Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Crashes With Intel 82845G

Mar 3, 2010

I've freshly installed Debian Lenny 5.03 with xfce from cd, but I'm having intermittent problems with X. Mostly X will startup fine, but occasionally it crashes. If I'm lucky, it will just shutdown and just return me to the text-mode login. But if I'm unlucky, it freezes completely, such that even the alt-SysRq key combos won't work.

The PC I'm using is a Dell Celeron 1.8Ghz, with

:# lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL
[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)

where I'm using a default xorg.conf file of... [URL]

and the respective Xorg.0.log files are

a) for when xorg runs okay...
b) for when xorg crashes to textmode...
c) for when xorg freezes up completely...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Frozen: Dell Dimension 2400 Intel 82845G/GL/GE Chipset?

Apr 6, 2010

I've seen a bit about the display being frozen on intel integrated displays, but I do not see the answer anywhere. Does anyone know how to fix this problem: Ubuntu 9.10 boots and runs just fine for 10, 20 or even 30 minutes performing variety of tasks. Then, without warning the display is frozen. The mouse can move the pointer just fine, but I cannot interact with the desktop and the machine must be shutdown by holding the power button.

I've observed this while playing a Kpatience game, general surfing of the internet, and view ..... videos. One time it happened when the display powers off after being idle, but this is not consistently the case. I have tried to make the freeze happen, but am unable to do so (so it seems, anyway). What is happening here? Here are the details of my system:

Software :: Xorg (1.10.1) Crashes With NVIDIA Drivers (275.09.07) On Debian (grml)

Jun 24, 2011

I'm using the most recent version of Xorg that is available in the Debian repository (unstable) and it flashes the NVIDIA logo and crashes the whole computer immediately after. Ctrl+Alt+F[0-9] do nothing when this happens.

I've tried reverting to an older NVIDIA driver, but they either cause the same issues (27x.y.z) or require version ignoring for ABI (26x.y.z) which leads to a segfault.

I would be fine running vesa for now, but it doesn't support 1366x768 resolution so I either have to deal with a bad resolution or have part of the screen cut off.

Debian :: Xorg Server Crashes At Random Times After Upgrade To Lenny

Sep 14, 2009

I've just recently upgraded to lenny using aptitude (following the instructions on All went smoothly, and almost everything is working fine.I have had my X server crash twice since then, both times when I simply doubleclicked a running application. There is some indication of problems in the Xorg.log file, but it's not helpful to me -- can you help me understand?

Debian :: Can't Get High Resolution With Vesa Xorg Driver (Intel 82845)

Feb 20, 2011

With the upgrade to Squeeze and the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel, my Dell GX260's 82845 video chip suffers from the documented intel driver bug (freezes within a few minutes). I tried to fall back to the vesa driver, but am only able to get 640x480 resolution. The monitor is an LG L1720P.

I turned off kernel mode setting (via /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf), and modified xorg.conf -- added Modeline entries (from gtf) and
additional Mode lines to try to force resolution. Relevant portions of xorg.conf, dmesg and Xorg.0.log are shown below.

Debian Installation :: X Server Crashes On New Install On Intel I855 Graphics Card

Sep 13, 2010

I have just reinstalled testing on a Samsung Q30 and I cant get X to start. I am just left with a blank screen and ctrl+alt+Fn does nothing. I had a previous install of testing that worked fine but it might have been running a previous version of the kernel, or I had installed a bug fix to do with 915resoultion that I can't remember about. Booting off a Slax live cd works fine but I have had similar problems with Knoppix and Ubuntu.

I am running LXDE but I previously tried Gnome and had the same problem. Running xander displays cant open display Running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg returns nothing, as does Xfree86 -configure There is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf or installed by default, I have tried running startx with a custom xorg.conf and the automatically generated one from -configure. The automatic one did not include any resolutions and was configured for a dual head set up although there was only one monitor connected.

