Comment 1 juppie 2004-06-10 18:34:07 UTC
I have the same problem too...
But maybe it is because i have an 5 years old machine.
This is my system configuration:
- AMD-K6 II 450MHz.
- 128 MB intern memory
- Ali Motherboard

Comment 2 G. Vincent Castellano 2004-10-20 14:21:19 UTC
Same problem on IBM T23, hardware (from hwconf):

driver: Card:S3 Savage/IX
desc: "S3 Inc. SuperSavage IX/C SDR"
vendorId: 5333
deviceId: 8c2e
subVendorId: 1014
subDeviceId: 01fc

I can't tell what the CPU usage is, though, as I can't switch to a
text console after X hangs.  All I can do is reboot.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2005-03-06 21:49:01 UTC
Why are you putting these unsupported options in the config file?

  ChipId      0x4c4d
  ChipRev     0x64

Don't override ChipId and ChipRev.

Does this problem still occur with Fedora Core 3 with all updates
applied, after running "system-config-display --reconfig"?

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2005-03-06 21:51:23 UTC
juppie, G Vincent:

Both of your bugs sound completely unrelated to the problem
reported in the initial bug report.  You all have different
video hardware.  If you still have these problems in Fedora
Core 3, with all updates applied, please file bug reports for
your Savage issue in X.Org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org


Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-15 14:19:45 UTC
Fedora Core 2 support lifetime has now ended.

Upgrade to Fedora Core 3 if the problem still happens and you think
it's a bug, you can report it in X.Org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org
in the "xorg" component.
