Re: XFree crashing on kernel 2.4.28

Colour me doubtful about this as a fix. Its bug report has an XFree86.log that actually appears to scan the PCI bus, then does lots of other things before reporting "no screens found". In contrast, both the logs from the originator of this thread and the XFree86.log in bug #280384 show the crash occurring immediately after loading the pcidata module, with no attempt to scan the PCI bus. That is also my experience, as evidenced by the log in my own post to bug #280384. They don't look like the same problem to me at all.


I have looked more carefully at bug 279436. The fix which Branden Robinson referred to was supposed to take care of the problem on sparc64 when the machine does not have a PCI bus numbered zero. Can those who experienced the crashes please post the contents of their /proc/bus/pci directory? If it looks like this:

$ ls /proc/bus/pci/
40/  60/  80/  81/  devices

i.e. there is no '00' entry, then there is hope, that the patch will actually do something useful. If there is a '00' entry, then we are looking at a completely different problem.
