Description Bill Nottingham 2005-04-29 21:11:19 UTC
Description of problem:

It starts at priority 8, which means it will fail with nfs-mounted /usr

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-30 17:51:41 UTC
reverted in 6.8.2-30 in dist-fc4-HEAD

How did rhgb ever work on systems that have /usr nfs mounted?

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-30 17:52:31 UTC
(meaning the X server binary is in /usr, so unavailable until NFS is mounted
 on such systems)

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-02 13:02:22 UTC
It tries to start rhgb twice.   Once before network filesystems are mounted,
once after.

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-02 13:04:25 UTC
An alternative to changing the default priority of xfs is to do
/sbin/service xfs start inside rc.sysinit or the gdm-early-login script,
although that seems icky.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2005-05-02 16:03:20 UTC
Basically, rhgb silently failed with nfs /usr - you just didn't get it.
