05:48 EST
(21:16:29) kiilerix1: halfline: apropros tty magic, is it supported to boot to runlevel 3, login, and then telinit to 5?
(21:20:11) halfline: in that case it will but X on vt7
(21:20:41) kiilerix1: I'm quite sure that I saw something else ...
(21:20:58) kiilerix1: and X got in a state where I got a beep on most of the keypresses
(21:21:00) halfline: if it's not working file it
(21:21:24) halfline: ohhh so if you boot into runlevel 3
(21:21:28) halfline: that file will get written out
(21:21:36) kiilerix1: many strange things were going on, so I don't have an exact test case
(21:21:44) halfline: i think i know what's going on
(21:22:11) halfline: it's an artifact of the junky way we force the boot transition
(21:24:06) halfline: kiilerix1: if you add to /etc/event.d/quit-plymouth    the lines pre-start script \n rm -f /var/spool/gdm/force-display-on-active-vt \n end script right before the exec
(21:24:09) halfline: does your problem go away?
(21:26:47) kiilerix1: I will try next time I boot

(01:51:51) kiilerix: halfline: removing /var/spool/gdm/force-display-on-active-vt made it possible to make the transition from runlevel 3 to 5
(01:52:04) kiilerix: but doing it pre-start apparently didn't work
(01:52:34) kiilerix: doing it post-stop seemed to work
(01:52:42) kiilerix: when is the file created?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Hmm... Perhaps I saw it working.

Has it been fixed?
