Xorg crashed every time after I switch to another tty


I use a laptop with Archlinux and just installed kde DE yesterday, and I use .xinitrc to start xorg. Sorry I have no ability to provide further information, so I came to ask that is there some common reasons for this situation? I've been search the title in google and found no answer.

It could be a problem with your particular X server, or it could be a problem in KDE.
You could examine /var/log/Xorg.0.log, /var/log/syslog, /var/log/message to see what went wrong with X.
You could also try to change from KDE to twm (windowmanager included in X.org) by editing your .xinitrc
and see if the problem persists.

particular x server? Isn't it that we have the same software of xorg on our PC(assume that we both installed Xorg 1.14) I used to have Debian and Ubuntu on the same laptop, and somehow Xorg never crash if I just ignore the vedio card driver, in addition, I have amd radeon 5730m in my laptop.
I will check that log later.

You may have been using a proprietary driver for your video card (ATI/AMD or NVidia). Since you are using
the Xorg, what kind of Driver is used for the video card ? "vesa"or some accelerated driver (see xorg.conf) ?
Have you tried another window manager than KDE ?
