    It's nice and quiet in here ;)

    Which coincides with my observation: the X.Org upgrade was swift and painless, and everything is in working order.

    Nah, just quietly weeping with fear over here in the corner, afraid to do anything but df(1) and run shell builtin(1)s.

    Ok, so it was too good to be true.

    First glitch encountered: Pidgin segfaults and crashes the entire X environment. No clues in either /var/log/Xorg.0.log or /var/log/messages. Currently running a portmaster -Rf pidgin\*.

    FWIW, I just finished updating all my installed ports, including Xorg, and encountered no problems.

    This is on an 8-0-STABLE/i386 system with an Intel Atom processor and using the Vesa video driver. I used 'portmaster -a -d' to perform the update.

    I haven't yet exercised all of my usual applications, so something might still turn up. But right now it looks good.

    Added 2 May: My success report was premature. Today portmaster tells me xorg still needs to be updated. I thought it had already been updated by yesterday's run, but it seems I was mistaken.

    While compiling libXi got a stop due to parser error, cause docbook-xml-4.5 was not installed. Installing docbook-xml-4.5 solved the problem.

    Well, that didn't help. Pidign still segfaults and takes the X environment down with it. The console prints:

    Code:
    Pidgin: Fatal IO error 2 (No such file or directory) on X server :0.0.


    No idea what that's about right now.

    Interestingly, Pidgin will start and run when issuing:

    $ truss /usr/local/bin/pidgin > ~/bla 2>&1

    or when issuing:

    $ /usr/local/bin/pidgin > /dev/null 2>&1

    Works fine here.

    -xf86-video-ati
    -openbox
    -64 bit
    -8-stable

    According to miwi the following should avoid such problems.

    A recursive Pidgin reinstall should've fixed it already.

    If Xorg is crashing, clearly the problem is with the driver or X server, even if pidgin is the trigger. Maybe an update of the ports tree followed by rebuilding Xorg is in order.

    Also interestingly, the error message you posted doesn't seem to exist in pidgin source...

    (unless I'm blind)

    As a heads up, here is a copy of what I posted to the x11 list:

    Hi,

    When starting Xorg

    Code:
    /libexec/ld-elf.so.1:
    /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so: Undefined symbol
    "xf86LoaderReqSymLists"


    appears. I tried a newly generated config file, but there was no
    change. The is on a box running 8.0-RELEASE-p2. If there is any
    other information I can provide, please let me know.

    Cheers,

    Joey Mingrone

    Indeed. It looks like X is trying to access some resource that no longer exists. I guess I could (re)install pidgin here and see if it causes mucho freude here.

    Edit: pidgin doesn't give problems here. My /var/db/ports/pidgin/options
    Code:
    # This file is auto-generated by 'make config'.
    # No user-servicable parts inside!
    # Options for pidgin-2.6.6_1
    _OPTIONS_READ=pidgin-2.6.6_1

    Just finished compiling. My intel-video-based Thinkpad X60t runs fine.

    Two problems though.
    My keyboard repeat rate is default again. It seems my HAL policies are picked up, but not acted on.

    Code:
    43203-38: udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/atkbd_0'
    43252-  freebsd.driver = 'atkbd'  (string)
    43289-  freebsd.unit = 0  (0x0)  (int)
    43322-  platform.id = 'atkbd.0'  (string)
    43358-  freebsd.device_file = '/dev/atkbd0'  (string)
    43406:  info.capabilities = { 'input', 'input.keyboard' } (string list)
    43472:  info.category = 'input.keyboard'  (string)
    43517-  input.device = ''  (string)
    43547-  input.x11_driver = 'kbd'  (string)
    43584-  info.udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/atkbd_0'  (string)
    43646-  info.subsystem = 'platform'  (string)
    43686-  info.product = 'AT Keyboard'  (string)
    43727-  info.parent = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/atkbdc_0'  (string)
    43793-  input.x11_options.AutoRepeat = '200 60'  (string)
    

    Mice work great though, configured in the same .fdi policy.

    Looks like this post on the Debian forums.

    Also, the input-wacom driver does not compile.

    Any thoughts? slow keyboard repeat rates suck.

    FBSD-8.0, Radeon X1650, radeon driver.

    Updated Xorg yesterday, everything seems to work, except KMyMoney. This is my only KDE3 program. When opening a save dialog, or otherwise switching top level windows, the mouse will suddenly start moving very jerky, and everything else is unresponsive. Unable to ctrl-alt switch out to console, cannot close windows, nothing. Harddrive light is not active. Am forced to poweroff.

    I have not rebuilt KDE3/KMyMoney yet. Will try that.

    FreeBSD 8.0, KDE 4.3.5, ati radeon gr. card

    Kuickshow-kde4 stop working. There are no error just a grey picture. I rebuilt kuickshow but didn't help.

    The other problem is scroling in Konqueror and Firefox. It is not smooth as before. Maybe is a problem a mouse driver?

    I reinstalled Pidgin in numerous configurations (including the binary package), but it keeps bombing X on amd64/8 stable. Same error.

    Seriously, Pidgin is not the problem, just the trigger. The problem is with Xorg. If you are using the latest version, rebuilt everything, and it's still crashing, try and get a backtrace with gdb.

    Is Xorg generating a core dump when this happens?

    I know Pidgin is not the problem, because it's X crashing and giving the error about Pidgin, I'm just playing with build variations of Pidgin to see if one of them works. It looks like some file descriptor snafu. There are no dumps, and truss is not really informative. Since none of my other apps are misbehaving in any way, it must be something specific about the interaction between Pidgin and X.Org 7.5.

    What's the best/easiest way to downgrade to Xorg 7.4? Thanks in advance.

    Just came here to say the upgrade was smooth as silk using portmaster over ssh. It upgraded something like 160+ ports. Only hiccup was trouble running pkg_delete on xorg_server7.4 I typed "i" for ignore and it continued until completion.

    Also, no trouble at all with pidgin. DutchDaemon, if there's any information from my system I can provide that would be of help to you, do let me know.

    @maplecookies, are you on 8-STABLE/amd64? That's my environment. It's not a biggie; I can live without Pidgin.
