Description

I updated my mythtv to the latest SSVN build (16162) and it seems that not mythfrontend is causing my X session to die.

Previous to the latest compile the last time I updated was 2 weeks ago.

I recompiled for debugging and used gdb as per http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-22.html#ss22.2 and the following was in gdb.txt after X had restarted. Is this what you need or do I need to do something else to get the trace? (sorry this is the first time ive tried to submit a bug about a crash...)

This is more likely a bug in X, probably your video card driver, rather than something Myth is doing.

Did you look in the logs to see if there is any information there as to why the X session died?

You could try asking on the user list I'm sure there is someone there who will help you. It would help if you provided some useful information like what video card you are using, version of X, which video driver you are using, any error messages in your logs, what was you doing when X crashed etc.

If you still think this is a bug in Myth then reopen the ticket providing as much info as possible.
