[Bug 1513799] Re: X crash with Dell XPS 890


I have solved the crash, installing nvidia driver. So it was perhaps due
to nouveau ?

But now, I haven't the computer available (it was the one of a friend)

I'm not able now to test it, sorry ...
But I will try it as faster as I will can ...

  X crash with Dell XPS 890

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have tried with Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 14. 04
  With these versions, X crash, and I can open another console (Ctrl-Alt-F1, ....)
  I have kept the log files, adding lspci -v and lshw outputs :
  alternatives.log   bootstrap.log   gpu-manager.log   apport.log        casper.log
  kern.log                Xorg.0.log         auth.log                  dpkg.log            Xorg.failsafe.log
  boot.log               fontconfig.log  lspci.log                  Xorg.vesa.log
  lspci-v.log            lshw.log

  I have also tried with Ubuntu 15.10 and Ubuntu-Mate 15.04, and it crashes also,
  but I can't keep something. Passing on Console 1 or 2 ...
  I see error messages scrolling quickly on the screen.
  I'm just able to read 'Error' and (pci...)
  Keyboard don't respond anymore, and I must stop the computer with the button.

  The X server crashes with a live-cd, in fact an usb device with multisystem,
  but I don't think it could be the reason, as I use it without problem with other computers.
