View Full Version : Xserver crash+literally nothing is working!

18th January 2008, 06:38 AM
I got a new machine with 1440 900 19" LCD display. I installed fedora 8 on it and upgraded right away. Then I installed the multimedia stuff.

Now the problem is lterally nuthin is working. I thought it might be some config settings. so Icreated a new account and now it looks like this

Xmms, mplayer , office, xine, kde, gnome nuthing works properly! Here's a detail output

[temp@Quad ~]$ xmms

Here's another error which I guess is causing much problem.

And here's the crash report....

What the heck is wrong? I think there is some module that is not being loaded and causing all the chaos. But my knowledge of X is very limited. Please help! :(

Unfortunately "segmentation fault" is an extremely uninformative error, so let's start with your first error. Try this to get libgnomebreakpad.so installed.
yum install bug-buddyEDIT: Also try this.
yum install metacity gtk2 gtk+

I edited my earlier post. There 3 more problems

1. Yum install/update also gives segmentation fault many times. I tried "rpm --initdb/rebuildb", but it still persists randomly.

2. These apps dont start in kde also!

3. keyboard key doesn't persist! I mean after typing a long command like "yum install a b c d e f" when the keyboard blink is on say right, I have to press left button repeatedly to get to left. It doesn't work if I keep the left button pressed and vice versa!

BUT firefox works!! Thats how I am able to contact this forum right now and bug-buddy is already installed !! :(

Edit : metacity and gtk u told are already installed :(

It was a bad install in the presence of a bad memory stick. I removed the stick and reinstalled. Everything is awesome again! :)

Yeah, bad ram would do that.
