Just updated to -current...now when screensaver comes on it locks up!


I don't know why this is happening, and I really can't recall how to find any decent error messages. It starts up and goes into X fine, and then as soon as the screensaver comes on it freezes up. CTRL+ALT+Backspace won't kill X here. I have to physically power down the computer to get it back up and running. Any ideas?

Just checked my Xorg.0.log.old and the last line looks like this:
Code:
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
Does this help?

Got it. Recompiled my NVIDIA driver and it works fine. I hope this helps someone else out...
