sorry for the double-post, but I do not know if this is 64-bit

SuSE 10 x86_64
xorg - 6.8.2-100.2
ati prop. driver - 8.22.5-x86_64 (tried 8.21.7 - same problem)
videocard - ATI X800 - ExpressPCI
KDE - 3.5.1 Level "a"
Using the switch user option of KDE to start a new kdm for a second
user to login works OK, The user can login. But if then I try
Ctrl-Alt-F7 to return to the other session, or when I close the new
session, or if I switch to virtual terminal (Ctrl-ALt-1..6), and try
to get back to any X one (Alt7-8) it badly hangs the machine. No
remote access either, so I can not kill the X server.
Looks like the problem is with the ati proprietary driver, as if I
uninstall it and use the generic one, everything works just fine.
Do someone have such a problem? Is it isolated only to the 64bit
version, or it happen with the 32 bit as well?
On my 32-bit system (9800 Pro) [everything latest] I can switch
between users (Alt7-8) without problem. [However, screen F8 is
not 3D hardware accelerated.]
On my 64-bit system (X800 PCIE) [everything latest] I have the
same problem as you. My bypass is to go to another desktop in F7
and there 'su' to the other user.
The only clue is in /var/log/Xorg.20.log: the fglrx message
"Failed to initialize UMM driver"; and at the end messages
from AUDIT three times: "client 3 rejected from local host"
"Auth name: MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 ID: -1"
Any suggestions how to solve/or at least debug and try to solve the
problem? ATI's site is horrible, so before I even try to deal with
them, I'd like to receive as much as possible information.
No suggestions. But on the ATI site I once had a complaint, and
they were quick and courteous in explaining what I had done wrong.
[I had to navigate around to find where to communicate with ATI --
I think the page was called "Feedback" or something like that.]
