Description Onno Witvliet 2007-05-18 16:44:42 UTC
Description of problem:

I'm running Fedora 7T4 (on a HP Compaq nc8430). After the latest batch of yum
development updates, my X server crashes on startup with the following backtrace:

0: /usr/bin/Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x6d) [0x47f5ed]
1: /lib64/ [0x2aaaab17f620]
2: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers// [0x2aaaac81c2c1]
3: /usr/bin/Xorg(InitOutput+0x9ad) [0x46320d]
4: /usr/bin/Xorg(main+0x275) [0x433e65]
5: /lib64/ [0x2aaaab16caa4]
6: /usr/bin/Xorg(FontFileCompleteXLFD+0x231) [0x433319]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

Additional info:
The machine has an ATI Radeon Mobility x1600 video card.

X server worked with the f7t4 release software

Xorg.0.log with glibc version 2.5.90-21

I've downgraded the glibc to the original F7T4 version (2.5.90-21). The X
server no longer crashes, but just stops with:

FreeFontPath: FPE "unix/:7100" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing

I hope this helps

Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2007-05-26 14:53:35 UTC
Probably DUP of bug 231006 ? There is something screwed up about this card. We
will investigate.

Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2007-05-26 18:26:58 UTC
Yeah, think it is a dup.  Really wish I knew how to reproduce this.
