Does this error still occur with more recent kernel/X.org versions?

Install the respective* video card of your kernel , just apt-cache of your VGA from the debian repository, surely that will your problem ...

Does this error still occur with more recent kernel/X.org versions?

I don't have that old computer anymore and I was able to reproduce
that problem with etch *only*. So, this can be definitely ignored for
'etch'.

However, with the latest kernel (now in testing too) v2.6.26-10 I'm
getting from time to time a X/kernel freeze when I'm trying to return
to my X/gnome session from screen saver (random selected). Only my
work station is affected (i386) and it didn't happen with any of the
previous versions, so it seems like a regression introduced in the
last build (-10).

I didn't filled a bug report knowing from this previous bug (almost 2
years ago) that without the knowledge to debug it with a serial
connection or netconsole module it will be in vain. I didn't had the
time to learn this yet, maybe a wiki page would help for those that
are not kernel developers.

Thanks

^^^^^^^

The latter should read Lenny?

Does this system run an Intel graphics adapter?

The original report was affecting only 'etch', more specifically a bug
in the 'trident' video driver. Since I was the only one reporting it
and there is no way I can do more tests, I thing the bug should be
closed.
The following report has the same effect but under different
circumstances, affecting 'lenny' only.

Yes, it does. Is this a known bug?

Thanks

Does the 2.6.26-11 (or the current -12 image) fix the problem for you?

Cheers,
Moritz
