Xorg crashes at random
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 5, 2010
Hi, Ive been having some problems with a Compaq computer with Lubuntu installed.
The problem is that Xorg crashes at random displaying a white distortion on the screen and it usually doesn't let me go to a terminal and i have to force a shutdown.
the same happened when I tried to install Ubuntu but worse.
Another side effect is that lubuntu at boot up displays its logo in 16-bit colors and then goes to normal colors.
how can i diagnose the random crashes?

Hello, I posted previously about problems with my computer freezing.
Now at least it is freezing, and going to a screen where it lets me know what the error is. It gives me the option of running in "low graphics mode", but it doesn't work.
I have an Intel video card and a Flatron W2230S monitor.
The last entry in the error log is:
Fatal Server Error:
Failed to submit batchbuffer
Any thoughts? What is a batchbuffer, anyway?
Xorg crashes with backtrace or freezes
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 4, 2009
Strange how it happened, I just restarted and it wouldn't go. I execute startx on my slackware box as usual: If I leave the mouse still when it's starting up it freezes and my desktop stares at me begging for reboot; if I move it around, it returns to console with the following output:
Mesa update to 10.2.6 seems to fix xorg crashes with radeonsi on slackwarecurrent
- date: August 23, 2014
for everyone who uses a R9-270X graphics card and had crashes with slackware-current -> Mesa-10.2.6 seems to fix that ... i tested it within the last days and had no crashes yet ...
@Pat: this would be a possible update :-)
[SOLVED] 14.1: Xorg crashes on ATI 3d rage pro cards
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 3, 2013
Out of 22 machines at home, 16 of them have an ATI 3d Rage Pro video card. On all machines with that video card, the X system in Slack 14.1 crashes with a segmentation fault shortly after startup. It appears to be the mach64 driver that crashes. Through a ton of googling, I see that the same thing happens in other distros, too.
I installed the driver from the 14.0 distribution, but the newer server rejected it. Then I also installed the xorg server from the 14.0 distro, but then it choked on another mismatch or 2.
I looked in modules.dep, but that didn't mention any dependencies for these things. Does anyone know the list of things I need to downgrade in order to use the working driver from the 14.0 distro?
ps: The hint in 'changes & hints' about disabling composites has no effect.
pps: Both 'Xorg -configure' and 'xorgsetup' also crash on these machines.
Xorg crashes on touchpad movement
location: linuxexchange.com - date: November 23, 2014
I'm using Debian GNU/Linux 7.7 with Xorg installed from backports. Today I connected by computer to a TV via HDMI. After I unplugged it every movement of the mouse using the touchpad leads to a crash of Xorg and puts me back to the login screen.
In the .xsession-errors I found
X server connection broke
and some errors of other programmes complaining about missing X connection.
I assumed that X crashes so I employed the technique descibed on Debian Wiki to created a backtrace of my X. But unfortunately it doesn't segfault or anything but just exits "normally" with exit code 0177.
[Inferior 1 (process 6356) exited with code 0177]
The Xorg.1.log file states
[ 534.150] Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.
I searched the web for that exit code but only found old bug reports from 2009.
Slackware 14.1 Xorg random crashes
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 20, 2013
All, I could use some help to stabilize my new Slackware installation. I was running Slack64-14.0 just fine on my HP Mini but decided to jump to Slackware64-14.1 when it came out. I did a fresh install, my usual configurations, was up and running -- but I am experiencing random crashes of Xorg.
I am running XFCE as my windows manager/desktop. I don't really understand the crashes and can use help in figuring it out. I did try upgrading Xorg to 1.14.4 and backed XFCE back to the stable release of 4.10.0 using the build scripts on the Sources DVD and binaries from the respective sites, but neither, nor both, make a difference.
My video is:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D4xx/D5xx/N4xx/N5xx Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D4xx/D5xx/N4xx/N5xx Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
and here is as much of the initial error I was able to trap (small screen on the mini):
Crashes after starting Xorg always just at first time
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2013
I have been experimenting crashes on my Ubuntu 12.04 always at first start of Xorg right after boot. Then automatically starts again and no problems at all after hours of being used.
A collateral symptom is that I cannot change to a text terminal using CTRL+ALT+Fx at the first start neither. It simply ignores these keystrokes. But after it crashes and I login again, they work as expected.
I have an nVidia GeForce card, using last version of propietary driver, and this is my .xsession-errors:

Kernel crashes when loading Xorg with fglrx Page 2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 28, 2009
Okay I tried xorg with a merge of your configuration and mine and your configuration alone - exactly the same results.
It is now obvious to me that the problem is within the FGLRX driver, the Kernel and/or the Xorg program, but not the Xorg configuration file.
Are there any more config files I should know about?
UPDATE: I found an error in boot.log with fglrx installed that does not happen without fglrx -> something with DKMS:
.xinitrc crashes my Xorg
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 31, 2004
I am using slackware 10.0. Recently, I have my Xorg crashed when it is being fired up (returned to console). I tried to figure out why, and the solution is no file should be named .xinitrc.
Interestingly enough, there is only 3 sentences inside. I commented all of them still I got the same problem.
I 'cat' the Xorg.0.log, looking for err msg, tough, none!
When I remove/rename it, X works properly again!
Any idea on that?
