x.org bug?

8 posts in this topic

If you have an extra usb-keyboard hold down a key and right before it starts repeating unplug it. Then start typing on your other keyboard. Does this crash x.org for you in about 30 seconds like it does for me? I can't repeat this behavior without X running so I assume it's in there. It's a hard bug- if you fellas see it too, freezes your system. You can't go into a debugger or anything.

lol... you found that by accident? I think you should probably submit a bug report, binrev won't help getting it fixed :P

I'm just wondering if other people experience it too, perhaps it's a quirk of how I have something set up that I'm not aware of-- perhaps it's an actual bug in x, I don't know if other people can reproduce it.

I tried but I couldn't reproduce it.

Maybe you should post your Xorg.conf file, the bug could be in the keyboard input module.

What distro are you using? If it helps i'm using Ubuntu with nvidia drivers. My xorg.conf was generated by the nvidia tools.

openbsd 4.6, I think they tend to lag on their X distribution however.. I'll have to try it with the latest x
