Following Andrew's exhortations at the last main meeting, I built 5.1 and
installed it on my laptop.
My 3 AMD GPU bugs are all fixed! Very impressive, since I haven't had any
Bugzilla email about them for months. At least, I suppose they're fixed: the
symptoms don't show any more. On checking logs I saw 1 Oops (from 3 boots), and
it looked similar to the ones I used to see all the time.
Confidently I installed 5.1 as my default desktop system. This was a disaster.
The system came up to the login prompt very quickly, without changing from the
initial terminal font to a smaller one as it usually did. There was a message
from INIT that "SV" was respawning too quickly. When I supplied user name and
password, I just got the login prompt again.
I went back to 5.0 and checked what was in debug.log (which logs everything).
And there was nothing at all! No hint that 5.1 had ever started - just a 7
minute gap between the last 5.0 shutdown and 5.0 starting.
I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to report this - does anyone have a
Cheers ... Duncan.
