Subjectscreensaver locks up 2.4.0-test10-pre7 hard
Pentium 3, 256Mb RAM, kernel 2.4.0-test10-pre7 (as well as 2.4.0-test9).
I installed RH7, compiled the latest development kernels (using kgcc, as
required with RH7). After the "greynetic" screensaver (installed with
RH7) runs for a few minutes, my box freezes up hard. I can find no error
messages in any logs. This is always reproducible. Greynetic just paints
the screen with randomly sized, positioned and colored rectangles as
fast as it can. A stock RH7 2.2 kernel does not have this problem. In
case it matters, I am running xfree86 4.0.1 with a rage 128 video card.
I have not got acceleration set up yet and the r128 kernel module is not
loaded. My only attempt at debugging consisited of telneting into my box
while greynetic ran. I ran vmstat and the only thing that popped out at
me was that the system context switches number was continuously
increasing until the box locked up.
