Default Re: ArchLinux, xorg 1.7, Nvidia 190.42 => segfault

For me, downgrading the packages

xorg-server (1.7.1-1 -> 1.6.3.901-1)
xf86-input-evdev (2.3.0-1 -> 2.2.5-1)
xf86-video-vesa (2.2.1-1 -> 2.2.0-1)

resolved the problems with xorg crashing when moving the pointer from one screen to another with a separate X screen setup. I am still using the current 190.42 nvidia driver though which seems to work alright for me so far. Seems to me that this is not even a nvidia driver problem.

With Fedora12 rawhide, I have xorg-X11-server-X11 1.7 and this segfault.
With Fedora11, xorg-X11-server-X11 1.6.4 and same driver (190.42) I have no problem, no segfault...

Just one info:
With fedora12, they build a new xorg-x11-server, the 1.7.1, and with that I have no segfault when I work with gimp.
If that can help you, this package is here: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/b...buildID=139659

Rebuild xorg-server with xserver-1.7.1-window-pictures.patch, no crash for now...

So it seems to be a xorg bug (for me)

Can someone post a link to the xserver-1.7.1-window-pictures.patch?
It doesn't seem to be on the fedora site.

Thanks in advance.

I extracted from the src.rpm. Looks good now. But I saw some issue with that patch and KVM.

An updated patch version available: xserver-1.7.1-window-pictures.patch.bz2

Can confirm that this patch solved crashes.

Default Re: ArchLinux, xorg 1.7, Nvidia 190.42 => segfault

I applied the just reported patch to my git master xserver sources and reinstalled and subsequently reinstalled Nvidia 190.42. On restart, I have the same problem with xinerama, namely, while graphics is fine on both screens, the mouse behaves properly only on Screen0 (when I move to Screen1 it jumps around wildly and I SIGSEGV after a while [a bug report has been posted on this forum]).

On a hunch, that this was some simple arithmetic issue with dealing with the mouse x offset,
(e.g., an unsigned int being used instead of a signed one), I switched the sense of the two screens. That is in Xorg.conf

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" RightOf "Screen1"
Screen 1 "Screen1" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection


I changed RightOf to LeftOf. Everything now works, (although I'm going to have to switch the screens physically of course.

Unfortunately the updated patch causes a delays with plasma in KDE4. Call krunner, open menu, open calendar each time freezes plasma for several seconds :-(.
I had to return to previous patch version.
