Description Robin Green 2002-06-08 03:27:48 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020605

Description of problem:
I tried upgrading to glibc 2.2.90-10, and when I rebooted, starting a KDE
session by typing "startx" caused the X server to hang after displaying the
expected blue background (no "starting KDE" splash screen appeared). The mouse
pointer was frozen. CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to quit the X server, and CTRL+ALT+F1 to
switch to a VT, both had no effect.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install glibc 2.2.90-10
2. Make KDE the default
3. Run startx

Actual Results:  X hangs

Expected Results:  KDE should start up normally

Additional info:


Linux 2.4.18 with preempt patch

Downgrading back to glibc from RH7.3 fixed the problem.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-06-10 03:35:53 UTC
We do not support using rawhide glibc with RHL 7.3.  Also, we do not support
user compiled kernels with or without patches.

Also, if you're testing rawhide, things are very likely to be broken at
any given point in time, especially if mixing rawhide and 7.3.  Can you
reproduce this problem using a fully installed rawhide system with an
official Red Hat kernel (or the rawhide kernel)?

Ugh preempt... you really do like living on the edge...
Anyway if anything it looks like a glibc bug

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-06-22 03:24:38 UTC
2.2.90-12 may fix some of this for you; a problem with threads was fixed there.
