some graphical glitches and X's crashes

Postby RRH on Sun Sep 06, 2009 4:06 pm


I installed the newest Mint CE KDE about two weeks ago. Before I had experience with Debian and Gentoo (still on my desktop). The problems begin shortly after the installation. I've often been experiencing graphical glitches and X's crashes. Sometimes while opening some application it crashes and I get black screen - restart of X doesn't help. If I mention correctly I've got open radeon driver - radeon (read from lsmod). My graphical card is Radeon XPress 200 so probably closed driver won't work (Ati wouldn't support older cards as we heard).

I want to mention I didn't have such problems on Debian nor Gentoo.
Can you help me cause it's very frustrating :(

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi rhh,

your log and config ( ) look okay.. maybe it's a kde issue? I remember problems (on my intel setup) with previous versions (running 4.3 now). to check you could try to login to a fluxbox/icewm/gnome (anything except kde) session or update kde and have a look if these problems continue to occur.
