Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2002-05-23 09:53:48 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020408 Description of problem: When running the SMP kernel, after xscreensaver is active for a while the machine is locked up solid. If the screen is still on (power management has not kicked in) the screen is frozen, if the display has been suspended it remains blank after turning on the screen. Would not respond to CTRL+ALT+DEL, I had to manually turn the machine off. Have not tried SysRq yet. Just noticed this problem as I was running GNOME2 snapshots before (totally uninstalled since). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot athlon SMP kernel 2. Lock screen 3. Wait Actual Results: System froze after a while - I noticed as I had XMMS playing an album and it just stopped after a while - at the end of a song, actually. Expected Results: System runs as normal. Additional info: xscreensaver version 3.33-4 kernel-smp: 2.4.18-4 System kept up to date using up2date

What sort of graphics chip?
Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2002-05-24 09:39:38 UTC
ATI Radeon 7000. I overrode the detected 'ATI Radeon VE' that Red Hat and Windows both detects. Should I try the GATOS drivers? No problem using UP kernel, btw.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2002-05-25 01:42:20 UTC
The Radeon 7000 *is* a Radeon VE. ATI changed the name of the card. So the autodetection is 100% correct. There are some DRI related problems with Radeon on 4.2.0 which are currently under investigation. Try disabling DRI for now to see if that provides stability. Report back if disabling DRI makes the problem go away.
Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2002-05-31 16:15:59 UTC
It does go away when DRI is commented out in XF86Config-4. Hope it gets fixed soon - guess I'll disable the screensaver for now. Thanks, Michel
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-07-26 11:59:42 UTC
Please attach your X server log file, XF86Config-4, and /var/log/messages after a crash/lockup.
Comment 6 Michel Alexandre Salim 2002-07-26 12:38:56 UTC
I'm afraid I cannot at the moment; machine is in storage since I'm interning out of town. Sorry, Michel
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2002-07-26 14:30:22 UTC
If you're still interested in having this troubleshooted/debugged when the machine is available to you again, please reopen the report, and provide the information requested above, and I'll be glad to readdress the issue. Thanks.
