Description George Billios 2007-08-19 07:38:00 UTC
Description of problem:
I used till now a vanilla kernel which works just fine and tried to
upgrade to but now Xorg fails to start with the following error:

0: X(xf86SigHandler+0x81) [0x80c2d21]
1: [0xb7fc0420]
2: X(NumMotionEvents+0x1e) [0x807f83e]
3: X(main+0x6bf) [0x807195f]
4: /lib/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xe0) [0x41b7cf70]
5: X(FontFileCompleteXLFD+0x1e9) [0x8070a21]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always with and 2.6.23-rc3 also with the nvidia driver

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compile vanilla
2.Start xorg
Actual results:
The above crash

Expected results:
To start Xorg normally

Additional info:

I think this is a bigger problem and not only for the nv drivers, as I said also
happens with nvidia driver. Is there any patch for the fedora kernel that solves
this cause it only happens with the vanilla kernel.

Comment 1 George Billios 2007-08-19 08:59:55 UTC
I found the solution, it seems that after the kernel update the mouse input
device changed from /dev/input/event2 to /dev/input/event1 and the xorg through
this error which is totally unrelated... I assume this should change and give
another more descriptive error and not just crash because the input device
changed, but this has to be reported upstream as I will do. 

Please close this bug.
