Description H. Dox 2004-10-04 04:20:42 UTC
Please pardon me if I am not writing this in the correct format... this is my very first bug report: I have a Radeon 7000 card and am using the default drivers that come with FC2. My problem occured yesterday when I tried loging out of KDE. I recieved an error message saying the greeter had crached. After clicking OK on the error dialogue the greeter tried to restart but the error ocurred again. I had to leave for work at that time so I just shut off the computer. When I arrived home from work I could not get anything graphical to work. Not even the graphical boot would start. I them booted into windows and tryed to google for some information on the problem but didn't find anything useful at that time. So, I took drastic measures and completely reinstalled FC2. Though a bit of a pain for other reasons it did solve the problem and all things graphical are working again. I have since updated everything except xorg-x11 stuff and everything continues to work. ..... I have since found the update to xorg-x11*-6.7.0-5 and have upgraded to it and that seems to be working okay.

xorg-x11-6.8 builds also has this problem. The -5 to -9 was the first FC2 breakage report. Narrowing this down to this build might help isolate which change has impacted this breakage. My problem was with a radeon 7200.
