RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Comment 17 Oliver Ilian 2013-01-30 20:53:47 UTC
the ticket mentions that this bug is fixed with gnome-screensaver-2.28.3-24.el6.x86_64, however i still see the same issue on my RHEL 6 CSB (Lenovo T430s, Graphic: Intel HD 4000) with the package installed. After the install of gnome-screensaver-2.28.3-24.el6.x86_64 my notebook was already booted several times. Any idea?



Comment 18 Jiri Koten 2013-01-31 09:41:40 UTC
You also need a new Xorg from upcoming Rhel-6.4, xorg-x11-server-1.13.0-11.el6

See bz#816347.
