View Full Version : [gnome] Xorg/gnome keeps crashing

October 22nd, 2009, 06:13 AM
I like to make use of at least two workspaces (I have a big monitor - or else I would use more). Anyway, I had my workstation setup with 9.04 for a while and just recently, I started getting an Xorg hang/crash when switching workspaces. This is to the point that the ctrl-alt-backspace wouldn't work to restart Xorg (and yes it was enabled by default on 9.04). I decided that it would be a good idea to try and upgrade to 9.10 to see if that fixed the problem. Sadly no. It only seems to happen when I have some programs open and have been doing work for a while. Also, sometimes it will actually reboot my system due to this and others it will just hang and I will have to reset by button push.

Thoughts? System is a Dell Optiplex GX620 with a GeForce PCI-E card.
