X server randomly crashes since update to Current


Hello,

Since I updated my Slackware to current I'm experiencing random crashes of the X server.
It happens approx 2-4 times a day, that the complete X session ends and I'm back at the text console. Of course all programs, and all unsaved files are gone then (extremely annoying).
I cannot reproduce this, it seems completely random.
I cannot find any indication/error messages in the logfiles nor in the console output.
It does happen both with XFCE and with KDE.

Do you have any suggestions on what I could do to locate or fix the error?
I'd appreciate any suggestions...

thanks in advance.


PS: My system is a PIII-700, 380 MB RAM, ATI Mach64 graphics chip. Kernel 2.6.20.6.

Thanks for the suggestion, but as I mentioned in the original post, there is no indication in the log files...

you know the current is not an official release and is subject to more anomalies & bugs, i would suggest sticking with 10.2 or 11 until 12 is officially released...

              else must be wrong.  Did you read the manual and the FAQ?

looks like xfce and xorg are not cooperating, might i suggest you change your window manager to something really really bacic to see if it is X or xfce that is causing the problems, try switching the default window manger to twm or mwm, and if X works then you know it is xfce not playing nice or just mis-configured, but on the other hand if X wont work with even the most basic window manger then X itself or just /etc/X11/xorg.conf could need editing...
