Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 654286
Konsole crashes X after upgrade from Fedora 13 x86_64 to Fedora 14 x86_64 (with three cards per computer)
Last modified: 2012-06-14 18:37:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Any time I try to start Konsole, X crashes. NOTE: I am using gnome, standard fedora install, but with konsole and it's dependencies installed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Install konsole in F13 and verify that it is working.
1. Upgrade from F13 to F14 with preupgrade.
2. Attempt to start konsole in F14 and X will segfault.
My Xorg log https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=461048 -- it is attached to a different bug as I was unsure of the cause of the X crash until I tried to start konsole again after the initial crash.
A vast majority of the time, X crash -> kernel/driver bug

I see nvidia binary driver in play here too. :(
reassigning where crash occurs -> Xorg
I will test with nouveau tonight then. Any chance that the nvidia driver is what is causing the slowness in the bug that the attachment I linked is actually attached to?
there's a good chance, but I've no idea what the other bug # is?
So after some testing, I have run into and discovered the cause of a problem I reported on Fedora 13.
Nouveau does not like the multi-card setup in my machine. It does not like it so much that it causes udev to hang during device detection. Removing all but 1 of the 3 cards in my machine allows the machine to boot with nouveau enabled, at which point I no longer get the crash and no longer get the slowness in 654280.
Now, I am currently running one monitor on this dual-head card, so before this gets closed as invalid, I think some tests are in order.
Firstly, I need to enable the second monitor on this one card and see if Konsole crashes.
If not, then some redhat/nouveau guy needs to fix nouveau to work on a multi-card setup again, so I can properly test the konsole crash with all 3 cards installed.
Waiting on bug 654280 comment 9
I have the exact same issue, also with the NVIDIA driver.
The driver works fine for me until I run cssh (clusterssh)
then X crashes with the same messages. Easy to recreate.
I also cannot run the nouveau driver due to bug #540922.
I've got one dual-port GEForce. The lspci says it's a:
nVidia Corporation G94 [GeForce 9600 GT] (rev a1)
I'm running with two monitors attached.
Is this http://awbsworld.de/archives/37 have any relevance to this bug?

I think this is related and fixed in xorg-x11-server build in koji (which is not submitted as an upgrade for f14 yet):
* Tue Nov 09 2010 Adam Jackson <email@example.com> 1.9.1-3
- xserver-1.9.1-pxtc-crash.patch: Fix crash with Xinerama enabled
Try to fetch it from koji and see if this resolves the issue
Still waiting for an opportunity to test this. Sorry for the lack of input
I've gotten 2 displays on one card working with nouveau. Konsole does not crash.
Still waiting for an opportunity to test this further. Sorry for the lack of input.
I am no longer able to test this as I have changed companies. This can be closed.
Fedora 13 is EOL. This can be closed unless someone has the issue in F15 (F16 as of June 2[4,6]).
