Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492226
Nouveau driver doesn't allow logout to command prompt
Last modified: 2009-05-20 19:33:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Followed Testday procedure and got as far as the tests of logging into runlevel 3 and starting x as a user.
X starts OK and is usable. Logging out does not return to the command line. I'm left with the background image, no panels, menus or mouse pointer. No response to Ctrl-Alt-Backspace or Ctrl-Alt-Fx keys.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Used the LiveCD provided for the Testday.
No time to try again - LiveCD takes ages to boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Append " 3" to the end of the kernel options at boot
2. Login as root, create new user, logout and login as newly created user
3. startx and then log out
4. No return to the command prompt
No command prompt, background image remains.
To be dropped back to the command prompt.
Could not check system status remotely as network not connected before "freeze".
Can I grab /var/log/Xorg.0.log while running nouveau please?
Created attachment 336922 [details]
Xorg log as requested. No crash on logout this time.
So, this issue is resolved now then?
no response from reporter for nearly a month, closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Reporter, if this issue is still valid, please do re-open. thanks.
