Thread: openSUSE 11.3 Screensaver Crashes X

  1. #1

    Unhappy openSUSE 11.3 Screensaver Crashes X

    Operating System: openSUSE 11.3

    Sometimes when I press a key or move my mouse to deactivate the screensaver, X crashes and restarts.

    /bin/dmesg gives "kdm[1790] X server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly"

    /home/.xsession-errors is too think to review, but I could not find anything about the screensaver.

    Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem?

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Personally I never use screensavers, they save nothing and are real pain.

    I had various problems (including system crash) with screensavers using fancy graphics (e.g. openGL). Try to use some very simple effect - or just blackout.

    I always use screensaver - but only black screen to lock my desk.

    Yes, but ~/.xsession-errors get flushed by the new session. You should look in ~/.xsessions-errors.old

    Try selecting a non-OpenGl screensaver rather than Random; that removed a different problem for me.

    Hi,

    What graphics are you using? NVidia? ATI? Intel?
    Those who never try never fly!

    I'm having the same problem with KDE 4.4 (which Debian is still using at the moment)
    #616510 - kdm or xserver crashes intermittently but often when interacting with screen saver unlock dialog - Debian Bug report logs

    Did you find any solution?

    Slightly off topic. But, is ".xsessions-errors.old" being used? On my desktop, that file has a date around 6 months ago (perhaps about the time that I switch to KDE as desktop). On a more recently installed system, the file does not exist at all.

    No it not in use
    They are log files anyway and be safely deleted.
    A new one will be made automatically to record errors

    When you log in using gdm, .xsessions-errors get renamed in .xsessions-errors.old and a new .xsessions-errors is created. xdm doesn't do that. kdm by default uses /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession and doesn't seem to so that either.
