Same here with a intel GMA X3100 card (dell XPS M1330 laptop). We see it while
enabling either VGA or HDMI outputs, any resolution, with xrandr or gnome applet.

Downgrading xorg-x11-server-Xorg to makes it
work again.

Comment 4 Andrea Dell'Amico 2008-06-20 12:38:43 UTC
I can confirm that a downgrade eliminates the crash.

Comment 5 Andrea Dell'Amico 2008-07-03 20:32:07 UTC
With xorg-x11-server-Xorg- from updates-testing, it still
crashes the same way.

Comment 6 John Dennis 2008-07-22 22:08:57 UTC
I'm seeing a similar problem, server crashes when using xrandr. server version is:
xorg-x11-server-common- There seems to be at
least 3 bug reports open on xrandr crashing the server (bug 451328, bug 451486,
and this one), not sure if they are dups or not but switching displays is not
fun when you lose all your session apps.

Comment 7 Angel Marin 2008-09-18 16:07:15 UTC
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.5.0-1.fc9.x86_64 seems to have fixed this here.

Comment 8 Andrea Dell'Amico 2008-09-24 08:12:30 UTC
Same here, for i386.

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 01:39:19 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 17:43:50 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
