Re: Hard Crash Xserver on Powerbook (Pismo) Sid

Hey I just did an update today at the console, and
starting up the window system after, the Xserver hangs.

There is a cursor but no menu action and no out via function keys,
plus the cursor doesn't move anyway, so I had no choice other than
a hard reset restart (Clover-Option-Power keys).

I can try reconfiguring the server first (I have a very plain system here, just openbox wm with a startx manual start), and/or I can test it by ssh line in case it is just the server/ keyboard hanging.

My macmini here dies whenever I try to launch an opengl application (like glxgears, glxinfo alone is alright though). When I say it dies, its: hard freeze, cannot ping the poor thing throught network and it just stand frozen here until the hard reset.

I didn't have time to investigate, but if you have a composite desktop manager, you may want to desactivate that to see if your Tibook survives the X start up.

Hope that helps,
