Description Dennis Gilmore 2003-04-05 14:19:50 UTC
Description of problem: 
When using KDM or XDM as my login manager the machine locks up.  it logs out of everything 
and seems to be about to restart the login screen and the screen stays black.  i have tried this 
on a desktop machine here with a cirrus logic chipset and it works fine  but on the laptop with a 
radeon 7500 it doesnt work.  GDM will work but if i log out of kde with gdm i can not shutdown 
or reboot the machine directly, i have to go to the login promt and shutdown/reboot from there.   
i think it is a XFree86 bug as i got the exact same error with mandrake 9.1 on this machine, 
and a desktop i have here that i compiled kde 3.1.1 on that has a radeon 7000 card works fine.

If you completely disable your sound card, by unconfiguring the kernel
modules, does this problem go away?  Please test that, reboot, and
let me know if it changes anything or not.

XDM and KDM both still lock up with sound disabled.  i dont think its the same as bug 87544 
as GDM works

This same bug appears when using KDM on the Dell Optiplex GX 260.

Comment 5 Dennis Gilmore 2003-05-12 11:47:18 UTC
I have updated to XFree86-4.3.0-8  and i can now logout with KDM.  I think its a
similiar to bug 87544  but not quite the same .  But its now resolved.
