Description Trever Adams 2008-10-15 19:37:56 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a laptop with a 9600 Radeon Mobile. Since moving it to rawhide, it locks up whenever GDM (or X) starts. I have looked at the logs, it doesn't appear the system died, just X. No logs in /var/log/X* or /var/log/messages from X.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest version (not at the machine)

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide on 9600 based machine
2. Start X
Actual results:

Expected results:
Functioning system.

Any tools or help in getting useful debug would be appreciated.

You mean you have /var/log/Xorg.*.log? It's hard to believe. Could we then get at least complete /var/log/messages and /var/log/dmesg as separate uncompressed attachments to this bug report, please?

Thank you

I will try to get these off the system today. Yes, I believe there are those logs, I guess they could be old ones. GDM starts, but before the full login screen is completely drawn, X has died.
Comment 3 Trever Adams 2008-10-20 20:13:05 EDT
Ok, if I wait until the mouse cursor appears and then alt-f2 I get gdm up fully, but login locks X.

I have Xorg, dmesg, and messages. I will attach them now.
Comment 4 Trever Adams 2008-10-20 20:14:28 EDT
Sorry, somehow I missed messages. I will get it shortly. However, dmesg also doesn't show a message that the command dmesg did about an mtrr not being alined.

Comment 7 Dave Airlie 2008-10-20 20:29:10 EDT
can you try the latest rawhide kernel when it appears...

it contains some fixes for r300 hw.
Comment 8 Trever Adams 2008-10-21 18:05:38 EDT
I am seeing one crash that I cannot duplicate. It was upon closing Firefox, all of X (and seemingly the system) crashed. It seems unrelated.

Thank you for your fantastic work. I believe you can mark this closed.
