X11 crashes with fatal IO error 35 on old pentium I laptop

beasley-3
I'm testing the March 1st install49 snapshot on
a very old pentium I laptop. After installing
from CD I've package added the mozilla-firefox
-3.6.13p3 package (and all other packages it
depends on) with no apparent problems.

When I login as an ordinary user and then issue
"startx" from the command line X appears to start
up normally. If I then type "firefox" in the
terminal shell the browser starts as expected but
shortly after beginning to try to use it X suddenly
crashes with the following messages displayed:
--------------------------------------------------------

Segmentation fault at address 0x85806000

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
         at http://wiki.x.org
for help

Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for
additional information.

XIO: fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on
     X server ":0.0" after 70 requests (70 known processed)
     with 0 events remaining.

XIO: fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on
     X server ":0.0" after 497 requests (485 known processed)
     with 0 events remaining.

xinit: connection to X server lost
xterm: fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable)
       or KillClient on X server ":0.0"

--------------------------------------------------------

This behavior is very repeatable but the fault address and
request count details change with each crash event.

I tried running "top" in another terminal shell on subsequent
experiments to see if maybe I might be running out of memory
but that does not seem to be the case if top's value is right.

My laptop's dmesg output follows:

I don't think this chip gets a whole lot of testing.  You could try
the vesa driver, maybe.

You should try to get an X server backtrace as documented in
/usr/xenocara/README

I don't have chips hardware to try to reproduce the bug.

Please try to mark the file type as text/plain (perhaps by giving them
a .txt suffix) so that they can be viewed on-line by my brower.

I'll fetch the xenocara tree and try to figure out what I need
to do to capture an X server backtrace. I'll post if I get one.

An earlier post suggested I try to use the vesa driver, but I was
never able to get it to work on this machine. (I edited xorg.conf
to change the video driver from "chips" to "vesa" but then running
the startx command as an ordinary user hangs the machine.)

I installed several older snapshots from old CDs until I found
something that worked. The November 30, 2010 snapshot uses X
version 1.8.2 and will run the latest firefox package without
crashing. It's extremely slow on this ancient computer but seems
to be stable. The next snapshot CD I tried - December 19, 2010
(X version 1.9.2) will run firefox for awhile, then X shuts down
with error messages very similar to those I see from a March 1st
snapshot.

I managed to capture a couple files from two separate crash events
(after rebuilding the server and chips driver with debugging on).

A large binary core dump file was saved in /var/crash/Xorg.core:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21186696/var_crash_Xorg.core

using the method described near the end of /usr/xenocara/README file
(changing xorg.conf to set NoTrapSignals true and running startx as
 root with -keepPriv.)

Next is a very small dbg output file that I got using the debugger
though ssh, running X as an ordinary user using the 2 machine method
described in
http://www.x.org/wiki/Development/Documentation/ServerDebugging

This file was much shorter than I expected, and I had to hard reset
the laptop to regain control (I don't know why). It's here:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21186696/Xorg_ssh_dbg_output.txt

I'm hoping one of these files reveals something of value
in understanding this crash problem. Thanks for looking.
