Description Tomasz Torcz 2009-08-21 07:39:55 UTC
Description of problem:
Can't start Xorg in VMware machine because of this error:

(II) config/hal: Adding input device ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse
(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/input/vmmouse_drv.so
(II) Module vmmouse: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
	compiled for, module version = 12.6.5
/usr/bin/Xorg: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/input/vmmouse_drv.so: undefined symbol: xf86LoaderReqSymLists

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

(today's rawhide)

I can confirm this on i686 too, but in my case the undefined symbol error never made it to the log file: I was left with a black unresponsive screen, no X running, and a log file that ends abruptly:

(II) LoadModule: "vmmouse"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/vmmouse_drv.so
(II) Module vmmouse: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for, module version = 12.6.5
        Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
        ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 7.0

Ssh'ing in and starting X from a terminal does show the undefined symbol error message as above.

I haven't been able to start X for a few weeks now, probably since updating xorg-x11-drv-vmmouse-12.6.5-1.fc12.i686 on 6-Aug, but it wasn't until today I thought to try to start X from a terminal.

Reverting to xorg-x11-drv-vmmouse-12.6.4-2.fc12.i586.rpm solves the problem for now.

Fixed in 12.6.5-2.fc12
