Re: [K12OSN] X locking up a server.

What will the result be commenting out those lines? Will that make the server run at console but still allow the clients to run X?

This is a Dell server with integrated video.

May try to disable the onboard video and swap in a card and see what happens if the software fix doesn't work.

I looked in /etc/X11/gdm.gdm.conf and a line like you provided below does not exist in there, and I am sure this server is running gdm.

Any other ideas?

I have a wierd problem.

I have a FC3 K12LTSP server that when booting, if you have it set to
boot to runlevel 5 (graphical login) it gets to the point where it
starts X and locks up the server. Hard lock.  You can't get different
consoles and you can't shell in or anything.

If it is set to boot to runlevel 3, it will boot and run fine.  Login
and startx and X will run, but when you try to logout, it hard-locks the
server that way, too.

Does anyone have any ideas about how to fix this?


I've had a dying video card do this to me. If you have a spare card
laying around, try swapping it out.

Worse-case, you tell the server to not startup X in run level 5. Edit
/etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf  and comment out this line:

	# 0=/usr/bin/X11/X,#0=/usr/bin/X11/X

if you use XDM or KDM, edit /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers and comment out

	#:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X
