Description Ronny Vaningh 2003-04-15 19:32:14 UTC

Description of problem:
X crashes on my machine after a few minutes

Caught signal 11

I'm running a MGA550 in dual head mode with the standard driver (not the drivers
from matrox)

X starts fine but after a few minutes it crashes with signal 11.

This card was working fine under RH7.3
I'm now running my old TNT2 card in it and no further crashes.

I notice that there is at least 100 Mb less memory used between this single
headed session and the dual head session with the MGA550

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Startx
2. wait a time
3. when using runlevel5 i'm logged out (result of crash)

Actual Results:  Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

Expected Results:  Normal session as it was on the same machine running RedHat 7.3.

Please attach as proper bugzilla file attachments, your X server log file
and configuration file from after a server crash using the link below.

You're also recommended to file this bug report in XFree86.org's bugzilla

problem.  You should also attach the requested files above to the upstream
bug report as well.
