  • X is sometimes crashing


    first I want to say that I am surprised how good the proprietary works now. I had concerns before I buyed a Gigabyte GA-MA78G-D3SH motherboard with a hd 3200 onboard graphic adapter but after many positive reports about the new driver I have buyed it.

    Unfortunately since I have installed the new board and the driver X sometimes suddenly crashes after it has been running a long time before without problems.

    The logfile contains:

    0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x6d) [0x4720bd]
    1: /lib/ [0x3f5c22f110]
    2: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f6018fedc13]
    3: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f601900e026]
    4: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f601900e74f]
    5: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f601900fd12]
    6: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f601901093b]
    7: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f6018f82f7a]

    9: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f6018f7a919]
    10: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f6018f7944b]
    11: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f6018f71edc]
    12: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ [0x7f6018f72205]
    13: /usr/bin/X(InitExtensions+0x93) [0x4a9543]
    14: /usr/bin/X(main+0x29f) [0x430def]
    15: /lib/ [0x3f5c21c4ca]
    16: /usr/bin/X(FontFileCompleteXLFD+0xa2) [0x43029a]

    I have installed the latest driver, 8.7, and have a vanilla kernel, OS is a debian etch amd64 system.

    I have seen many others with similar problems, but their X does not start at all, for them a solution seems to be to set the aperture size to 256MB, but I already have 256MB.

    Has sb. an idea?
