Default Re: X freezes with FX5200

That's what I thought may be causing it. This is a common issue you can search the forum for (Just search for "Badness in pci_find_subsys"). The biggest causes seem to be AGP problems, bad memory (test with memtest86 on its own boot disk), use of the framebuffer ("vga=" option on bootloader), and BIOS problems; there seems to be a wide variety of causes including ones I haven't listed. In my case it turned out to be a thermal problem, my card actually overheated so many times it eventually broke, so I bought a new one that has a fan and improved my case ventillation. I haven't had any problems but haven't tested thoroughly. The issue does seem to affect only kernel 2.6 users, the function being referenced is deprecated in kernel 2.6.
