kde freeze


If i can solve this i may know what is wrong with my system.

Once logged into kde on slack 10.1 if i try and crtl + alt + 1-6 etc and then back into 7 in any order the display looks like it corrupts and the system hardlocks. since i am new to this stuff i cant say i know how to assess something like this. Can any one help?

I dont belive this is relevant but i AM running the ati drivers i can try an run m,y backed up default xorg.conf and see how teh system responds.

the only errors i can see when i do ctrl alt 1 is this:

QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used

message is repeated 4 times.

[EDIT]: using my defalt generated xorg.conf i can jump in and out of KDE, i do see the same artifiacting but then it cleans up and i am able to use it again.

maybe post here your " device " section of the xorg.conf that you use for the ati ( fglrx) driver.

i know there are many settings, so it might be solved by changing one or two of them.
someone who uses the ati-drivers can take a look at it then.

Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "yes"

maybe try to change that to "no".
i read that it's better to use the kernel's agp driver.

yeah i set these two:

Option "BlockSignalsOnLock" "on"
Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "yes"

to this

Option "BlockSignalsOnLock" "off"
Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "no"

and it still does the minor shredding and then locks.
