gdm_slave_xioerror_handler crashing X
Last modified: 2012-06-20 09:23:36 EDT
Description of problem:
X Crashing with the following GDM error in messages
Mar 21 14:47:19 andromeda gdm: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error -
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Random, I can go days, or weeks between crashes, usually happens when I am
switching between workspaces but not always.
version fc3 -> fc4 (my bad)
Do you think it's gdm that's causing the crash or something else crashing X
that's making gdm give the log message?
What version of xorg-x11 do you have installed?
I am running xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2
there are no messages in syslog other then the gdm one, is there a way I can
turn up the verbosity on X in hopes of logging something more usefull next time
I have upgraded to fc5 running
and am still having crashing issues sporadically, usually when switching between
the 4 destops pages.
On RHEL 4.4, up2date. Same gdm error in messages. Fixed by:
rpm -iv --replacepkgs /var/spool/up2date/xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.EL.13.37.5.i386.rpm
There is, perhaps, a more elegant way that would show what was corrupted
Are you still seeing this Chris?
Sorry please close this issue I no longer have any old boxes all my boxes are
RHEL5.2 and f9 and do not show this problem.
