Description Dave Marsh 2005-02-14 10:40:11 UTC
My machine is mostly SuSE 8.2, with a number of added new packages, including
KDE 3.3.  

I've installed the new 6.8.2 release, and I'm seeing the X server crash and die
with the singularly uninformative error:

'An unresolved function was called'

I can cause it every time when running xpdf, which leads me to suspect font
rendering problems.  I have tried compiles with both my system freetype2
libraries and the included one, but the problem remains.  Any clues?

starting with the snapshot, on linux systems, the X server can print
its own backtrace when it crashes.  please confirm that these bugs are still
valid with or later, and if they are please attach a the server log
from the crash.

reporter: ping.  please verify that this issue occurs for you with a current
version of X, or alternatively provide more information about what function the
server is failing to resolve.

Marking broken (status null/blank) bugs in xorg with no activity in a long time as fixed. Please reopen if you think it's necessary, but first do a search if a similar bug report is already filed and in a NEW/ASSIGNED state. These bugs do not currently show in most search results as they do not have any status.
