Description James Hubbard 2009-11-10 18:04:28 UTC
Description of problem:
X crashes when using nomodeset.  Originally, I had only seen this on websites.  However, I started getting this behavior when editing images with gthumb.  I was able to edit one image by using the resize option.  When I try to edit another image, I get get the crash. It doesn't matter what image now.  Any time I right click an imagne and choose open with gthumb a crash occurs.  

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

How reproducible:
Once the crash happens, it happens everytime the same way.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Going to http://www.newegg. will do this everytime.
Actual results:
X crashes and returns the login screen

Expected results:
Expect to be able to view websites and open applications.

Additional info:
Added an attachment from Xorg.0.log with seg fault.

Do you have any issue with KMS enabled ? Just so you know UMS is not a priority for us.

Comment 4 James Hubbard 2009-11-10 21:45:11 UTC
Yes.  See this bug report.
