Description Bob Raitz 2009-03-27 19:57:53 UTC
The computer in question will not finish starting an X session (XFCE-4.6.0 or KDE-3.5.10) with linux-2.6.29. The X session starts with the X cursor, which then turns into the watch cursor. The machine can be rebooted via ssh, but X will not shut down on it's own.

To follow: kernel .config, lspci, /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log

/var/log/Xorg.0.log while running 2.6.27-gentoo-r9

/var/log/Xorg.0.log from same system while X is actually up and running. This is under 2.6.27-gentoo-r9, but the results are the same when running a .27 version kernel. Note. This same machine won't work with .28 kernels either. I am one of the last outstanding bugs with the .28 version kernels.

Unless there is someone who wishes to take on this bug as their own, I request that it be closed. The machine in question has died, and I am not going to attempt to fix it again. Therefore, this bug dies with the machine...unless anyone else would like to take over.
Comment 7 Gordon Jin 2009-09-17 03:48:42 UTC
Closing then. Btw we have some 8xx fixes in newer kernel.
