Description Adam Kropelin 2002-10-25 19:36:04 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
When running 'startx', the screen blanks and the machine deadlocks completely
(keybd LEDs do not respond, network ping does not respond). This happens when
DRI is enabled (and it is enabled by default). Removing the "DRI" section at the
top of /etc/X11/CF86Config and also commenting out the 'Load "dri"' line in the
Module section of the same file allows X to start successfully. This bug has
been around since at least RH 7.3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
XFree86-4.2.0-72

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just run 'startx' with the default XF86Config file provided by the RH 8.0
installer.
	

Actual Results:  System deadlocks as described.

Expected Results:  X desktop should have eventually appeared.

Additional info:

Hardware configuration is a little 'interesting':
2 CPU SMP P2-450 XEON
Intel 440 GX chipset
PCI Voodoo 5500 card --note PCI, not AGP

Please attach your X config file, log file, and the output of the following:

lspci -vn
cat /proc/version

Cannot post X log file because machine deadlocks before any data gets written to
the log. If you have a suggestion on how to work around this, I'll give it a shot...
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-24 14:11:17 EDT
Please upgrade to Fedora Core 2 or later, and if this issue turns
out to still be reproduceable, please file a bug report in the
X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the
"xorg" component.

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes
that become available for consideration in future updates.
