Today I updated to xorg-server-1.0.1-r3 and xorg-x11-7.0-r1
Now I don't get the error message, but the screen just goes blank.
Funny. Just a little time ago, I had an uptime of 150 days or so. DRI working all the time. After the last reboot, I was faced with the same error - Xorg starts but nine times out of ten, it staggers into a black screen. Remote login is possible, but the system will not shut down no matter how much you wait.
Appears I had unknowingly upgraded my xorg to 6.9.??, which triggered the bug (old version was fine). I disabled DRI and it's working great again. There were similar problems way back in the xfree86 times, the solution to them was also to disable DRI.
Now, today I just upgraded to xorg-7.0.20 currently in Debian testing in hopes to get the problem fixed (as morgoth points the changes being updated to the xorg-trunk). Did not help. However, this time I got the system shut down through remote, and disabled DRI again.
I need to know, are there any other Debian users experiencing this problem right now? Is there any way to solve it?
