Re: Freezes at logout

Version of X ?
Which WM/DE are you using ?
Did you close all apps before logging out ?


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Freezes at logout

I have 1 suggestion that might help to determine where the problem lies :
edit /etc/inittab and make runlevel 3 the default.
then login as regular user and use startx/startkde to get into kde.
If the logout problem doesn't occur this way, the problem is in kdm.

Re: Freezes at logout

I have same problem,culprit seems to be kdm. I found in /var/log/error.log message "Archie kdm[1530]: Can't lock pid file /var/run/kdm.pid, another xdm is running (pid 1493)" which reappears every five minutes. When i log out before its first appearing (=> in first five minutes after logon) everything is ok and i have fully working kdm, when not ,system locks up. There is also one thing, i configured /etc/inittab identically as is written in wiki and every boot i got this message "Archie init: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes". Btw i am not running archie livecd, it is only coincidence of names.

Re: Freezes at logout

Which video driver is xorg using? I had those problems with fglrx binaries for my radeon card but not since I switched to xorg radeon.

Re: Freezes at logout

Try

Section "Device"
    Identifier                          "rad"
    Driver                              "radeon"
EndSection

in /etc/X11/xorg.xonf, remember to change to

Device      "rad"

in the screen section and probably a color depth of 16, and load radeon rather than fglrx in rc.conf modules

DRI works with the radeon driver if that's what you're asking. The performance will be less but it might be enough for your needs.  Anyway, you could always try it to see if it fixes your problem. If that's the case, you'll then know that it's an ATI drivers/configuration problem.

Re: Freezes at logout

sounds exactly like an ATI driver problem to me, I too switched from fglrx to radeon drivers to prevent the exact same issue.
