Question X crashes on exit


Hey all -

I was having this problem before I installed Dropline 2.6 yesterday, in case anyone is wondering.
Whenever I exit Gnome to go back to the terminal, either to reboot or just to end X, the screen goes all weird on me and the system freezes. I have to reset to get it to do anything. I looked through /var/log and checked out Xorg.0.log but there was nothing relevant in there that I could find. I also looked at .xsession-errors but couldn't really pick out when errors where happening on starting X or when ending X. I hope this is some easy fix in xorg.conf such as a resolution setting or something, but I don't think it is. Are there other logs I can be checking for exactly the errors I should be looking for? Or would you like me to post the logs I mentioned above? Thanks ....

- Jim

Here's some relevant output from .xsession-errors in regards to nautilus:

And just for fun, here are the errors and warnings from my most recent Xorg.0.log:

Code:
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such device)
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:2:0:1) found
(WW) fglrx(0): could not detect XFree86 version (query_status=-3)
That's it. The only warnings / errors in the log. I'm stumped.
Please let me know if there's anywhere else I should look ... thanks!

- Jim

No one wants to take a shot at this? At least some thoughts on which logs (other than .xsession-errors and xorg.0.log) I should be looking at?

Problem solved. Silly FB_RADEON was enabled in my .config .... got rid of that and everything is awesome. Note to new ATI card users ... do *not* enable FB_RADEON. It's not worth the trouble.

How are you using fglrx with Xorg server?
ATI's latest release is for XFree86 4.3 ?

also, a footnote:
do NOT blithely go forth with the default-installed X config. your safest route is to boot up to terminal,
xf86config
and go through the full config setup. you might be surprised at what works faster, better, and quits locking up/wierding, etc. the defaults on install aren't necessarily what you might need.

oh, yeah. you'll have to do all the 'caressing' stuff in /etc/X11/XF86Config AFTER you do this,(Monitor ranges, IMPS/2, etc).unless you're a real masochist and want to dive into /etc and do it ALL by hand.

luck -O.

I'm not sure why it works, it just does. Before I installed Dropline, I backed up my good XF86Free-4 config. After it was installed, I started X and it worked just like it had before. I've been running the fglrxconfig since then (as well as editing it by hand when necessary) and it's been working fine. I use the:

Code:
pre-install fglrx /sbin/modprobe "-k" "agpgart"
in modules.conf and it still works the same. I hope that answers your question ...

But I'm just astonished that the fglrx for 4.3 work for 4.4 or Xorg ...

Interesting.

I will try it out.
