xorg 1.8 crash after applications are reduced in taskbar

Hi

I successfully updated my laptop with xorg 1.8, enabeling me to get rid of xorg.conf file.
But I have a systematic problem of crash/restart of xorg when using Firefox.
No information found in logs (as far as I know).

Here are the steps to reproduce the problem:
1- Open any application.
2- Reduce opened application in taskbar
3- Show app again (clik in taskbar or alt-tab, same thing)
4- X crashes and resart on login

Not much info aprt from that, except I'm on latest KDE with composition activated and I'm using opensource Radeon driver.

No bug report filled currently.

Thanks for any help.

Re: xorg 1.8 crash after applications are reduced in taskbar

do you have kms enabled? try enabling it and see if that helps.

Can confirm the problem with firefox, opera and so on. BUT: enabling KMS solved that problem. So thank you very much anti-destin!

For info, if there is a bug here, better would be to log it somewhere.
Dunno if it is an xorg or radeon driver related bug, or even kde bug (does it occur on gnome or else ?) ...

Re: xorg 1.8 crash after applications are reduced in taskbar

i'm not sure, either (that's why i haven't filed anything yet).

in my case, i was running kde, did an upgrade, and then encountered serious stability issues. typing certain letters into a web browser, copying and pasting files in dolphin, or even moving the mouse around would cause x to crash.

here's my thread: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=99497

unfortunately, with kms enabled, i have serious problems with suspend/resume. essentially, resume works, but i get a garbled screen and flickering and lines everywhere.

Re: xorg 1.8 crash after applications are reduced in taskbar

I'd like to switch back to KMS disabled because I feel it makes my machine slower after some time when enabled.
And I don't think I need KMS so badly.

Anyway, my feeling is that the bug is in xorg... I'll try to have a look at their bugtracker.
