Description Eric Donkersloot 2008-12-24 07:04:13 EST
Description of problem:

Xorg crashes after some amount of usage when compiz-fusion is enabled (xorg-x11-drv-i810 driver). This behaviour is not present when compiz-fusion is disabled.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Enable compiz-fusion
2. Work, browse the internet, play...whatever
3. Within 30 minutes xorg will have crashed, logging in remotely and killing xorg deadlocks the machine completely
Actual results:

When xorg crashes, I still can login remotely. However, when I try to reboot the machine or kill xorg manually, the machine deadlocks. No event is written to syslog whatsoever.

Expected results:

Normal operation

Additional info:

Comment 7 Eric Donkersloot 2009-03-16 08:53:56 EDT
Looks like adding this option to xorg.conf solved the issue, I have been using my laptop with compiz enabled for hours now, without a crash:

Option    "ExaNoComposite"  "on"
