X server restarts - I think - no regular intervals

Hi,

Just finished the installation of Arch on my new computer. The most important part of the new computer is the AMD HD7850 graphic card. I am running KDE.

When I first installed it, I had the KDE 4.9.5 on it. However, I noticed that after a certain amount of time, the X server simply restarts and I am thrown back into the KDM login window. Now I am not 100% sure that it is the X server crashing mostly because I don't see anything in Xorg.0.log.

I am using the latest (13.1) AMD's proprietary drivers. I enabled the kde-unstable repo and updated to 4.9.95 (I love it by the way), and while I find no bugs with KDE, the issue persists. I also downgraded the xserver to 1.12 (though 13.1 supposedly supports 1.13), but it still happens.

Now there's nothing in the Xorg log, but there's something in a file called kdm.log. Here:

I am not versed into this, but I see that it's complaining about DBUS not running - I'm on systemd, shouldn't that mean that dbus must be running?

I would also like to emphasize that KDE is running fine and that the X restarts at no regular intervals - so sometimes after 5 minutes, some times after an hour, etc.

Before I try the OSS drivers, is there anything else I could try? According to the Radeon feature matrix, my card is very, very poorly supported.

Thanks in advance

/usr/lib/libpixman-1.so.0

I would try a git checkout of pixman. Or a previous version.

Thanks. Cloned, compiled, installed. Now we wait and see.

Re: X server restarts - I think - no regular intervals

Well, I won't mark it as solved, since it still happens (even after downgrading pixman), albeit not nearly as often. Reading some forums online with the people having the same problem, everyone is reporting bizarre fixes (like one person mentioned the problem went away after he installed ttf-dejavu package).

Re: X server restarts - I think - no regular intervals

Ignore previous post. Now it happens many times per day. Sometimes I can invoke it - I've noticed that every time I click on "Configure Kontact", X crashes, and also when I try to run a kpartsplugin application within Chromium... I am beyond confused.
