Bug Description

Hi Guys,

Yesterday I received 2 security updates and installed/accepted them (19th July)

A short while later in the day ubuntu started restarting every so often. It appeared that the restarts were only associated with Firefox. I started using Epiphinay and the same thing happens.

I am using unbuntu Feisty 7.04 on an Acer Aspire 5050 Laptop

I have tried googling a solution but only a small handful of people are experiencing the same thing with no replies. Any help would be appreciated. If there is a roll back solution I would welcome that or anything to stop the machine from restarting.

daemon log shows:

Jul 19 09:43:38 blowfish gdm[4845]: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0
Jul 19 09:43:50 blowfish NetworkManager: <information>^IUpdating allowed wireless network lists.
Jul 19 09:53:31 blowfish gdm[6482]: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0

The kernal log shows plenty of :
Jul 19 09:25:17 blowfish kernel: [ 35.538900] hda_codec: invalid dep_range_val 0:7fff all the way up to Jul 19 09:25:17 blowfish kernel: [ 35.632829] hda_codec: invalid dep_range_val 0:7fff

I am not sure if this means anything, it is from the same log

24th July
The machine restarts whilst browsing.

The last bit of code that I can offer to anyone out there is :

Is there any way to stop the machine from restarting?

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately we can't fix it, because your description doesn't yet have enough information.

Please include the following additional information, if you have not already done so (please pay attention to lspci's additional options), as required by the Ubuntu Kernel Team:
1. Please include the output of the command "uname -a" in your next response. It should be one, long line of text which includes the exact kernel version you're running, as well as the CPU architecture.
2. Please run the command "dmesg > dmesg.log" and attach the resulting file "dmesg.log" to this bug report.
3. Please run the command "lspci -vvnn > lspci-vvnn.log" and attach the resulting file "lspci-vvnn.log" to this bug report.

For your reference, the full description of procedures for kernel-related bug reports is available at [WWW] http://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeamBugPolicies. Thanks in advance!

Happened to me twice recently, both times while being away from the system.

I don't recall the first time precisely, but today the machine wasn't doing much of anything.
The only apps running were Firefox (some seemingly innocent pages), Thunderbird, two terminals, emacs, and maybe pidgin.

I had the system in 'lock screen'-mode (display turned off), with the 'Skyrocket'-screensaver running.
When I returned and turned the display back on, I was at the gdm login prompt. All my manual mounts were still mounted, so gdm had just cycled, I concluded.

Indeed, in syslog:
gdm[10640]: WARNING: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0

Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron.

Linux skyscraper 2.6.24-23-generic #1 SMP Mon Jan 26 01:04:16 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux

$> lspci -vvnn
see attachment

dmesg:
I'm not even thinking about attaching that, for it's entirely meaningless -- apart from the above gdm error.
Reason: it's flooded, every 2 seconds(!), with this message:
DoRxHighPower(): RF_ZEBRA, Upper Threshold: 99 LOWER Threshold: 70
That's a bug in its own right, one which apparently will not be fixed. Nice going.

At that point in syslog, my laptop has died, can't ping it, can't change to text console (Ctl-Alt-F1 etc), can't reboot with Ctl-Alt-Del. Ctl-Alt-Backspace does nothing. Screen is black.

Events that have 'triggered' this:
- I've had no local login session (gdm starts, but all my logins are otherwise ssh -X from a remote host, which remote logins run xterms, firefox, and that's about it).

I have a USB drive bind mounted onto my home directory (on bootup, before any logins).

Then, I go to my laptop and attemp to Ctl-Alt-F1 to do a local console-only login, and the screen goes black and the laptop hangs.

On reboot, I can provide the following info:
