Re: Dismayed by X crashes after logout
For anyone else tracking this issue:
using vmalloc=256M as a kernel parameter allowed us to initialize all screens successfully in that pci-e machine. However, our main problem is the crashes and failure to restart that occur after several login/logout cycles on all of our machines, which happens even with vmalloc=512M and vesafb disabled. The logs looked the same so we thought the initial problem was the same as crashing problem . The main symptom is i/o errors on /dev/nvidiaX in the gdm log for display Y, where Y and X aren't the same.
We are sending a machine to nvidia for testing -- thanks!
