Cannot resize windows/move windows/change config after regular yum update NVIDIA driver
Last modified: 2009-12-18 04:05:21 EST
Description of problem:
After a routine Yum update Gnome becomes inoperable in the following ways:
Two "untitled" window tags appear in the task bar
Workspace switcher becomes inoperable
Any window that opens cannot be resized
Any window that is open has to have the cursor in it to accept input
Any window that is open has "On Top" focus and cannot be moved
Any utilities that deal with sessions/windows/config do not accept input
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
CPU AMD 64X2 dual core
NVIDIA Driver Version: 177.82
X version 11.0 (1.5.3)10503000
GPU Quadro NVS 210S/NVIDIA GeForce 6150LE
Any YUM update through counsule or package updater
Steps to Reproduce:
2.log off and then log on
See problem descritpion
No change in Gnome or X
The updates break the soft link to the lib64.so files
recompile the NVIDIA driver FIXES the problem. The gconf update caused the problem. There should be a small documentation note with this update stating that if using a NVIDIA driver the driver will have to be recompiled to work properly. This bug runs you around pointing to other areas instead of the FIX.
AGAIN THE FIX RECOMPILE THE DRIVER TO THE KERNEL. THEN ALL IS WELL in GNOME HEAVEN AGAIN.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
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.
