Re: Periodic Fedora 9 system hangs with jumpy mouse

I did the ps thing.  Only one Xorg process was running.

should be just 1.

I also tried kills in the following order:

  kill -TERM  (-15)
  kill -SEGV  (-11)
  kill -KILL (-9)

this is not same as what i was showing you above. use numbers, not words.

type it as "kill -15 'pid#'" and use '-7' if '-15' does not work.

there is a difference in what i am showing you and what you are using.


The first two did nothing.  The last kill (which is not blockable)
changed the process name from "Xorg" to "[Xorg]" and blanked
the /proc/xxx/exe symlink; but otherwise the Xorg process
remained in a run state consuming 100% cpu.

BTW, I've now looked through the Xorg.0.log file, and nothing
interesting shows up in it when this "hang" occurs.

being that it 'hangs' there may not be any log entry.
