Description Gautam Iyer 2008-05-25 21:17:04 UTC
After upgrading to the 2.3.1 driver, my laptop crashes immediately (with no log messages) if I close the lid when X is running. There is no crash if I switch to text mode. This worked correctly with the 2.3.0 driver.

The crash is immediate, with no log messages and nothing in Xorg.0.log. I'm not sure how to give you more information about this...

My system is

    xorg-server- (git patches in 1.4 branch upto 2008-05-07)

Let me know if there's any other info I can post to help you reproduce / fix the bug,

I can't reproduce this on my 965GM.

Please refer to http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/how_to_report_bug.html to provide more info, at least Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf.

It will be a big help if you could git-bisect to find which commit causes this. There are very few commits between 2.3.0 and 2.3.1.

I just spent some time playing with this. I think that the problem is xorg-xserver related -- When I upgraded my Xserver to the latest git sources (1.4 branch), I don't have the problem anymore.

Maybe you can close this now (mark as invalid), and if it reoccurs, I'll reopen it,

Thanks for looking into it, and sorry for wasting your time with an invalid report,
