Default F14, can't logout from X environment - Bug 665540

Hi all,

I know that probably this is not the right place, but really i don't know how and where i can gather the attention on serius issue i have found on fedora 14.

Shortly:
the problem comes up this way:

1) boot in runlevel 3
2) enter the X environment with startx
3) try to logout

when i logout the screen remain freezed with the background image showed, keyboard and mouse are dead. The machine is still up and network reachable, but no X related process are still active. The problem comes up only with certain type of hardware. I reproduced the problem with vmware virtual hw and with a core i7, asus p6t mb and nvidia gt210.


I posted a lot of details on bugzilla (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=665540), on the forum (http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=256585) and on the user mailing list (http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/users/2011-January/391023.html).

Until now i was unable to gather the attention of a developer and the bug is still present, i have just done a test after having applied all the f14 updates.

This bug is preventing me to upgrade from f13 to f14 and really i don't now what else i can try.


Sorry again if i have bothered you on the dev mailing list.

Marco

I see something similar on my work machine with ATI (unsure of the
actual card specs). I've worked around this by switching to the TTY
which I did startx from and sending it a ^C. This has worked for me
flawlessly so far.

Right. Same here. I should have mentioned that the ^C sent to startx is
the "logout" action here .

Sorry Ben, now it's clear, thank you :-) and I will do some tests and* I'll let you know the result.
However i think that by this way you have never correctly closed X environment. Do you suffer any collateral effects ?

The only things running that care about X when I do this are:

- urxvt256cd
- xmobar
- xmonad

None of them hold important files open (at least for writing), so it's
cleaner than a reboot would be in this case. The serverauth is left
laying around, but reusing that is hitting the PID jackpot AFAIK.
