Slackware 12 and the Savage chipset
 
Hi All!

I just installed Slackware 12 onto a machine that ran version 11.0 without a flaw.

Now, the screen goes black when I log out and I have to issue a ctrl-alt-delete and restart to get a usable machine again. Is there a bad savage driver in 12.0? As I said, 11.0 worked fine.

I am also getting a lot of segmentation faults when running KDE after closing windows and such.

Any fix as of yet?

I suspect you have mis-configured Xorg. Perhaps you should take a look at xorg.conf and edit it or re-run xorgconfig or xorgsetup?

Slackware 12.0 and the savage driver
 
No, I did not mis-configure xorg.conf. I ran X -configure and edited all of the necessary parts as normal--just like I did in Slackware 11.0. (Slackware 11.0 ran great).

Others are having the same problem so this is more than an individual occurrence. I was just wondering if there was a fix yet.

'#Load "DRI" seems to make the system more stable but then I lose 3d acceleration and all that.

Hope there is a patch soon...
