Description martin 2009-02-20 03:11:37 EST
Description of problem:
dell poweredge reboots when x-server (also when kernel boots with rhgb option in grub) starts. it only fails with the combination of rhel5.3 dell poweredge 2900 AND the Lindy USB-PS/2-Adapter (No. 42866; www.lindy.com).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dell poweredge 2900 III
lindy usb-ps/2-adapter (42866)
rh EL 5.3

How reproducible:
just start x-server

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot kernel with standard parameters (rhgb and quiet)
2. or start x-server
Actual results:
using no x-server or using no USB-PS/2-Adapter for KVM Switch

Expected results:
no reboot and normal working like with rhel5.2

Additional info:
the adapter is hardware only and don't need any special driver (the lindy support told me).

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.
