Description Colin Guthrie 2007-04-21 09:32:30 UTC
Having just packaged up the latest 1.3 / 2.0 versions of server/driver, some users reported crashes when running the new code with there old config.

One user reported that removing the line "Screen "xxx" Rightof "yyy"" solved the crash.  Obviously this isn't needed anymore but it shouldn't crash the server.

Apologies if this is a red herring.

See http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=30361 for a more detailed listing and links to backtraces etc.

The user posted his Xorg.conf here: http://troumad.developpez.com/linux/serveurx/xorg/#L2.1

But the relevent section appears to be his serverlayout which was:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "double"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "SynapticsMouse1" "AlwaysCore"
    Screen "screen1"
    Screen "screen2" RightOf "screen1"
    Option "Xinerama" "on"
Comment 3 Colin Guthrie 2007-04-23 01:34:23 UTC
As someone pointed out, "man xorg.conf" still says the "Screen xxx LeftOf yyy" syntax is OK.... If it has been deprecated it should be removed from the docs ;)

consolidating xinerama crash bugs
