Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 472681
F10 Preview doesn't launch the X server
Last modified: 2015-10-25 21:06:47 EDT
I'm not sure about the right 'component' involved, feel free to move it to the right one. When I boot my USB key containing F10 Preview, it loads all the services but doesn't launch the X server (and so the GDM). Seems like it spawns the X server each 2/3 sec but, despite that, nothing happen.
On this box I've a working F8 system, here's the output of "lspci -v" in case it could helps:

Thanks for your time.
I booted F10-Live (i686) final bits and I've now two different behaviours:
- Sometimes GDM starts and immediately hangs while loading the login box (both keyboard and mouse are disabled as well). I wonder if it is a kernel panic (I'll try to investigate more)...
- Sometimes GDM starts without problem but the desktop is totally broken: missing icons in the upper panel, mouse scrolling problems and text (on applications,places,system menu items) not displayed correctly. It also crashes after few seconds of moving the cursor.
I'm attaching some logs files, hope that they can help to track some interesting information. Please let me know how I can debug more this annoying problem.
