Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1463
XFree86-S3 126.96.36.199 locks machine
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
Name : XFree86-S3 Distribution:
Version : 188.8.131.52 Vendor: Red
Release : 1 Build Date:
Tue Jan 19 00:15:29 1999
Install date: (not installed) Build Host:
Group : X11/XFree86/Servers Source RPM:
Size : 2364819 License: MIT
Packager : Red Hat Software
Summary : XFree86 S3 server
Using this package the machine locks up completly if I
quit the windowmanager. Everytime. This happens on two
machines which are rock solid with XFree-184.108.40.206. Tested
with several kernel revisions (2.0.36, 2.2.2, 2.2.3).
The used VGA cards are Elsa Winner 1000 Trio and Phoenix
(lspci: S3 Inc. 86C764_1 [Trio 32/64 vers 1)
If you need further informations please let me know.
Oh, the systems are both stock RedHat-5.2 + updates.
Sorry, but I was shooting in the wrong direction. I updated XFree86
and KDE at the same time. Using xdm instead of kdm resolved the
problem. Although I am wondering how it is possible that the machine
is really *dead*. No keyboard, no nothing :(
