The X Lockup Bug
Hi! I have a GeForce 4 Ti4200 64 Mb. When I install the driver, all if working fine. (I use Tuxracer to test the video acceleration) The problem is that when I quit, X Lockup in a blank screen. It's a HARD lockup because if I type reboot or halt, the system do nothing. But if I remove my GF4 and I install my GeForce 2 in the same computer with the same drivers, ALL WORK FINE. No more lockup. So, this bug is really in the DRIVER. Many people say that the problem remains in our configuration but I think I proved here that the driver sucks with a GF4. If someone know how to resolve this issue, post it here. There is many people who wait to repair this bug. Thank you.

why don't you search the forum first... there's about a gazillion posts named 'problem escaping from X' 'X locks up' and the like...

Basically.. it goes away if you boot your computer with the tv-out cable unplugged... it's not distro-specific, it's something with the vbios or the driver.

They know about it and they are doing squat if you ask me. Read my reply on this other thread where I'm whining about the drivers, you'll see. ;)
