Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71604
Chips C&T Xserver locks machine
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:33 EDT
Description of Problem:
I have a Toshiba Tecra 730XCDT laptop, using the Chips C&T 65550 for video. Upon starting X with the default XF86Config-4 file, after a few minutes
X locks up, usually when using the mouse. Setting: 'Option "noaccel"' prevents the lockup, but hurt performance.
I think this problem has been tracked down and fixed, and is due to broken Silken Mouse support. (email record at
When will the patch be implemented into the XFree86 rpms? Thanks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.2.0-8
How Reproducible: Every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X, using default (autodetected) "chips" driver
2. Move the mouse around and wait a few minutes.
X and the computer locks up. Cannot switch between virtual consoles, cannot ping it.
X and the computer should continue functioning.
The chips driver in rawhide has bugfixes from XFree86 CVS included
and will be in the next RHL release. An erratum release of this
may also occur for 7.3 in the future.
