Description of problem:
When KDE inital login sees an old KDE 1.x config environment, it asks if you
want to convert. If you select yes, it hangs, eating 99% of a CPU. Even after
a telinit 3, telini5, and login as gnome, the KDE process continues to hang.
When the process is killed, it loads KDE, even on top of gnome.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in, select KDE as Window manager (must have an old KDE 1.x config, and
2.CTRL-ALT F1 and log in
4. telinit 5
5. Log in Gnome
6. use top to see the convert process eating 100% of one CPU
7. Kill convert process
Actual Results: KDE loads on top of gnome
Expected Results: Initial conversion should convert within a reasonable
timeframs (say 2 minutes max) then load KDE. If conversion is not possible,
abort converstion, return error, and ask to load back up 1.x config, then
continue loading KDE.
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.
Closing as CANTFIX.
