Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 142221
xorg still crashes on fc3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
I have upgraded to xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.21 as suggested in bug 139260.
My system still crashes at random intervals (could be days between crashes). Seems
like the crashes occur when I'm using kmail, but this could be accidental.
[root@feathers X11]# uname -a
Linux feathers 2.6.9-1.681_FC3 #1 Thu Nov 18 15:10:10 EST 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/
[root@feathers X11]# rpm -q xorg-x11
This happens on a system with Intel 845.

Your problem looks like a duplicate of bug 142240. Is your bug
triggered by login/logout or shutdown? What kind of crash do you see?
Hard lockup, spontaneous reboot? Can you ssh into the machine when
it's crashed? Could you attach /var/log/message after a crash? Thanks.
> Is your bug triggered by login/logout or shutdown?
No. I've been logged in for hours or even days when it occured.
However, as far as I remember, I was using KMail every time it
At one occasion I know for sure that I was marking text in a mail
composing window, using the keyboard.
Kmail 1.7.1 (Using KDE 3.3.1-2.2 Red Hat)
I don't use graphical login.
> What kind of crash do you see? Hard lockup, spontaneous reboot?
Screen lockup. The bottom 2-3 cm of the screen gets garbled (like
attachment 104038 [details] of Bug # 133010). Other parts of the screen looks
like it did before the lockup.
I was not able to use the keyboard nor the mouse.

I looked into /var/log/messages when the last crash occured, but
didn't find anything useful. I have attached a part of the messages
file from around the time when the lockup happened.
I have added Option "NoAccel" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf since the last
lockup, and so far it seems like the problem has disappeared.

It happened again. This time it happened at 02:28 in the morning
(according to the timestamp of Xorg.0.log). I was not using the PC at
Screen Saver (Slide Show) was running, and the PC hung during
transition bewteen 2 images.
I know for sure that kmail was NOT running.
I was able to ssh into the machine.

Please upgrade to the xorg-x11-22.214.171.1243 (or newer) rpm packages in
Fedora development (rawhide), which contain numerous bug fixes
since the 6.8.1 release. This will be finalized as 6.8.2 very
soon and released as an update for Fedora Core 3.
If the problem still exists in the new version of xorg-x11 in
rawhide, please file a bug report in X.Org bugzilla located at
http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component, detailing
the problem with specific steps to reproduce, and attaching
the config/log files to the X.Org report as you've done above.
Once you've filed your report in the X.Org bugzilla, if you paste
the URL here, Red Hat will track the issue in X.org bugzilla and
will review any fixes that become available for consideration in
future Fedora Core updates.
Thanks in advance.
Setting status to "NEEDINFO" awaiting upstream bug report URL, and
test results of using xorg-x11 from rawhide.
Assuming the problem is resolved in our latest erratum of 6.8.2 for FC3
and closing bug as "ERRATA" due to lack of feedback.
