Re: [K12OSN] X locking up a server.

I recently asked about a server that was hard-locking on X.

Several things to try were presented.

For a time being, I would like the get X to just not start on the server
but still allow graphical logins from thin clients and vnc session

Eric said to change a line in the /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf file that was
supposed to make X not start on the server, but I cannot find that line in the gdm.conf file on this server.


Is there some other way to do this?
We have a Chinese girl that enrolled last week and she knows no english and I want to get this fixed so we can let her use a terminal session in Chinese to help her accustom to her classes.

Sooner I can get this working, the better. . .

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
