View Full Version : [ubuntu] "Fatal X error"

June 20th, 2008, 12:45 PM
I've made a few posts about random restarts, but this time I found an interesting entry in the system log.

Jun 20 12:39:46 scott-laptop gdm[5491]: WARNING: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0

Any suggestions on how to stop this happening? (I'm running Hardy on a 64-bit dell inspiron 1501)
