x crashes after update to -current


Hi,

I recently upgraded to -current from 13.0 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. It seems to have strange problems since then. The X crashes after sometime if I am running a video in firefox (flash based, say youtube) in the full-screen mode. When I am not in the full-screen, it seems to run just fine. A similar thread was posted a few days back (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...rashes-846796/) and I thought I had overcome the problem using one of the suggestions provided, but apparently, I just had not run full-screen videos ever since (and I thought it was solved!).

My system details:
Intel x3100 in-built graphics card (965GM)

When I had 13.0 (stable) earlier, I seemed to have no such problems. Probably now my drivers are not rightly installed. I am posting contents of my Xorg.0.log (after a crash) and lspic -v:

Xorg.0.log (the one I got after a crash - when I was watching a youtube video in full-screen):

I should mention that, the crash happened when I was running a video chat on gmail in full-screen mode too. I have the Xorg.0.log for that too, if it is going to be helpful. Also, one thing I noticed was that even Ctrl+Alt+b_space does not work when this crash happens!! (so, I have to go ahead and reboot the system using the power button everytime) This I find very strange, since if at all, I should have been able to kill the process and restart X.

This seems to be an extraordinarily long thread, but I have put in whatever I thought could be useful info I should give. I will appreciate any help in resolving this issue.

Thanks a lot in advance!

you really need to do a good search because the slackware forum has gone through a serious xorg change and it is well documented.here is the forum.
and make sure you always read this before upgrading to current. and you also have to remember if you run current you need to edit your /etc/slackpkg/blacklist.conf to allow it to upgrade your aaa_elf read this upgrade.txt to understand how to upgrade from a mirror or cdrom. and this hints and tips text
if using slackpkg update slackpkg install-new and slackpkg upgrade-all
get rid of that ndswrapper for broadcom in current the open source driver works good. the sta driver.
you also read the text and uninstall kde experimental pkg.

You may spot some old, obsolete, or discontinued packages. If so,
you can remove these using 'removepkg'. This command will get rid of
the packages which became obsolete since Slackware 13.0:

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the reply. I did do google searching (but obviously not good enough or with the right search strings I guess), but had never come across that thread. As it turns out, I had missed the last step of upgrading the aaa_elflibs in the end. Unfortunately this did not help resolve my issues. As suggested in the thread (and many others), disabling the compositing did not help resolve the X freezing issue (when running some firefox video full-screen).

My glxgears gives 55-60 fps and I have read a lot of posts saying this is not the right measure etc. etc. Maybe that's all I get for this graphics card!!

Disabling the hardware acceleration for flash player does help, however. Though still, I have weird problems, such as the maximizing not working 1st time (I have to redo the maximizing second time and then strangely enough, it works!). I can live with this (with a small bit of dissatisfaction, of course ).

Thanks again for your post. I will be hopefully able to keep away the freezing from now on.

glxgears is not a benchmark. Depending on what video driver you are using, the FPS may be locked to your vertical refresh rate, which would be somewhere around 55 to 60 Hz in most cases.
