Subject: [gentoo-user] Synaptics driver freezes my kernel
Date: Tue, 09 Oct 2012 11:59:31
Message-Id: 1349783822.7470.5@numa-i

I'm using kernel 3.6.1-gentoo (which claims to have fixed a synaptics  
modules bug) with
xorg-server-1.11.4-r1 (I can't use a more recent one because my ATI  
graphics card is "too old"
for ati-drivers > 12.4) and xf86-input-synaptics-1.6.2.

After a few minutes, it segfaults the kernel ==> hard reset.
Without synaptics the system is rock stable (for many hours at least).

Has anybody made a similar experience or know about a bug fix?

Many thanks for hint,
