Description Heiko Baums 2008-11-12 23:32:25 UTC
After my last `emerge -uDN @system @world` during the last two days kde-base/kdm-3.5.9 crashes. Only at the first `/etc/init.d/xdm start` it works.

The screen gets blank, and Xorg seems to be started somehow. But it seems, that it restarts itself several times, then shows the clock mouse cursor and crashes. Nothing can be done. Neither the keyboard nor the mouse react. So it's not possible to shutdown or restart the PC. The PC has to be resetted. The screen stays black all the time.

In /var/log/Xorg.0.log is this error message:

0: /usr/bin/X (xf86SigHandlerf0x7d) [0x80c18fd]
1: /lib/ (ctreef0x89) [0xb7b71ed9]
2: /usr/bin/X (xfreef0x1f) [0x8133bef]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting.

With x11-misc/slim-1.3.1 everything is working well.

I'm using x11-base/xorg-x11-7.4 and x11-base/xorg-server-1.5.2.

For time considerations I currently can't update kde to 3.5.10, and for other reasons I won't update kde to 4.x.

crashes should be reported upstream but since development of kde3 has stopped, we can't do anything. Try to upgrade to 3.5.10 which is also going to be stabilized really soon
