while developing an embedded distro for a kiosk, I have found Xorg
it hanged using 99% CPU and it couldn't be killed.
After many month of tries i've accidentally found that Xorgs hangs
when all the same conditions are met:
1) Xorg should run in dual head
2) an X client must play a movie with Xvideo acceleration
3) the TV cable should be UNPLUGGED
the hardware is a VIA EPIA board, i'm using drivers from
linux.via.com.tw, any version gives the same result
the weird thing is that IIRC the TV out connector is unidirectional,
so how can the driver know
if there is somethinbg attached or not?
