Another one experiencing more or less random X craches after the latest batch of X updates on the 16th july.

Using Slackware64-current with Kde - Dell XPS 1530 with Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT and proprietary nvidia driver. It was very stable until those last updates.

Will try the pixman downgrade and see how that works.

Go to one of the mirrors
. Look in individual/lib
Such as:here

Modify a standard slackbuild. for 64 bit something like:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Slackware build script for pixman

PRGNAM=pixman
VERSION=${VERSION:-0.15.10}

CWD=$(pwd)

  SLKCFLAGS="-O2 -march=i686 -mtune=i686"
elif [ "$ARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then
  SLKCFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC"
fi

set -e

rm -rf $PKG
mkdir -p $TMP $PKG $OUTPUT
cd $TMP

cat $CWD/$PRGNAM.SlackBuild > $PKG/usr/doc/$PRGNAM-$VERSION/$PRGNAM.SlackBuild

mkdir -p $PKG/install
cat $CWD/slack-desc > $PKG/install/slack-desc

cd $PKG
/sbin/makepkg -l y -c n $OUTPUT/$PRGNAM-$VERSION-$ARCH-$BUILD$TAG.tgz
Adjust for your particulars. Maybe comment out the slack-desc part or create file from:
Code:
# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description.  Line
# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|'
# on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in.  You must
# make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct.  It's also
# customary to leave one space after the ':'.

Downgrading pixman fixed my problems with missing icons and KDE crashes as well.

Changelog for x86_64:

Sat Jul 18 16:04:24 CDT 2009
x/pixman-0.15.10-x86_64-2.txz: Reverted to pixman-0.15.10. There seem to
be problems with all the newer versions we have tested, for example broken
compositing, or missing icons in the KDE4 tray.

hax0r at phoronix tells us:
Code:
This has nothing to do with pixman, it's a bug within xserver
specifically exa that was already fixed in git master,
if you are experiencing something different compile all of your code
with -g and -O0 flags and attach Xorg pid to a gdb to get a
traceback when assertion strikes. http://cgit.freedesktop.org
/xorg/xse...93b2a28f6de316, 
http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22642.
and
Code:
Recompiling xserver shouldn't be that bad if you get all of the necessary 
prerequisites. The 35758544813f156eaac28844e693b2a28f6de316 commit 
will be making its way into 1.6 stable branch, it is on the wishlist:
http://wiki.x.org/wiki/Server16Branch, as an alternative you 
could try patching your distro's current xserver with this particular 
commit.
We can certainly git xserver code but it isn't obviously broken down the way slackware has the packages (different for xserver, xvfb, xnest...). Probably requires reading and trial and error. Anyone have insight on slackbuilds for these?

If you have mirrored (rsync) the current branch, look at 'slackware-current/source/x/X11'.

I think you may mail this info to Pat or rworkman.
