Re: GDM Crashes After Latest Xorg Updates for FC2


Does this just happen with GDM or would this also happen with KDM.

I was on Vacation for two weeks and when I cam back there were a
bunch of updates including xorg, gtk2 and kde. After upgrading
my graphical logon seems to have defaulted to an XDM style logon
and I can't run a GNOME session, but KDE works fine.

I do have an Nvidia card and am using the binary driver, but since
KDE worked I was presuming the problem was with gtk2.

When I go home tonight I will, boot up in init 3 and try launching
gnome without GDM, and see what happens. Then I will force a
reinstall of the Nvidia driver, and try again.

There must have been some other nasty issues with some of the other
upgrades as well because synaptic has also stopped working as have
numerous other GUI apps. It would be nice to discover that
reinstalling the Nvidia drivers fixes all these problems.

If I figure it out I'll report back tomorrow.

logs other than the following:

gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0

gdm_slave_exec_script: Failed starting: /etc/X11/gdm/Init/:0

gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :1

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You are probably using the nvidia binary drivers right? If so, reinstall them and it will do it.
