Description Adam Golebiowski 2009-03-09 03:49:40 UTC
With an upgrade to xserver-1.6.0 my xinerama setup causes segfault of xserver.

Config file: http://pld.pastebin.com/m545f79a3
Xorg log: http://pld.pastebin.com/f302a9d50

I start X session with nothing but xterm (happens on gdm login screen too) and press any key, I get following backtrace:

0: /usr/bin/Xorg(xorg_backtrace+0x3b) [0x8123173]
1: /usr/bin/Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x4d) [0x80bb10d]

17: /lib/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xee) [0xb7b746ee]

If I first do a mouseclick, then I am able to log in / use xterm for some time. Eventually, it will segfault again with the same backtrace.

Disabling Xinerama helps.

I am ready to do some git bisection (1.5.3 worked fine) if that would help.

Similar crash here, with xinerama and Rotate CW:


I get a very repeatable crash if I hold any key and make it repeat. I also get a crash if I restart my fvwm (which normally does not restart X).

Updated patch thanks to Julien. The original patch had some unnecessary noise.
Comment 8 Adam Golebiowski 2009-03-25 11:00:19 UTC
Xserver no longer segfaults for me with this patch applied.

Comment 9 Jared Bunting 2009-03-25 11:03:06 UTC
I can confirm this - no segfaults anymore for me either.
Comment 10 Peter Hutterer 2009-03-26 21:35:04 UTC
Nominated for 1.6.1, reassigning to keith.