I thought it may be the same problem as this:[url]

But I have tried following the bug fixes on that site and I have had no luck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 82845G Video - Totem Received X Windows System Error

May 13, 2010

My parents have a 8 yr old computer, and they have been running linux for the last 2 years- our graphics card has been a nightmare. It has not worked right....since we first installed 7.10. In 9.04 it could still halfway play DVD's & videos (just barely). No longer in 10.04- Mplayer, totem, xine & VLC die when you try to play a video- any video.

And here's what I get(in terminal):
The program 'totem' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'. (Details: serial 89 error_code 11 request_code 132 minor_code 19). (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Displays No Fonts?

Mar 3, 2010

I just upgraded my Debian Etch to Lenny. After doing so, Xorg displays no fonts. I get only rectangles. This occurs in the Login Screen and after logging in. The only thing that is readable are the contents of a terminal (even gnome-terminal). What can I do to solve this Problem? The Xorg.0.log doesn't give me any clue on what's the problem.

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Won't Work On An Old Laptop?

Apr 3, 2010

I've installed squeeze (kernel 2.6.32-3-686 now) on an old Amilo M-6100 laptop with a Silicon Motion graphic chip. I've installed Slim and LXDE but Xorg won't start properly. Apparently it doesn't recognize the screen and tries to apply a wrong resolution, no matter what I do. Also, if I try Xorg -configure, I get stuck with a black screen .

I tried to copy-paste data from a xorg.conf file from there: [URL], to no avail.

Debian Multimedia :: Switch VT With Xorg And GDM Without Multiseat?

Jul 22, 2010

I know this is usually with the intent of multiseat systems. I am not interested in setting up a multiseat system. What I am interested in configuring on using the console and jumping back to X session, not the other way around. Is this possible if your default desktop environment GNOME and configure GDM to do this with the novtswitch parameter mentioned here? [URL]..

I tried even playing around with Xorg, finding out from the man page Xorg server-1.4.2 it does not even have novtswitch functionality compiled X does, but I am not sure I am configured it properly, specifically because I am not doing multiseat. Does anyone have background on this to give me some guidance? I have attached the relevant conf files and logs. Let me know if more is needed. In my test environment, it switches VT anyway and the keyboard does not work. I assume my Xorg binary is not compat for this, but am I even on the right track? I did not expect the kb to go out like it did.

Debian Multimedia :: Reconfigure Or Reinstall Xorg?

Sep 30, 2010

I started with a Pentium4 system with a FX5500 AGP card and now have a i3 with integrated Intel video (Auburndale). The new motherboard is ASUS P7H55-M PRO. The monitor is a Acer AL1916 (LCD) with only VGA input. I have been using the nVidia oprietary drivers installed the "Debian way" (Cf using a Debian stable stock kernel.I first renamed xorg.conf so X would start without one. Once gdm starts, the monitor says the input is not supported. So I tried reusing the old xorg.conf file, changing the "nvidia" to "i810". X then fails to start and shows an error of no screens found.Everything is fine in text mode; only X is not working.I have to get this fixed very quick or I might not get to use Linux at work anymore.

Ubuntu :: Xorg Crashes At Random?

May 5, 2010

Ive been having some problems with a Compaq computer with Lubuntu installed. The problem is that Xorg crashes at random displaying a white distortion on the screen and it usually doesn't let me go to a terminal and i have to force a shutdown.
the same happened when I tried to install Ubuntu but worse. Another side effect is that lubuntu at boot up displays its logo in 16-bit colors and then goes to normal colors.

how can i diagnose the random crashes?

Ubuntu :: Xorg Crashes Only After Boot In 9.04

I have a small issue of Xorg. Every time I boot the ubuntu 9.04, the X will crash immediately after it started. Then, it will start again and shows the login interface. It went well after the second login. I don't know what caused this since there is no error message in /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /var/log/gdm/*.

