Description Martin Krizek 2012-08-23 06:25:40 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to Leave -> Restart, the system doesn't reboot and screen goes blank instead (seems like frozen, I can't swith to console). Running 'reboot' command works. Tested on fully updated Fedora 18 Alpha TC3 x86_64 in KVM.

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Martin Krizek 2012-08-23 06:28:21 EDT
Proposing as a Beta blocker per criterion: "All release-blocking desktops' offered mechanisms (if any) for shutting down, logging out and rebooting must work"
Comment 2 Martin Krizek 2012-08-23 06:30:05 EDT
Update: 'Shut down' has the same behavior.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2012-08-23 08:16:09 EDT
kde-workspace-4.8.0-systemd-shutdown.patch is supposed to hand this job off to  systemd (right Kevin?), and it does on f17.

So either the systemd api changed, or we have a systemd buglet here (or something else causing systemd shutdown to fail).
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2012-08-23 17:42:06 EDT
When running KDM, kde-workspace-4.8.0-systemd-shutdown.patch has no effect, instead the shutdown is requested to KDM, which runs the traditional command-line executables to request a shutdown from systemd. Now why running "reboot" directly works, but when KDM runs it, it doesn't, I don't know.
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2012-08-23 17:44:27 EDT
In any case, this smells like déjà vu: IIRC, we had an issue before a previous release (F17?) where systemd would kill KDM before it had a chance to issue the reboot. This had been fixed for the release. Has this annoying behavior returned?
Comment 6 Martin Krizek 2012-08-31 07:35:33 EDT
I don't see this issue on F18 Alpha TC4 anymore.
