Trio3b Posted April 1, 2012 Report Share Posted April 1, 2012 KDE 4.6.5 on PCLinuxOS 2012 ( 2.6.38-8) on Toshiba A305 videocard Intel Mobile 4. This software runs fine on a Compaq CQ50 with same graphics card.default install wants to use i810 and later driver, specifically i915 Random xserver crashes - black screen/ working mouse- BEFORE and after login and during sessions. Cannot reproduce but has happened over the past few months about every 5th login and every 2 hrs when in a session. Many various error messages in /var and in .xsession-errors- too many to list but mainly regarding DBus disconnecting or cannot be connected. Things tried: -With and without desktop effects enabled -Intel and Xorg drivers -with and without xorg.conf (this seems to provide best results) -Different kernels (pae,bfs, slightly older, slightly newer including latest) -adding i915.modeset=1 to boot option -delete ~.kde -Adding Terminate server="True" to kdmrc After a crash Ctrl+Alt+F(1-6) gives terminal. can login but cannot startx - error is either "xserver already running" or "cannot connect to server" Ctrl+Alt+F7 gives me a text boot screen hung at "starting display manager" Ctrl+ Alt+F8 returns me to the GUI session with all apps open as if nothing happened If I hit CTRL+Alt+Bckspc immediately after crash I get GUI login. If after I launch another terminal session, it does nothing. Any ideas appreciated. [moved from Software by spinynorman] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
