12.3 crash consultation -- please.

We have been using the 12.3 Beta almost exclusively since it was released. The nouveau Driver has been working quite well and NOT freezing like the nVidia Driver. However, today we had a “crash”. We were using VMware, Win2K, Homesite and many Linux Firefox windows. We got a crash with the following error report in Xorg.0.log:

869.524] (EE) Backtrace:

The Green line was the last line of our “normal” boot. The lines in Red are after the crash. The screen went black and then presented a convoluted text screen which was the above. We are not sure IF this should be reported -or- not. Any suggestions??

Thanks,
Chuck

Are you aware that those of us who read the forums via NNTP have no idea what
lines are colored? They are all black on white to us. A better way to
distinguish would be to insert a line that says “The following lines are after
the crash”, or some such annotation.

Nope. Sorry.

The “Green” line happens the be the First line of the log report extract [44.517] which was the last line of the “normal” output. All of the rest [869.xxx] are from the crash.

Thanks,
Chuck
