[issue818] Modular Xorg 1.3 "WaitForSomething(): select: errno=673149184" bug
Joe "Floid" Kanowitz <email@example.com> added the comment:
Unfortunately, I never found the culprit, but mv'ing /usr/pkg (and its db in
/var) to ensure that every single Xorg dependency (and gdm, and all its
dependencies) was freshly built did fix it.
The new binaries continue to play nice when copied atop the old /usr/pkg tree
and same is mv'd back into place. YMMV.
This on DragonFly 1.11.0-PREVIEW from Nov 23 2007, pkgsrc-2007Q3.
The old Xorg had the same problems after that update until the above was performed.
Reminder: If you move /usr/pkg aside and your login shell lives there...
GNOME users: The only lingering issue is a mouse problem in GNOME. This
doesn't occur with gdm or twm left running all night, but after an indeterminate
time in a gnome-session (MTBF 15 minutes), the pointer jumps to the top left
corner and 'sticks' there, yet button events still work. Replugging the mouse
is no cure and moused doesn't seem to be an issue, so it's probably somewhere in
GNOME itself. When I figure this one out I'll document it in the bugtracker.
