Re: [K12OSN] X locking up a server.



It appears that this worked, however, when exiting a client logged in using vncviewer, it does the same thing as it did while running X on the console.

It locked up the server, but it wasn't a complete hard-lock. I have to
manually kill the processes to get it to let go.

There may just be some ghoulies on this thing and I may just have to do another install on it to get it working right. . .

This is a live server and I don;t have time to work out problems with upgrading to a newer K12LTSP so I really need to stick with FC3 for now on it.

If I update to a later version of K12LTSP, what impact will that have with my samba (primary functions of this server, K12LTSP is a sideline on it). In the past, I have jut copied my config files and account-related files and it was just a bit of tweaking to do then everything works. If I go to a new version of K12LTSP, will my current samba configs work with it?

Thanks!

It has been a while since I've looked at FC3...

I think this is the line you want to comment out:

Finding the gdm.conf file is not the problem. I found it, but can't find

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
clients.

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.

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


Try running:

    find /etc -name gdm.conf

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. . .

Thanks!

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?

Thanks!


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