Debian Multimedia :: Wheezy - Xorg 3 Monitors And Y-splitter

Feb 26, 2015

I am pretty new to using Linux, I am currently trying to configure 3 monitor's with Xorg in Debian Wheezy. I have 2 video cards in the PC and one has a Dell Y-splitter to connect 2 monitors. 2 monitors are 1920x1080 resolution and the other is 1280x1024.

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family DRAM Controller (rev 09)

I attempted to write my own xorg.conf file, but that resulted in the machine booting to single user mode and the xorg startx error log said it could not find any devices.

When I used the generated by the "xorg -configure" command, I was able to get it to display as 3 independent screens, but there was overlap on the screens. I.E. if you moved the mouse to the right side of one monitor, it would show on the left side of another screen at the same time.

automatically generated xorg.conf:

Debian Multimedia :: How To Disable Xorg Screen Blanking

Feb 11, 2011

The X server in Debian seems to have a "funny" habit to suddenly start blanking the screen if I don't touch the mouse or the keyboard for a while, although I've used the xset command (xset -dpms s off) in my ~/.xinitrc to tell Xorg specifically NOT to blank the screen. I know how to disable screen blanking in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I'd rather not have the xorg.conf file at all.

So, I'd be interested to hear your suggestions about how to disable the Xorg screen blanking without using the xset command or the xorg.conf file. Is there some other file in /etc/X11/ that I could tweak to disable this highly annoying desire of Xorg to insist on blanking my screen after a bit of idle time?

Debian Multimedia :: XFREE86 Or Don't Have Xorg As X Window Server?

Mar 20, 2011

I have a couple of questions and one problem regarding my AMD64 Testing box. According to this Debian Xorg Wiki : Xorg is the default X Window server since Debian 4.0 (etch). It replaces XFree86 and is maintained in Debian by the XStrikeForce. appears that I don't have Xorg as my X Window server, but rather XFREE86? I just checked my i386 Testing box, it does have /etc/X11/xorg.conf


The problem: I have lost my higher screen resolutions after today's apt-get dist-upgrade. I only have 800x600 and 640x480. I probably won't complain about these resolutions in twenty years or so, but for now, I'd rather get the higher resolutions back, ha.

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Only Uses Small Part Of Screen?

Jun 9, 2011

After a install on a old Toshiba today everything looked fine. But when i tried to start Xorg it start but doesn't use my whole screen. It is not a resolution problem it just doesn't use the whole screen. Hopefully this explanation is understandable. On lenny i had the same issue but once i changed the console resolution size in grub everything was fine. Sadly this is not the case with squeeze. I already tried "X -configure" and had a look at the generated xorg.conf (posted below)


After that is tried to run the generated xorg.conf but then it just frooze.

Debian Multimedia :: Conflict Reappeared Between Nvidia-glx And Xorg?

Ubuntu :: Wacom Crashes Xorg On KVM Switch?

When I switch my KVM over to my Ubuntu box, the Wacom tablet causes X to crash about 1 out of every 4 times. I will usually see what I'm supposed to for a split second, get a blank screen and/or command line for a second, then I'm back at the login screen.

Xorg.4.log: (EE) Wacom Graphire4 4x5: Error reading wacom device : No such device

If the tablet is plugged directly into the KVM, it crashes every time. Instead, I have the tablet plugged into my Mac laptop, which is itself plugged into the KVM (TrendNet USB w/audio).

Ubuntu :: Xorg Crashes With Fatal Error / Fix It?

Nov 28, 2010

Xorg seems to crash randomly and with no real reason. Once it does, I can't restart it. If I try to restart it with GDM, nothing will happen. However once it crashes, Ubuntu's low graphics mode window pops up. Telling it to reconfigure the xorg config seems to do nothing for my problem. I will still crash after words.

Right now I'm running in an earlier kernel, hoping this will keep it from crasgubg

Here is my xorg log. code...
