View Full Version : [ubuntu] xorg crash when using svn commit or import to remote server

August 28th, 2008, 11:39 AM
Okay, I know this is totally bizarre, like when I pet my dog, the refrigerator explodes, but I've seen it happen many times, and I'm totally convinced.

Hardy Heron 8.04
Thinkpad t60p
LSCPI (relevant bits):
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express PCI Express Root Port (rev 03)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M56GL [Mobility FireGL V5200]
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82573L Gigabit Ethernet Controller
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02)

Steps to reproduce (for me):
*Doesn't always happen, and the same thing can happen when not uploading via SVN, but this seems to trigger it about 80% of the time.

1. Use compiz (doesn't happen in metacity)
2. run an svn ci or svn import, doesn't really matter, but it seems like the longer I use svn to upload data to a server, the greater the chance of bailing.
3. X server crashes. It sometimes restarts, sometimes does not. If I move to tty1 and try to gdm restart, it will totally hang the computer. Cannot access any interface gfx or terminal.

I'm not sure, but it seems this is also part of the problem (from dmesg):

I'm sure everyone is just going to say I'm a looney, but I just lost an hour of work, so I've got to post something.
