Bug#475112: more info: predictable way to reproduce crash
I found a predictable and reproducible way to obtain this X crash...
admittedly running a non-debian piece of software.
I installed the current linux version 220.127.116.11941 of the Secondlife
client from http://secondlife.com/support/downloads.php , logged to my
Secondlife account, and tried to change the graphics resolution in
Edit->Preferences. X crashes all the times within 2 seconds. As in my
previous post, it is impossible to restart X afterwards. One can just log
into the textual console and reboot the machine.
I experienced occasional crashes of the Secondlife client in the past, but
never induced a full crash of X.
The error log is the usual
Error in I830WaitLpRing(), timeout for 2 seconds
pgetbl_ctl: 0x00000001 getbl_err: 0x00000000
ipeir: 0x00000000 iphdr: 0x7f0000d7
LP ring tail: 0x000036f0 head: 0x00003714 len: 0x0001f001 start 0x00000000
I hope this helps, all the best,
