Sketch Book crasches and takes the whole GUI/X with it

Reported by: pipatron Owned by: jama
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Other Version: SHR-unstable
Keywords: Cc:


When I click on the Sketch Book icon it seems to start up, with an empty list of sketches. When I tap/click at this empty list, it looks like X dies because I'm cast out to a console with kernel debug messages. No relevant messages are written there, but I typed them anyway:

Power on sequence
About to set power..
Setting JBT power.. 2
entering (old_state=normal, new_state=normal)
Setting previous mode
Setting mode!
Setting base!
entering (old_state=normal, new_state=normal)

This is repeated every time I press the screen after it has gone dark.

It has happened three times out of three on a completely clean image from 20101114.

Some further information: This happens if the list of sketches is empty. If there is something in the list, it doesn't happen.

Please try with fbdev instead of glamo (in /etc/X11/xorg.conf) if you don't have fbdev installed it's in xf86-video-fbdev.

Or you can try it with glamo and nodrm kernel from

I never used Sketch Book, but maybe your problem is related to orrery/dictator/foxtrotgps issue crashing whole Xorg ie:
