- Fixed an X server crash when viewing the website www.tim.it.
Now I use 180.51 and Firefox crashes same as on 177.82.
How can I believe that anything has been fixed?

because it just works ?

(at least on my system )

could you post some more specs of your system ?

are you really running Fedora Core 4 ?

afaik last time I ran a kernel with grsecurity support I had an significant higher rate of firefox crashing:

try disabling flash (-> flashblock) perhaps the crash is triggered by that

Is your whole X server crashing, or just Firefox? The release highlight in question was about X server crashes.

kernel 2.6.29.1-grsec
nVidia Go 7400
nvidia driver 180.51
firefox 3.0.6

www.tim.it does not crash neither X nor ff.
You may have
1) different hardware (but I would assume that 7300 and 7400 are close enough)
2) different grsec config
3) different firefox plugins

easiest to check are plugins of course

So firefox crashed and not the X server? In other words, the original quote is correct, and they did fix an X server crash.

Try to reproduce this with

- A different driver (vesa or nv)
- A different browser

in order to find out where the problem lies.
