Description Hans de Goede 2000-01-30 17:47:51 EST
Xsun crashes on a CGSIX framebuffer.
To reproduce:
-do something which generates lotts of video access find / in an xterm
 for example, the trick is that it keeps updating the display
-switch to console

This happens if I use one or both the CGSIX cards in this machine.

Side note:
X doesn't lite the led of the compose key when you enter a compose
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-02-04 10:01:59 EST
what architecture and type of sparc are you using.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2000-02-04 18:57:59 EST
Sun4c architecture: SPARCstation IPX (4/50)

With 48M ram, and SBUS cards, one CGISX buffer onboard, one in an SBUS slot.
