Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 864547
occasional black screen after installation is finished
Last modified: 2012-10-09 10:48:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Very scarcely I see only a black screen after the installation is finished. I see it only with DVD/netinst install (actually started over PXE), I haven't seen it with Live. It happened twice, every time I was AFK and when I returned, I saw only a black screen with mouse cursor on it (moving the cursor works). So I have no idea in what installation phase it happened.
I see this in anaconda logs:
> 10:23:00,756 ERR program: Error running metacity: SIGCHLD caught when trying to start the X server.
I thought this might be caused by my nouveau driver, but satellit confirmed this issue too, and he has an intel card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F18 Beta TC2 (not Live)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the installation
2. go away for a coffee
3. return back and see just a black screen with a mouse cursor
