| As someone had stated earlier, X crashes with any prolonged activity w/ glx drivers. This is probably especially true with some framebuffer drivers. Linux for me has never been the same since atempting to mess with framebuffer drivers and OpenGL. Nvidia was the worse for me, but then the problem may have been using an older CPU, and Mandrake’s distro.
But now this same system crashes with the old card (3dLabs Permidia II, no 3d accelleration support for X) and Debian Woody. At least it does fine if I log out and leave it at the gdm login screen, but if I just walk away while logged in with X, it will crash before sundown.
I did not have these problems with XFree86 3.3.6, and are less frequent with 4.0.1 than with 4.0.0.
Hey, were getting there, aren’t we?
