Description David Monniaux 2002-12-07 08:15:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
[XFree86 4.2.99 CVS 0.20021126.8]

If the machine is left running alone for several hours, it runs the screensaver.
The system then freezes. I don't know whether it's actually X related, it's
still a hypothesis.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Gnome with the random screensaver setup
2.Leave machine alone for 8 hours

Actual Results:  Machine is frozen: it does not do anything if a key is pressed,
including Control-Alt-F1.

Expected Results:  It should have come back from the screensaver or switching
VCs depending on the key.

Additional info:

This is likely related to bug #77345

No feedback, means I can't do squat about this problem.  2 way communication
is needed in order to troubleshoot issues.  Closing bug WONTFIX.
