Slackware-current: X crashes after the last xorg updates.


After upgrading to xorg-xserver-1.6.2 X crashes when dragging windows.

The video card is integrated intel mobile 945. Changing xf86-video-intel drivers does not help. Neither disabling DRI in xorg.conf modules section or driver section.

Works only with VESA driver.

Yes im experiencing a similar problem with latest xorg-server. Whenever a window is minimzed and set to "notify" (flashing), clicking on it in the taskbar causes X to crash. I can reproduce 100% using pidgin.

Can someone please upload the xorg-server 1.6.1 here?

hi,

run

ldd /usr/bin/Xorg

this will give you an output similar to this;

linux-vdso.so.1 => (0x00007fffc63fe000)
libXfont.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXfont.so.1 (0x00007f1dbe101000)
libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0x00007f1dbdeff000)
libfontenc.so.1 => /usr/lib/libfontenc.so.1 (0x00007f1dbdcf7000)

librt.so.1 => /lib/librt.so.1 (0x00007f1dbd208000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x00007f1dbceaa000)
libfreetype.so.6 => /usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6 (0x00007f1dbcc29000)
libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/libz.so.1 (0x00007f1dbca0e000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00007f1dbe379000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007f1dbc7f2000)

if you find something missing on the right side then you found what's causing the crash.

have fun,

So, you're suggesting in your case that /lib/ld-linux.so.2 is causing the crash?

I think theres is some problem with pixman 0.15.16.
I tried downgrade to 0.15.14, and it stops crashing. Can anyone else confirm that?

Almost every time minimize/restore button was pressed the whole system hanged (alt+sysrq). Downgraded to 0.15.14 and no lockups until now.

I experienced these issues. However, it became apparent in FreeNode ##slackware that this was due to my lack of an xorg.conf file specifying that the Intel driver needs to enable Tiling support, as so:

Section "Device"
Option "AccelMethod" "UXA"
Option "Tiling" "True"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "intel"
VendorName "Unknown Vendor"
BoardName "Unknown Board"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection

Now I know you don't need an xorg.conf due to the way the new X server works, but you can specify at least this much in order to get it working. I am using the latest and greatest (as of right now) Slackware64-13.0-rc1 with the stock generic-smp kernel.

Also, be sure to disable compositor for now.

This makes mine work. I have this card:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

Thanks to mrselfpwn for the help! 8-)

Hmm, I think we are talking about 13.0-rc1+ in this thread. The head of the Changelog.txt should be:

Thu Jul 16 19:25:26 CDT 2009

or

Fri Jul 17 21:05:16 CDT 2009

I have crash with composite (kde 4.2.4), with different version of pixman, intel driver and mesa
Without composite crashed

In my pc, notebook with intel x3100, downgrade pixman couldn't fix the problem :-(

Crash on logout, when active/disactive composite in kde system settings, and in other situation
Glxgears not show image with mesa 7.4.4

Downgranding all packages in changelog Thu Jul 16 19:25:26 CDT 2009 and installing intel driver 2.7.99 by rlw is all ok
Only auto brightness lcd is broken
With old packages mesa 7.4.4 are ok

For the similar problem I posted in different thread regarding experimental radeon driver lockup when dragging window, I can confirm that changing pixman to 0.15.10 resolved my issues.

in my notebook (wit intel x3100) pixman don't resolve. Crash at X logout, composite only with XRender but very slower, 3D only 7.4.1 mesa liba, etc... I downgraded all xorg packages

in my desktop (with nvidia 180.60) all ok with last packages

pixman is here:

http://cairographics.org/releases/

I haven't crashed since yesterday - I re-ran slackpkg update, etc., and re-installed a couple of suspect packages, but I'm doing the pixman thing as we speak....

Thanks to all for the info.

cheers,
