    Default Logout Issue - openSuse 11.1


    Hi,

    I just installed openSuse 11.1 on my IBM T61 laptop and everything is
    working fine except the Logout feature doesn't work.

    When I click on "Logout" it displays only blank screen and then I'm
    left with no other choice then reboot the system.

    I'm sure its not frozen because when I do <Ctrl><Alt><Del> twice it
    starts the shutdown process.

    Please let me know the solution for this issue.


    Regards,
    Anant

    When it appears frozen can you access a vt ( Ctrl+Alt+F1 ) if so login as root enter pass and see if:

    shutdown -h now

    has any affect.

    I see the exact same problem as the thread starter.

    When logging out the X server attempts to restart but instead I see a
    blank screen with a stuck cursor at the top left. Although the system is
    responsive, nothing is displayed on the screen, so everything happens
    "blind". Eg. switching to vt1 and logging in, I can issue a find command
    and see the hard drive going nuts, but I see nothing on the screen: it
    stays blank with the stuck cursor.

    The only key that restores screen behaviour is CTRL+ALT+DEL, causing a
    graceful shutdown/restart.. in this case the openSUSE shutdown splash
    appears. Hitting ESC during shutdown though displays a vt1 with the
    opensuse logo at the top left and pixel garbage where the shutdown audit
    should appear.

    I only see this issue when using the proprietary nvidia driver. When I
    use the X.Org "nv" driver, there is no weirdness when logging out. Thing
    is, I can't get higher than 16-bit colour from the nv driver on the
    T61's Quadro NVS 140 graphics (any ideas?)

    I can see the same issue if I switch from my live KDE session to vt1
    (ctrl+alt+f1), then login as root, run init 3 (shutting down X) and then
    init 5 to start X again. So the issue is not with logging out, but
    instead the restart of X with the nvidia driver, after it's successfully
    run once. I'm fairly sure it's an nvidia driver issue; I've tried all
    drivers from 177.82 up to 180.18. I'd love to try 173.xx that I used
    with openSuse 11.0, but unfortunately this won't compile in 11.1 with
    the 2.6.27 kernel.

    I would also be interested to see if openSuse 11.0 has this issue with
    the newer nvidia drivers (177.82+).

    Glad I'm not alone. This issue has been driving me nuts. I've posted
    'some details about this on my blog'
    (http://my.opera.com/sebt/blog/2008/1...se-11-1-on-t61) and
    invite further comments there until this issue is resolved. I've also
    filed a bug reports with novell and nvidia about this, see my blog for
    the links.
