Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499747
Fedora11 crashes before login, after update (10.93)
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:22:58 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora crashes at the end of the boot sequence (or 'Plymouth' bar), when trying to display login screen. The screen flashes between blacks (a plain black and a 'trying X' black). The screen gives up flashing after one minute, and is crashed (no cursor/prompt, no ctrl+alt+Fx to another prompt, no ctrl+alt+delete).
This consistently happens after updating F11preview-Gnome with the first batch of online updates. ie going from 10.92 to 10.93.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have 9600GT card (official driver not installed, nothing but the general F11 updates)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install liveCD Fedora11Preview-x86_64
2. Install all updates (Sorry I didn't note them)
3. Restart with new kernel, (possibly twice)
Crash before login screen
Does booting in runlevel 3 and starting X manually work ?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Yes, you can boot to other runlevels. Only in 5 X server segfaults almost at the end of its work. Result is that X is not responding. Shutdown via power button acpi and reboot to 3 makes it running again.
I have a nvidia G9600GT, running livnas kmod-nvidia. I tried akmod-nvidia too=> no help. Seems to be in X code, maybe it is not matching together. The came on Jun 16. Before I was running Fed 11 preview without any problems of that kind.
Please ask, if I can be of help!
Last action in Xorg.0.log is
(II) LoadModule "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so
<here it ends>
Found it, sorry it was not a fault of X or nvidia: It was qt that was not completely installed (for some reason) ldconfig returned messages that files where incomplete.
A rpm -qf (file) gave me the packages qt-devel and qt-x11. So I reinstalled them via yum reinstall...
So for me this is closed...
