Re: X dies while I'm not looking...
More to the point, from /var/log/xdm.log :
Fatal server error:
fbdevUpdateColormap: FBIOPUTCMAP failed (Function not implemented)
When reporting a problem related to a server crash, please send
the full server output, not just the last messages
xdm error (pid 1347): Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly: 1
You're right about the fix. I wonder if this just occurs with 'video=ofonly'
or it afflicts video cards operating in native mode as well.
Probably the former as the ioctl shouldn't fail in the latter case.
I wonder if this still happens with the current XFree86 CVS (or any 4.x
version for that matter).
