XF3.1.1 - can get back to text VT's

Post by Todd Greenfie » Fri, 14 Apr 1995 04:00:00



I just upgraded to Slackware 2.2.0.1.  Now when
I try to exit X, my display goes blank and
my console is dead.  I get the same results
if I try to switch VTs (Crtl-Alt-Fn).  The
only solution is a hard reboot. The keyboard
seems to be dead - Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work.

The details:

Linux 1.2.3 (idenet kernel from Slackware 2.2.0.1)
XF3.1.1, SVGA server
ATI VGAWonder, 800x600 mode
Logitech 3 button mouse
olvwm window manager

X -probeonly recognizes my card, and X runs fine.      

Output of /usr/X11/bin/openwin:

1. X3.1.1 won't give my swap space back!!

Hi,

When I use XFree86 3.1.1 (or 3.1) for extended periods of time ( > 5 hours),
loading and using anything becomes v..e..r..y  s...l....o.........w

Using 'top' quickly shows why: of my 16M swap partition, X is apparently
using 15M!  Killing all my processes does nothing to aleviate X's death
grip on my swap space.

At first, I thought maybe it was XV doing it... nah, even if XV doesn't
appear during my session, it still happens.  Netscape?  Sure, it uses a TON
of swap space... but it graciously gives it back when it terminates.

So I'm at a loss.  How can I prevent X from taking up all that space?  Or,
how can I get X to give it back?  I'm getting really tired of shutting it
down every couple hours or so...

TIA
