System hang at X logout
 
My Spec: Dell precision 650, Redhat Enterpise WS 2.1 update2, NVIDIA Quadro FX1000. Driver 1.0.4496. Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 2.1 (Tampa) Kernel 2.4.9-e.24 on an i686


All,

Hope this helps, I had a problem with the above configuration hard hanging when I logged out (both KDE or Gnome) of X. The system stopped altogther could not be accessed remotely into or even pinged.

Anyway - the long and the short of it was it was my XF86Config-4 file which was causing the problem. I had originally built one using a combination of an old one and the NVIDIA sample. After I reviewed this file and stripped out anything I was unsure of the problem went away. This system is currently running a single screen setup 1024x768 but will eventually be used as a dual head 3D workstation so I still have a bit of work to do.

See below for my working basic single head setup - hope this helps:

OR so I thought.

The !$%%@ thing has started doing it again. I rebuilt my system exactly as before with the changes to the XF86Config-4 but now it's started hanging again???

Do I look stupid or what.

I see a load of posts about system hangs from running X but I don't see many solutions - anyway back to the drawing board.

Regards
Robin
