Bug Description

I upgraded from breezy to dapper a few weeks back. Most of the upgrade was smooth except for some hiccups with moving to pcmciautils when 2.6.15-x kernel came in...

however, every once in a while, even as i am doing something on the laptop, everything freezes. keyboard events don't help, no ssh connection is possible, not even a ping. i basically would have to hard boot.

Keyboard and network lockup sound kernel related...

Simon Law (sfllaw) wrote :

This sounds like a kernel panic. Can you get Control-Alt-F1 to see the
kernel message?

If not, can you leave your laptop pointed at that screen and cause it to
freeze?

A transcription of the precise panic message would help immensely!

Thanks.

I narrowed this problem down to probably the ati driver. I was using the one that comes packaged with dapper.

Switching to vesa made this problem go away. But I really wish I could get back to ATI. I am ready to provide as much addl info as I can -- only I don't know what to provide. So let me know.

Aha!

The bug is that Radeon Mobility M6 LY chipsets are still poorly
supported by X.org. This is a duplicate of another bug we have
in the system. Could you subscribe to that and provide any
debugging information you've found?

Thanks!

Is this problem the same with Radeon Mobility M7 chipsets ? Because I have "strange" freezes too :(

/var/log/syslog doesn't say anything special at al...
I'll try vesa soon.

Most of the time radeon works fine though.. :(

the same for me I have a IBM thinkpad x24 with a "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon Mobility 7000 (M6 LY) 1" and use the radeon driver too and since I updated to dapper I have this freezes too.
