Description

This test case tests whether, when using the Nouveau driver, X can successfully shut down and restart.


How to test

  1. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the nouveau driver. If you are using the live image, ignore this step
  2. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again, in console mode. When the boot prompt appears, hit a key to allow you to change the boot options. Hit the 'e' key on the default entry, select the kernel options line, hit 'e' again, and add simply a space and the number '3' to the end of the line. Then boot with that change
  3. The system will boot to the console. Log in as a normal user (if using the liveCD the username is: 'liveuser' no password will be needed)
  4. Start X:
    startx
    Verify that it works as usual
  5. Log out from your desktop environment. This should stop X and return you to the console. Check there are no unusual errors
  6. Start X again:
    startx
    Again test that it works as usual

Expected Results

  1. X should work properly both the first and second times it is started
