I'm having some trouble after installing Slackware 64 13.37 on my Thinkpad Edge 14. Everything is working pretty well, except I'm getting random unexplained X crashes. I get dropped straight back to the text console (same effect as hitting crtl+alt+backspace) with a message that X11 has seg faulted.
I've attached the Xorg log.
I tried following the steps on this website
, but still experienced the crash.
To make X.org stable...
Make a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/intel.conf with the following contents:
Option "DRI" "false"
Then make a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/disable-composite.conf:
Option "Composite" "Disable"
Also, you will want to disable the screensavers under X.org (or at least choose safe screensavers). Some of them tend to crash. You may just set Slackware to just blank the screen if you need a screensaver.
This laptop was running Debian 6 and Ubuntu for about a year without similar crashes so I think the hardware itself is still fine.
root@thinkpad:/home/neil# lspci -v | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Suggestions would be most welcome. I need this computer to be stable, it's my work laptop..
