getting sort of crash (NULL pointer dereference ) at logout

Postby Smiff2 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 2:42 pm

i'm regularly seeing a black screen with text when logging out of Mint13 XFCE


Code: Select all

kernel: [163607.876992] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000000000000f0


happens for different user accounts

weird thing is pressing CTRL+F keys gets me back to a working login, so it's not fatal.

no idea how to go about fixing this please?

also can someone recommend a log vewier so i don't have to use the command line for this, not sure how to see the lines around this one with grep!

this may have been a nouveau video driver thing. have installed nvidia 330 drivers and haven't seen it yet, will have to try a bit longer though!
