Description Ole Christensen 2008-03-25 04:03:04 UTC
After updating to 96.43.05 the X server always crashes when I log off from KDE. Version 96.43.05 works fine.


0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x85) [0x80c7c57]
1: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
2: [0x1]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

Seems to be an upstream issue in the nVidia drivers. But 96.43.05 is marked as stable in portage and I think it shouldn't. And 96.43.01 should stay in portage until this issue has been fixed upstream.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log into KDE
2. log off from KDE
Xorg server gets a segfault and screen is mixed up. Possible to recover by blindly typing "/etc/init.d/xdm restart".

Actual Results:  
Xorg server segfault (signal 11)

Expected Results:  
X server staying alive

Just for the records:
vanilla kernel
GeForce2 MX/MX 400
Athlon XP
VIA KT600 mainboard
