Slackware 12 random Xorg crash ATI Radeon
I have been using Slackware 10.2 for quite some time, and decided it was time for an upgrade.
I installed Slack 12.0 on a new hard drive and most things seem to work fine, but Xorg locks up randomly. Everything will be working fine and all of a sudden nothing will respond. My mouse still moves, but window manager is unresponsive. I can ssh in to the machine remotely, but there are no messages in Xorg.0.log.
I used xorgsetup to create my xorg.conf file. The video information is as below:
VendorName "ATI Technologies Inc"
BoardName "RV370 5B60 [Radeon X300 (PCIE)]"
The only apps I'm running when the crashes occur are Opera, Firefox, Thunderbird, Konsole and Gimp. I've upgraded to the latest flash plugins, but the crashes didn't seem to be any different before or after the upgrade.
I don't believe it's a hardware problem - I can give specific hardware info if anyone thinks it will help, but the system ran flawlessly under Slackware 10.2. The only hardware area that might be suspect is the power supply, it's an older supply and may be a little low on power, but again, it worked fine prior to the upgrade. In fact, I have one less hd than I did previously.
If anyone has any thoughts on finding the problem, or just making the system stable, please let me know.
