Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123387
XFree86 Server aborts with signal 11
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:12 EST
Description of problem:
During stress testing for RHEL4 A2 re0327 on an IBM X255, the Xserver
crashed. I will attach the XFree86.2.log showing the messages leading
up to the failure. I ran this twice and it failed both times within
about 5 hours. The XFree86.2.log files were essentially the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.6
With the stress test I am using, it happened 2 out of 2 times.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up multiple Xterms (6 or more) and give each one a repeating
workload (ls of a large directory, or cat of a large file, or "dmesg")
and let it run until it crashes.
X Server crashed with Signal 11
X Server should not crash

XFree86 log showing messages leading up to server crash
The initial bug report comment indicates that RHEL4 A2 is being
tested, however this bug is filed against RHEL 3, and we have
replaced XFree86 with X.Org X11 6.8.0 in RHEL 4 development for
quite a while now.
Can you test our latest RHEL4 codebase with X.Org X11, and indicate
wether or not the problem is still reproduceable or not.
Thanks in advance.
Setting bug status to "NEEDINFO"
Yes, Mike. This should have been filed against RHEL4 Alpha2. When the
bug was submitted, the reporter did not have access to the 'Red Hat
Enterprise Linux Beta' Product. That has been rectified. We will test
this against RHEL4 Beta1 and report our findings.
This has been tested on RHEL4 Beta1, and the failure no longer occurs.
Thanks for testing the latest codebase, and providing a
Setting status to "RAWHIDE" to indicate the issue is resolved in
our current development packages.
