Re: Dismayed by X crashes after logout
The more I talk to Mike from Groovix and the more we hear from the community, the less likely it appears that we are all having unrelated problems with multiple boards. If you can determine what Mike's problems are, you have benefited all of us.
I did try the 8174 driver and after the second round of logouts, the machine froze - no ping, no ssh, no discernable kernel oops. Since I had to reboot, any bug report will be stale. This looks like a 8174 related problem.
I strongly recommend that you perform multi-card testing in-house. Not only would you catch some of our bugs, but you would probably catch a slew of other problems as well which occur on single card systems, but occur less frequently.
