Nouveau crashes with multiple monitors
Assigned to Nouveau Project
I would like to direct your attention to this bug report from the arch linux tracker:
Essentially the X server crashes when using nouveau with multiple monitors. Whenever an xrandr command is issued the server crashes. This is particularly irksome since this seems to send the monitors into power-saving mode (i.e. no more signals are sent) so that the problem can't even be resolved from a shell.
I am not the author of the bug report above, I merely googled the error
/usr/bin/Xorg.bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nouveau_drv.so: undefined symbol: exaGetPixmapDriverPrivate
So this seems to affect multiple users. I am currently running debian jessie using version 1.0.11 of xserver-xorg-video-nouveau and version 7.7+3~deb7u1 of xorg-xserver but I ran into the same problem with arch a couple of weeks ago.
I would very much appreciate any help with this. This bug really breaks my setup.
