Description of problem:
My computer is perfect,it runs all of OS include w98,w2k,linux7.0alpha.... 
 With linux7.1 ,every times i logout from kde/gnome ,the computer halted, 
and the next boot will report that the partition has errors and can't 
autorepair itself.
 Same problem happend although i tried to avoid logging out by reset the 
computer instead of logging out.So i believed that X-Window caused some 
kind of critical mistake when it start to boot the GUI.
 if i bypass the GUI and use lon-in-by-text-only then no prob happends.but 
if i use startx,then things would go wrong.
 It happend continuosly,every times,and as a programmer,i addressed it's 
Linux' error,not my hardware.
Please help.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.intsall linux with X in any configuration,
2.Run KDE/Gnomde
3.Logout ,then the computer halted.
4.reboot: the file system badly damaged

You have not given any useful information to begin to guess what
the problem could be.  If your system crashes and you have to reboot,
and it doesn't autorepair, then that doesn't in any way mean the
partition is destroyed.  It means you have to run fsck manually
to correct disk errors.  "man fsck" and "man e2fsck" for details.

Using the link below, please attach your XFree86 log and your
X config file as well. Those are required in order to look into this.
Also provide the output of "lspci -v"

It happend with Genuin Dell pre-install PC too.
When I changed hostname with GNOME's "Network Setting" tool.
My PC crushed completely and it happend several times.

It seems like the tool never changing corresponding names for

Yes, i know what was happening now, that is S3 driver !
I replaced that driver by the one which provided by S3, it works now, but new 
driver has some bugs though.
