    Karmic randomly logs out

    Basically I'll be working at my computer and suddenly the screen goes black and then goes to the login screen. This started when I upgraded to Karmic, so I have a feeling that might have something to do with it. It tends to happen when I'm using Firefox, but I use Firefox a lot, so I don't know that it's symptomatic. It has happened at least 4-5 times, and seems to be happening more often than at first (it happened last night and this morning).

    Here are some logs from this morning's crash--it happened at 9:45 and most of them didn't have much else this morning.

    Code:

    Re: Karmic randomly logs out

    sounds like x crashing down and restarting, usually due to less-than-perfect drivers. what chipset?

    Re: Karmic randomly logs out

    I have the same issue. It have had it happen while using Firefox or while playing Aisle-riot solitaire. I am using the on-board video (82Q35 Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:29B2]) on a P5E-VM DO motherboard. Driver: i915.

    This never happened before the upgrade to Karmic.

    Re: Karmic randomly logs out

    My experience is exactly the same (interesting AisleRiot Spider Solitaire may have something to do with it).

    Also NetworkManager crashed one time, which prompted me to start Bug #480949. Then I confused the problem reported here with that crash, so I incorrectly described several cases of this problem in that bug report.

    The latest occurrence showed this in /var/log/syslog:

    Nov 27 20:23:52 desktop acpid: client 1167[0:0] has disconnected
    Nov 27 20:23:52 desktop acpid: client connected from 3493[0:0]
    Nov 27 20:23:56 desktop bonobo-activation-server (dge-3538): could not associate with desktop session: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-P35QJC09nj: Connection refused
    Nov 27 20:24:14 desktop pulseaudio[3648]: pid.c: Stale PID file, overwriting.
    Nov 27 20:24:18 desktop pulseaudio[3648]: module-x11-xsmp.c: X11 session manager not running.
    Nov 27 20:24:18 desktop pulseaudio[3648]: module.c: Failed to load module "module-x11-xsmp" (argument: ""): initialization failed.


    I have an Intel 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller, and the i915 driver, on a Dell 0P301D motherboard in a Vostro220ST.

    Re: Karmic randomly logs out

    I can confirm that, at least in my case, that bug is a correct description of the problem. I did not initially know why I was getting logged out, but discovered by using the apport notifier link on my panel that it was a problem with x-org.

    For me, the guaranteed trigger of a crash/re-login was extended use of AisleRiot Solitaire, although there may be a Firefox association too.

    One additional thing which I have noticed is that as I continue to use AisleRiot my memory utilization steadily climbs (primarily the "in use by cache" category).
    If I close AisleRiot and re-open it, the memory allocation returns to normal. If I never let my memory utilization go above about 90% it appears that I can postpone the crash indefinitely. I cannot think of a legitimate reason for AisleRiot to cause an increase in cache usage, since I don't think it does much if any disk access during play.

    I may find that I need to stop and restart Firefox too, but that has not been necessary yet.

    Hmmmm... That's interesting. I played AisleRoot for about an hour yesterday without any problem whatsoever.

    Re: Karmic randomly logs out

    I am having the same problem. It's completely random other than the fact that Firefox is open each time it crashes. I also have an nVidia video card with dual screens. It generally happens when a page that has flash content is open. I can't find anything in any of my log files to tell me what may be happening. It's a pain though. It happens about once an hour while I'm using Firefox. I did not have this problem before upgrading to Karmic. I have a friend that has the same problem. He uses an intel video card.

    Re: Karmic randomly logs out

    Interestingly, I haven't had any problems since I write the original message. It never was an hourly thing for me, so I can't really tell if something worked, or it just hasn't had a chance to crash.
