X crashes at startup, from time to time
I've set up a PC for a friend based on a Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DS2H (nvidia 9400M chipset).
Every once in a while, after a reboot (usually if machine boots without any screen connected) X will fail to start.
Looking at the log ;
you see that X crashed just after you have an error like:
(EE) *** Aborting ***
(EE) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Failed to allocate EVO DMA push buffer
What is this ?
Could it be a faulty motherboard?
RAM passed memtest86 ..
