Description Jos van den Oever 2000-10-17 09:24:19 UTC
On my HP Vectra VL6/266 Series 7DT with Cirrus card the XFree server can
freeze up on random events, but quite often.
One cannot switch to the console withc ctrl-alt-f1 etc. and cannot telnet
to the machine to kill the X server. The reset button on the front of the
machine does not work anymore! The only solution is to pull out the mains
and plug them back.
This problem is not there with XFree 4.

If the problem is not in XFree86 4, then it isn't considered a bug.
Use XFree86 4.x and there should be no problem.  We only use XFree86 3 for
cards that do not work at all with 3.x.
