PostPosted: Wed Jul 14, 2004 11:23 pm    Post subject: X.org Lockups Reply with quote

For the last couple of days my X seems to randomly lockup. All i can do is move the cursor but no keyboard input and no clicking on things. It seems that this has only happened while browsing with Firefox 0.9.1 (but most of my time i am browsing teh web so this might just be coincidental).

I dont know if this helps but it firefox 0.9(.1) is VERY unstable for me.

I'm not posting any info becaus ei don't know what to post. Please post with what info will help you.

Thank You

Yes, I have noticed this too. From time to time, while Firefox is open, while I'm compiling stuff and browsing, my KDE will lock up solid, but the mouse moves fine.

This has struck me as odd because my computer has never locked up for any reason in the past.

The only thing I could think of was a kernel issue. But I havnt had time to compile it again (CK-Sources). But now that you mention Firefox, every time it has crashed has been when firefox and/or thunderbird was open...

Very wierd indeed....

this may be a shot in the dark but are you running gkrellm?

I had mysterious lockups in xorg after installing it, after removing it (or just not running it) they ceased.

Well, actually, yes. I have it running.

Let me play with it and see if that may be the issue... I just reinstalled Gentoo, and so far so good (Knock on wood).

Well see what happens...

I have the same problem here:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=197897&highlight=

But I run xorg on my desktop fine. (desktop is nvidia laptop is ati)
I never thought xorg could be the problem for the mentioning of ssh doesnt work neither does switching to terminals.

I do NOT run gkrellm on my laptop though.

Similar problem here, I am experiencing random X freezes, about once per two days. It usually happens when I am doing something with the mouse, like scrolling in a web browser (galeon), or clicking somewhere. But there was at least one incident when it started while I was away for some hours.

I can still move the mouse cursor, but X does not react. The keyboard is locked, I cannot switch to a text console or zap X with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace. Even when I log in from remote, I cannot do a chvt to a text console. top shows X consuming all CPU power.
The keyboard is not locked completely, when I do a SysRq-B, nothing happens at first, but the moment X is killed from remote, the system reboots.

I am using xorg-x11-6.7.0-r1, it also happened with 6.7.0. I can't remember if it happened with xfree-4.3.0-r4, but I think so. My kernels are 2.6.7-r11 and 2.4.23-ck1.
CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O2 -pipe -fforce-addr -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops -fprefetch-loop-arrays"

I am not using firefox, but gkrellm.

Is gkrellm the culprit, i cant check wahst happening because i cant login from remote pc.

EDIT:Actually im not sure that this has something to do with the lockups because it appears multipel times in my logs.

I am assuming that you have an ATI graphics card, as I had the exact same problem, and it's to do with the official ATI drivers, I cannot find the topic that helped me with the problem, perhaps you'll have better luck finding the topic now you know what the problem is - but the basics of it is, when the ATI driver is called upon to do a lot of refreshing, it sometimes enters a loop that it can't get out of, and thus becomes unresponsive.

I'm not sure why the mouse cursor still moves, but I'm sure there was an explanation in the thread.

Anyway, the only way to fix it, until ATI fix their drivers, is to use the ATI drivers built into the kernel, I'm using them, and they appear to be working fine, I don't notice any speed difference between these and the official ATI ones, even during 3D acceleration.

Hope that helps.

Could it be GCC related?

I was having similar problems where X would crash, and firefox would randomly close.

I updated to GCC 3.3.4-r1 and recompiled, and haven't had ANY problems!

It crashed again but this time i SSHed into the pc and it seems that X was taking 99.9% cpu. After 'kill -9' ing it the system seems to be ok without a reboot.

It seems that I have the same problem, but I still couldn't find the source of the problem.

Well, we are using the same web browser, and the lockup only happened when I was using Firefox.

I was on xorg-x11-r1, ati, and gnome with firefox and thunderbird. Now I'm on xorg-x11-r2, nvidia (newest masked drivers), and firefox&thunderbird.


I have never enountered this problem though.

Why doesn't everyone having these mysterious lockups post detailed system specs, including misc things. I'm sure we can compare all your systems and find what variable you all share.

I wonder why X suddenly locks the computer up.

I hope someone could analyze these files below, and tell me if something doesn't look right.

dmesg: w3bu53r.tripod.com/files/dmesg.txt
kernel config: w3bu53r.tripod.com/files/kernelconfig.txt
xorg log: w3bu53r.tripod.com/files/Xorg.0.log.txt
xorg config: w3bu53r.tripod.com/files/xorg.conf.txt

I just had another annoying lock up, and I don't know what I should do in order to ssh into my computer which is located behind a router.

I wonder why mouse scrolling caused X to lock up, and it always happens while I'm using Firefox.

System Specs:
P4 2.4
512 DDR RAM
Gigabyte Sq800 MB (im almost 100% sure)

And at least on my computer it has nothing to do with the mouse wheel because my mouse doesnt have a wheel.
