Backtrace in gdb after crash
This is on ubuntu 10.10 after upgrading from 10.04.
Every time i try to call emac, the x-server crashes, and I have to login again.
Following the advice, I get the debug-version. Attached the gdb output.
The backtrace points to line 943 in dix/dixfonts.c
err = (*fpe_functions[fpe->type].list_next_font_with_info)
(client, fpe, &name, &namelen, &pFontInfo,
Can you display the registers?
A few lines of the asm code before and after the instruction that
caused the fault would be interesting too.
Here is another report of the problem, also on an AMD 64 box:
Please attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file

Yes, it looks very alike to my crashes
I have the same problem after upgrading from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14.
If you are using the rpmfusion binary NVIDIA driver then you
probably have this bug:
It crashes with the nouveau driver too. But removing the following line from xorg.conf seems to help:
is the same bug.
