This has been happening in recent openSUSE 13.1 KDE3, openSUSE Factory KDE3,
and Fedora 21 KDE 4.1x. System runs fine without X running regardless what is
booted. Newest OSes not rebooting or crashing on this multiboot mga G400
machine until today's update rounds were openSUSE 12.3/server 1.13.2 and
Mageia 3/server 1.13.4. Updating 13.1 and Factory and trying other kernels
didn't help. Where do I start looking for clues to whether fault is/was CPU
type, (gfxchip/driver[1]), server, acceleration method, DE, kernel or
something else, so as to get 13.1 and Factory to reboot or lockup no longer?
Anyone know the culprit?

Factory updates

Last line in last URI above:
[    88.469] (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version 1.4:
Permission denied

Is that the clue?

[1] looks like not the MGA G400  or its driver. I brought a different Factory
system up to date, but with a P4 CPU, and cannot reproduce the problem there.
