View Full Version : watch out for xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.10.0-3.fc13

10th February 2010, 12:43 AM
I did a rawhide update today which resulted in a non-bootable system.

I recovered by reviewing what the update set included and made a guess it was
the one xorg package since the boot up got all the way to smartd service which is the last one which starts (S99smartd) and I was not getting to X.
I then booted to runlevel 3 and started X by hand with startx. That caused a hard hang proving that X was the problem. I downgraded xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.10.0-3.fc13
to xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.10.0-2.fc13 which got me bootable again.

Did anyone else have this problem?

same problem...

I was using "kernel*", "glibc*", "mesa*", "libdrm*" and "xorg*" from rawhide on FC12.

It work after a full "xorg*" downgrade to fc12...

Please file a bug (ideally with Xorg.0.log from a failed attempt to start X with the broken driver). Thanks.
