    Dell C610 display close crashes X.org


    Debian testing, kernel 2.6.15.4.

    Whenever I close the display while X.org is running X crashes with the following message:

    Code:
       *** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
       *** be the reason for the server aborting.

    Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
             at http://wiki.X.Org
     for help.
    Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional informati                                                                           on.
    This also happens with kernel 2.6.11.12. The only other messages are:

    This problem started as the result of an upgrade a while ago. I don't know exactly what was upgraded, since I didn't notice it immediately.

    My xorg.conf is:
    Code:

    If I start X, and switch to a different virtual terminal not running X, it doesn't crash.

    Any ideas?

    The problem appears to be solved. Disabling the console framebuffer fixed it.
