Subject: general: gnome locks up (other CLI terminals still OK)
Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2013 11:37:28 +0000
Package: general
Severity: important


After using Gnome for a few minutes it locks up. i.e. mouse pointer still moves but nothing else works. 
Even the on-screen clock stops.
ctrl-alt-F1 still gets me to CLI which still works normally.
Can then reboot using ctrl-alt-delete but haven't found any other way to get Gnome back.

Please file the bug against gnome-shell using reportbug on the system
where you experience this problem.

I can confirm this bug, it has been present for the last few months. You
don't have to restart the computer though, it is sufficient to restart
gdm3 (i.e. sudo /etc/init.d/gdm3 restart). You will lose your currently
running gnome session, but don't need to restart.


Cheers,

Bastian

Sorry, might have been a bit to quick to close the bug as I somehow read
gnome-shell in the subject, doh'

Richard, can you confirm, that the bug is happening on the system you
filed the bug report from, i.e. squeeze?

To me this looks like an X issue. Can you attach /var/log/Xorg.0.log,
the output of dmesg and your ~/.xsession-errors next time such a lock up
occurs.

Michael
