OpenBSD 3.7, X.org 6.8.2, Fujitsu/Siemens E6646 i686 laptop,
ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY video chipset. The problem is that the X server
crashes on startup with a signal 11. XFree86 188.8.131.522 works fine
on the same system.
I am using a Fujitsu/Siemens E6646 Lifebook i686 laptop.
The video chipset is an ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY.
I have just (re)installed OpenBSD 3.7 (which includes X.org 6.8.2)
on this system.
The problem is that the X server crashes on startup with a signal 11.
I have tried a number of different ways of generating /etc/X11/xorg.conf
but all give the same behavior (signal 11 crash on startup):
* X -configure
* xorgcfg -textmode
* copy working XFree86 XF86Config for this same system (see below)
Attached are an OpenBSD 'dmesg' (showing the video & other hardware
as detected by the kernel), an /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and the /var/log/Xorg.0.log
from 'startx' with that xorg.conf.
The same system (booting from a different disk partition) runs
OpenBSD 3.5-stable's XFree86 184.108.40.2062 fine (attached are the 3.5-stable
dmesg, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config, and /var/log/XFree86.0.log).

Xorg log file
As noted in the bug text, OpenBSD 3.5's XFree86 220.127.116.112 works fine
on the same system. This attachment shows the OpenBSD 3.5 kernel's
detection of hardware (including the video chipset).

Patch I'm applying
This is the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config file
I use for OpenBSD 3.5's XFree86 18.104.22.1682 on this
same system (which works fine).

starting with the 22.214.171.124 snapshot, on linux systems, the X server can print
its own backtrace when it crashes. please confirm that these bugs are still
valid with 126.96.36.199 or later, and if they are please attach a the server log
from the crash.
I have the same problem with a ATI Radeon IGP 340M card and OpenBSD.
Today I tryed to compile a snapshot on OpenBSD 3.7-current (from 22 june).
188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 won't compile on OpenBSD but 220.127.116.11 compiled.
It has the same problems and the only warning I get is:
(WW) RADEON(0): LCD DDC Info Table found!
and then the same:
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting.

gdb log (including traceback) from running X server
This is the gdb log when following the instructions on
in the section "Debugging with one machine", subsection "Version 1".
Unfortunately, it seems my X server was built with only limited
debugging symbols, so many addresses aren't resolved. :( :(
I realise that the gdb traceback I've just submitted isn't very useful
(not enough debugging symbols in the X server binary).
I will try to compile a new X server from source with full -g debugging support,
and if successful, I'll submit a new (& hopefully more informative) gdb traceback.
