XFree86 Bug Help


I am very close to getting my system up and running perfectly - the only problem is that the system completely locks in almost every session.

I would really appreciate if someone could help resolve this problem. Below are the logs from the syslog and mesages. Thank you in advance.

SYSLOG

Mar 25 21:28:40 IINET kernel: atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x7a on isa0060/serio0).
Mar 25 21:28:40 IINET kernel: atkbd.c: This is an XFree86 bug. It shouldn't access hardware directly.

I'm not sure, but I would say it has to do with how your video card is detected by the system.

Your video card is fine. agpgart is the driver for AGP and it appears to be okay. Those syslog entries look to be the culprit. Unfortunately I don't know what's it's doing or why. Good luck though.

Thanks for the support guys. This is very frustrating because I have everything else working perfectly! I installed the latest NVIDIA driver successfully. But the problem still occurred. I couldn't pin it down to something I did. I was just clicking between windows then it crashed. I am using FluxBox, but also have the problem with other WMs.

The crash was at 23:23:39 so ignore the irrelevant items above.
