    xorg questions

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    I have had problems with xorg and xfree86 with this. With all sorts of distros.

    I run Fedora and have a nvidia card. Right now I am running the gpl nvidia driver. But I have had this problem with the nvidia driver also. It seems that x crashes or freezes every so often. Here is my xorg.conf:

    # XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config
    Section "ServerLayout"
            Identifier     "Default Layout"
            Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
            InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
            InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    Section "Files"
    # RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the
    # file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
    # no need to change the default.
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
    # By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
    # the X server to render fonts.
            RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
            FontPath     "unix/:7100"
    Section "Module"
            Load  "dbe"
            Load  "extmod"
            Load  "fbdevhw"
            Load  "glx"
            Load  "record"
            Load  "freetype"
            Load  "type1"
            Load  "dri"
    Section "InputDevice"
    # Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
    #       Option  "Xleds"         "1 2 3"
    # To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
    #       Option  "XkbDisable"
    # To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
    # lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
    # keyboard, you will probably want to use:
    #       Option  "XkbModel"      "pc102"
    # If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
    #       Option  "XkbModel"      "microsoft"
    # Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
    # For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
    #       Option  "XkbLayout"     "de"
    # or:
    #       Option  "XkbLayout"     "de"
    #       Option  "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
    # If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
    # control keys, use:
    #       Option  "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:swapcaps"
    # Or if you just want both to be control, use:
    #       Option  "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:nocaps"
            Identifier  "Keyboard0"
            Driver      "kbd"

    Also I have Modeline commented out but thats because it wont work.

    Any ideas?

    Hi gmoreno,
    I have found this occurs *much* more frequently when I had the framebuffer enabled in my kernel. I also had this happen frequently and when i disabled my framebuffer things got much better, in fact i don't think it has locked up more than once since i did this and it used to be alost every other day.

    Have you tried Option "NvAGP" "number"?
    Check the nvidia drivers readme for more information on it.
