Description Andy Lawrence 2009-08-18 10:11:32 UTC
Description of problem:

This happened a little while ago:


Seems to be happening again (tried 3x, same result) on a different website and most likely something different.  This was confirmed by request on fedora-devel.

Please save your work and visit (tech website), with Firefox:


Screen freezes, mouse has jerky movement, vt switch fails.

F11.i368 all updates as of today, nothing good in /var/log/messages


Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) Subsystem: Toshiba America Info Systems Device ff02

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

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2009-08-18 12:27:04 UTC
Cannot reproduce here, so we need as much information as you can provide. Let's start with this:

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available), /var/log/dmesg, and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Comment 2 Jef Spaleta 2009-08-18 15:59:16 UTC
I can confirm....
I'll get you my logs as well. I think ssh still works so I can remote in and pull the logs.

xorg.conf from affected F-11 laptop

Okay the logs and the xorg.conf file were scp'd off the affected system while it was experience the problem without a reboot.  If you need me to reconfirm with a different xorg configuration just let me know.

Comment 10 Andy Lawrence 2009-08-18 20:42:48 UTC
Please see the attached files.  I do not have an xorg.conf and included some of the old files as it was split about the time of the lock-up.

Any further info/debugging by request.


Comment 11 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 18:36:29 UTC
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

[This is a bulk message for all open Fedora Rawhide Xorg-related bugs. I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

Comment 12 Andy Lawrence 2009-11-05 18:50:54 UTC
I can no longer reproduce, closing bug as fixed/closed/now works for me.
