Bug#379480: Upgraded etch; still freezes.
Just updated etch to current today, 2006 Nov 9; some xorg componenets
were updates, but bug 379480 is still present. It is still a
show-stopper, and I manage to get any useful work done on the
system only by running Ubuntu.
I am prepared to help try and solve the problem; I just don't know
where to start.
I could look through the Ubuntu patches as see if any of them look
relevant, but I have not succeeded in finding them -- where are they?
I've tried bot a 32-bit and a 64-bit Debian system -- both had the same
problem. so it's probably bot a 64-bit-cleanliness issue.
I have tried several xservers, all of them have failed in the same way
(I thought that should narrow it somewhat). What server-side components
are *not* part of the xservers, or are shared by them, and affect
mouse events and only some keystrokes?
Is there some way I could start X with various logging or tracing
options to further isolate the problem? Is there even any documentation
available telling me how server-side X is put together so I might gain
some understanding of the situation?
Is there somewhere else I should be posting these questions?
