Description joel 1999-04-28 16:27:35 UTC
The X  server  crashes under the  current RawHide release.
This has been tested with both a SparcStation 4  and 5, with
a  cgsix framebuffer. You can crash the server immediately
by  running 'x11perf -all' and moving the mouse. It  seems
that this problem is related to  compiling the kernel with
egcs-1.1.2. If you compile the kernel with the  RH 5.1
egcs-1.0.2 then the X  server is stable. Here is the
'/proc/version' for the buggy kernel:

Linux version 2.2.5-6 ( (gcc
version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)) #1
Fri Apr 9 01:07:10 EDT 1999

The following is for the kernel that  runs the kernel

Linux version 2.2.5-6 ( (gcc version
egcs-2.90.27 980315 (egcs-1.0.2 release)) #6 Tue Apr 27
