xorg startup/exit infinite-loop

Reported by: derekathomas@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…

Description

I just installed xorg (sudo port install xorg), and therefore also received xorg-apps and xorg-server. No errors occurred during installation. Whenever I try to run the xterm (eg. "xterm" or "gnuplot > set term x11" ) the new x11 from macports opens and closes in an infinite loop. This cannot be stopped in the activity monitor or through killing a process. Also, the computer will refuse to shutdown or restart. The only way to stop this loop is remove /opt/local/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc This will then cause fatal error in the x11 the next time it starts up and no more restart. However, it renders xorg useless.

I will also make note that this is OSX Lion. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This is likely a configuration problem on your system since it's not happening to others.

What version of xorg-server do you have?

Can you provide logs? /var/log/system.log ~/Library/X11.*.log

1) attached a sample of the /var/log/system.log that shows the loop and then the eventual finalization after removing the xinitrc file.

2) As far as I know, I have the latest version of xorg-server as installed by macports.

3) Also, my ~/Library does not show any X11.*.log files, but I also attached the quartz crash file.

I was wondering if you think this could be related to conflicting window managers? The xinitrc file I mentioned above (not written by me) starts twm. Although, considering this seems to only occur on my system, I doubt it. Thanks you for any additional help you could provide.

hmm.. yes. Hopefully that will be addressed soon (although soon has been a while now)... if soon doesn't come "soon" I'll do something temporary to work around it better.

For now, do this to get it out of the way: sudo rm /opt/local/bin/quartz-wm
