[Bug 1529932] Re: X session crashes with EQ overflowing


hardhu, to clarify, is the xorg crash preceded by a kernel call trace?

Also, after the xorg crash, is there a crash file in /var/crash?

  X session crashes with EQ overflowing

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On my very old laptop, that is equipped with an Ati Mobility Radeon
  X700, sometimes (and, sadly, I have to use this word, because I found
  no regularity pattern for the occurrence of this bug) randomly the
  desktop session locks, that is I can only move the mouse pointer, but
  I cannot interact anymore with the desktop session. I am forced to
  login trough ssh from another pc and to restart the laptop.

  In Xorg.0.log I found these lines that are, in my opinion, related to
  the crash:

  (EE) [mi] EQ overflowing.  Additional events will be discarded until existing events are processed.
