Hi, sorry if I bother you.
I have a laptop with a ATI Rage Mobility (mach64 chip), with Debian
unstable, xfree 4.3 and kernel 2.6.3.
I added daenzer's package repository to my sources.list
( http://people.debian.org/~daenzer/dri-mach64-unstable/ ) and installed
the mach64 patched packages to enable DRI support and XV.
The drm-modules didn't compile (due i think to 2.6 kernel), so i patched
it again with John Flinchbaugh's patch
( http://www.hjsoft.com/blog/link/Mach64_DRI_on_Linux_2.6 ).
Everything seemed to work well (xv and dri) but if i switch to console
(ctrl+alt+f*) after "some random" minutes after starting xfree, it
(Fatal server error: -Caught signal 11).
If i don't switch, everything is good
I tried to search, but i didn't find any hint.
I hope you could help me.
Thank you very much

You might want to try the snapshots from the DRI site,
but I currentyl see the crash as ewll, especially if while gdm is starting
I hit C-A-F1, X restarts, I currently don't have a network connection or
serial terminal for my laptop at home to debug thr X server to see what
happens, I'm sure it is some hardware state not getting saved somewhere..
Hopefully in the next week or two I'll get a chance to either bring laptop
to work or hook something up at home ..
