When the Xserver is reset from the logout of KDE or
GNOME, the system blackscreens with no keyboard a
cess at all requiring a hard reset of the system.
I'm using XFree86 CVS 4.3.0-20030218 built by
Mandrake for the 9.1 Cooker distribution.
As near as I can guess (since no info is found in either
my XFree86.0.log nor dmesg) I think that when the
logout occures it shuts X11 down, and then restarts it to
start KDM. However, when it shuts the card down, the
system locks due to the drm kernel module getting in a
race condition with the PCI bus. However I could be
barking up the wrong tree here...
My systems specs are:
AMD Athlon XP1700+
256 MB RAM
ASUS A7V266-E Motherboard
ATI All In Wonder Radeon 7500
Distribution: Mandrake Linux Cooker 9.1
