Re: X server freeze/crash problem
I can rlogin into the laptop. The kernel works, interestingly, it is a
bit bogged down. Top shows no process consuming cpu, but load is high.
After a bit it setteld, I can even type this email.
ps -ax shows no "X", or xinit process running.
I thus tried to run "startx" from remote. It recovers and I get a
working X session!
Then I run the incriminated application, again, it crashes. I get on the
xinit: connection to X server lost
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
wmaker warning: got signal 1 - exiting...
then high CPU usage which I cannot trace if not when looking at "uptime"
or "top", no particular process consumes it however. After a while it
goes down and everything is fine again.

using NetBSD current kernel and current userland, I can get X11 freeze in a
strange way. I don't know if this happened with 5.1 release, because the
intel card did not work, that is why I switched to current.
I open an image display application (LaternaMagica of GNUstep) and load
fairly large images to display.
The whole X server will feeze, display total garbage made of rainbowed
stripes except for the mouse cursor which displays fine, but frozen. The
kernel is not frozen, I can power down the laptop by its power button.
I cannot however type anything and switch consoles.
There may be a bug in the application (which however, works on other
computers, even less-powered ones) but it should not be able to knock out my
Just curious, but if you are sshed into the laptop does that session
continue OK? Can you restart xdm/X?
