Thanks. The linux kernel pm2fb maintainer also pointed that one out
to me. It looks very similar to what I see, although there are some
differences. For a start, I'm not running udev. Do you still get the
problem with udev turned off?
Mine also crashes immediately after loading the pcidata module, but
I don't get the "Caught signal 11" error: it just stops with a blank
screen. Switching to another virtual console and back again gets me
back to my session, and it shows that X stopped with a "peer
disconnected" error (or something like that: haven't yet written down
the exact error).
It certainly does look like we have basically the same problem
I'm doing some debugging of my own. Yesterday I built the X
packages with some trace statements inbuilt, so I can get some idea of
where it's going in the PCI initialisation stuff. I'll try it tomorrow
when I get back to work (it's a holiday here today), and I'll see what
happens. I'll post back the results.
