Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484432
/var/spool/gdm/force-display-on-active-vt is not created
Last modified: 2009-02-27 13:10:04 EST
Description of problem:
It seems that this file is not created by plymouth for some reason, causing X to start on vt7. The problem is that during shutdown, the pc switches to vt1 (nothing there) and the messages are fed to vt7. Adding touch /var/spool/gdm/force-display-on-active-vt to rc.local did the trick, but it's rather crude.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora 10
2. Wait for X
X starts on vt7
X starts on vt1
My Fedora 10 install is an upgrade from F-9. I am using the nvidia binary driver, and the boot line in grub.conf looks as follows:
kernel /vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64 ro root=UUID=ef3240de-3616-4735-8a9d-b5edf450d66d quiet rhgb vga=0x318
I think the bug 480113 is related to this.
