Comment 1 Reartes Guillermo 2011-03-24 23:06:20 UTC
I installed another machine, updated it and reproduced it.

When executing an 'init 1' the following appears in the messages:

Mar 24 18:32:09 f15a kdm: :0[1085]: Cannot close ConsoleKit session: Unable to close session: Unable to find session for cookie

i wonder if it is related...


Additional info:

* tty1 is unusable, i must press ALT+F2 to use the next avaiable one.

* from tty2, a 'ps aux|grep tty' shows that no agetty is running for
tty1 and tty2(ok, because i am logged in there).


Results after hitting this bug:

If i perform a 'systemctl default' or 'init 5' it executes it correctly.
But then i perform an 'init 1' i sent my computer to a black-hole
Issuing an 'init 1' from cold-boot works fine.

* Bug 688658 - F15 issuing 'init 1' from konsole [via su -] causes black screen/no signal (with serial port console there is no black screen), must use reset button

Comment 2 Michal Schmidt 2011-04-04 21:04:56 UTC
Does tty1 become usable again if you do "systemctl start getty@tty1.service"?

It is probably the same problem that Lennart put in his TODO some time ago:

* isolate multi-user.target doesn't start a getty@tty1 if we run it from

yes, if i issue 'init 3' from graphical.target and then
from tty2 issue 'systemctl start getty@tty1.service' tty1 works.

Tested with these versions:

systemd.x86_64           25-1.fc15          @updates-testing
systemd-units.x86_64     25-1.fc15          @updates-testing
