Description Diego Novillo 2002-02-13 14:15:23 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011226

Description of problem:
When switching to runlevel 5, the graphical login screen never appears.  Instead
X continually crashes and re-starts.  

This problem occurs regardless of the login manager used.  I reproduced it with
both gdm and kdm.

I'll attach /var/log/messages and /var/log/XFree86.0.log with the messages
logged when switching to runlevel 5.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch to runlevel 5.
2. Watch X starting up and dying continuously.
	

Actual Results:  X switches to graphical mode and then dies.

Your X server log doesn't show any crash info, so it is not helpful
to know what the real problem might be.  It's useful nonetheless for
various other info.

One thing I'm a bit confused by though, is that this is filed against
Red Hat Linux 7.3/Alpha, and we do not have an Alpha product for 7.3.
Did you mean to file it against 7.1 or 7.2?  I believe the X version
used in your log is the 7.2/Alpha X release.

Is this problem still present in our released RHL 7.2/Alpha?  If so,
can you try using runlevel 3 and startx and let me know if it fails
there too?

If it fails with startx, I'll need you to get me a backtrace with
ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/gdb-xfree86 from a coredump, or from
starting the server with gdb directly in order to know where it is
dying.

Also, try disabling DRI by commenting out the: Load "dri" line
If that doesn't fix it, try disabling accel with:  Option "noaccel" also.

Do any of the above options stop the crashing?

We no longer support Alpha officially.
