RE: XFree crashing on kernel 2.4.28
one (propably helpful) additional information:
I tested the 2.4.28-kernel preX-patches subsequently.
2.4.28-pre1 does not boot on my system and ends up with a watchdog reset, however, 2.4.28-pre2 already shows the bug (no X11). Therefore I assume that something died on the way from 2.4.27 to 2.4.28; AFAIK it has been mainly Dave Miller to introduce changes on Sparc; thus, could I kindly aks Dave to review code he introduced?
If I can supply any additional information, please let me know. By the way, the fb-file in /proc is empty on 2.4.28, but contains "0 Creator" in a functional kernel. The next thing I will test is the debug version of XFree86.
Thanks a lot,
From: Jurzitza, Dieter
