Description

Hi all,

I'm running OI 2020.04 snapshot, patched to the most recent image-update (illumos-12faddfc96). The machine in question is a Lenovo ThinkPad T61.

The issues is that at least twice today, the MATE desktop (started via lightdm) has crashed, bringing me to a bare command line in root. (I had started MATE with "# pfexec svcadm enable lightdm".) In this momentary state, any input of mine at the command line is rendered onscreen as gibberish (non-standard ASCII characters?) before lightdm restarts.

It has been a while since I've last reported an OI bug (or used OI/illumos on bare metal), so please forgive any missing info in this initial report. Conversely, please let me know if there's any system data I can provide.

Other than the above issue, everything is working great and the system looks and feels more polished than ever. =)

Thank you for your time and attention.

Cheers,
James
