Dell Latitude D600 and Suse 9.1 -> X dies without warnings frequently
I have a problem running Linux on my laptop.
The X server suddenly dies with no warning.
I haven't found anything from logs, it just dies.
I thought that replacing the X-server would have helped,
so I have updated from the original XFree86 to the
latest X.org and the same problem happens with that.
In the original Suse configuration the error occurred when
I pressed '~' -character in Konqueror. Every time '~' was
given to the url -> crash. Now it does not do it there anymore
but creating the default .ui -file -dialog in QtDesigner does
it everytime so because of that it is currently quite much unusable.
And it is not the only program. Nearly every KDE program causes
the X to die at some point. I have tried quite much everything,
compiling new Gnome from sources, installing various versions
of KDE (now running the latest 3.3.1) and various X.org versions.
Nothing seems to help.
I am running the X with the default drivers found in it and
have not tried to hack 3D acceleration for the Mobility Radeon 9000
chip found from the laptop because from my experience the
ATI drivers rarely work right - for example I tried installing the 3D
acceleration to my home computer which is running Suse 9.2
and X no longer starts, apparently I need now to manually correct
the X config.
Any ideas what could help? I am going to install Suse 9.2 perhaps
today to the laptop though, but I am fearing that the problem will
remain. It is my work laptop so I would prefer it to be stable and
work most of the time without glitches...
