Updating ports and source of my FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT/amd64 host, equipted
with a AMD/ATi HD4830 graphics board driven by X11 xf86-video-ati driver
(which has been recently update as far as I saw),
resulted this morning in an 'un-login-able' box.
I see the xdm-login requester, but after successfully login, I see for a
second the desktop (windowmaker), but X11 immediately dies and resets to
the xdm requester again.
Login from another box and examining the ~/.xsession-errors shows only
foo.bar.org being added to access control list
XIO: fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server
after 29 requests (29 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
wmaker warning: got signal 15 - exiting...
Recompiling xdm and xorg-server ( I did this desperately in the first
place) didn't help very much.
I do not dare to update all the other boxes in my lab, since I suspect a
similar problem since they have all the same or similar hardware (AMD
graphics hardware, running X11, running FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT/amd64).
What to do? What changed?
