i810 drm bug: After logout X Window, X crashes
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:48:03 EST
Description of Problem:
Whenever I tried to logout from KDE or GNOME, the X crashes. Couldn't go back to
the login screen. Then it comes up with Xconfigurator program, I selected the
defaults settings for my monitor and video card, it also couldn't startup X for
testing. If I switch to virtual console, do a reboot and it can start X well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
XFree86 Version 4.2.0 (Custom Build: 4.2.0-52) / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to GNOME
2. Menu -> logout
Back to GDM

Crashed X log
I am probably seeing the same problem. I can start X once, but when I quit, I
get a blank text screen (on Alt-F7), Alt-F1 takes me back to the text console,
but X crashes with a similar error dump if I try to restart it. This was
happening before I upgraded to limbo as well, though I only noticed it recently,
so maybe it was introduced by one of the 7.3 updates.
A quick check shows that the problem goes away if I boot from the 2.4.18-4
kernel update from 7.3, so I think the problem was introduced between 2.4.18-4
and 2.4.18-5, which roughly tallies with when I first noticed the problem on
Sorry about the double comment (an accident with the 'back' button).
I have noticed there is a kernel oops in /var/log/messages corresponding to
stopping X, the ksymoops'ed version is attached.

ksymoops'ed crash when closing X
I have been trawlling through bugzilla and I suspect bug 61172 , bug 67448 , bug
67601 and bug 67723 are all related to this one.
Oops, I meant bug 67112 .

I have the same problem. My system is based around the i815e chipset.
This is what the log says:
(EE) GARTInit: AGPIOC_INFO failed (Invalid argument)
(EE) I810(0): AGP GART support is not available. Make sure your kernel
agpgart support or that the agpgart kernel module is loaded.
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server error:
no screens found

This problem is resolved internally and will be released in an upcoming
kernel erratum. I've closed all dupe bugs caused by this issue as dupes
of this one so we can track further dupes on this bug ID.
Kernel with the fix is also avail for testing currently at:
The 2.4.18-5e kernel works for me - X can be restarted.
Will it be merged upstream?
the patch was sent yesterday to the DRM XFree people and to Alan Cox for
upstream kernel inclusion
Is there a chance that the bug fix for this will be pushed out within the next
we're working on finalizing the erratum,but want to do decent QA...
Has this been resolved in Rawhide? It seems fixed in 2.4.18-6 (Valhalla).
Appears to be fixed in null (at least for me).
wasn't this fixed with the 2.4.18-10 errata that went out last week
yes it was
I wonder why our errata thingy didn't automatically close this bug as fixed in
errata as it's supposed to do
