View Full Version : FC2/KDE Not Able to Logout ...
25th May 2004, 04:50 PM
I am having a difficulty in loging out from FC2/KDE. Whenever I use Logout applet to logout, the computer hangs. (No signal to monitor, PC still on ... I have to push the power button.)
If I do "sudo /sbin/shutdown -r now", then it properly shuts down and reboots.
I have ATI Rage 128 Pro video card on Dell Optiplex GX240. As far as I know, r128 driver once (RedHat 7.3) had problem. Would it be the case that this problem came be due to the change to XOrg?

By commenting out Load "dri" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I could logout properly. But, it lowers display performance.

I did an upgrade from FC1 to FC2 and I have this same problem. I'm using the same video card too. It would be nice to know how to correct it. I'm having to "shutdown -r now" to logout cleanly.
But I think I'm going to revert back to FC1. Everything worked for me on FC1 plus it's a more stable kernel.

I am having same problem...at logout I get the comfrimation of logout...then blank screen...does not shutdown...have to power off...then on restart it shows improper shutdown and the disk is scaned for errors.
I have commented out the dri line in xorg.conf previously when I installed nvidia drivers...anyone have a solution other than loggin out from commandline?

Did you also comment out/remove the line
The NVidia driver has it's own way of loading up the GL driver hooks.

Did you also comment out/remove the line "load glcore
there was not an entry like that in xorg.conf...however do I need to remove the lines at the end:

Ok I re-installed FC2...worked great....would shutdown fine...installed nvidia drivers...still shutdown fine....installed Star Office...then the problem started again....I uninstalled staroffice..still have shutdown problem...I also notice that when I try to go to tty1 (ctrl + alt + f1) it locks ...there are bands of color across the screen (seems like a video problem). I have since booted to old kernel
2.6.5...still same problem...I did install nvidia again...anyone got suggestions?
I was looking through the system logs and there is a error with "mpmpd" that seem to be at the same time it locks up...it is listed in services as
"multipath device monitoring and management"

I have re-installed 3 times last night...everything works great until I install the nvidia drivers(graphics acceleration works great)....no way to logout...not even using command line (sudo /sbin/shutdown -r now).
there is one other thing I noticed during these installs: FC2 reports that the partition is not aligned(it satates that it can be ignored and that this is fixable) but I have found no way to fix it...could this be the real issue?
I have looked at services and disabled some things with no good result...I installed on different partition on different HD..same error with "partition not aligned"...
I went into Win XP and used Partition Magic to correct the partition, but it then marks the partition as "bad"...
I usually use Partiton Magic to set up my drive for FC...formating and creating the swap partition...should I do this differently?

I know I talk too much...:)
I have solved my shut down problems by using the 8 stacks kernel at Linuxant:
the system does shutdown a little differently..and quicker...but it works...acceleration works...all is good again :p
crackers and all others thanks for the help, as always, you have pointed me to the solution,
