This week's Hug Day will focus on xorg-server and xserver-xorg-video-intel!

After you have triaged or fixed a bug put your Launchpad Id in the last column and set the row's background to green by adding lightgreen in the first cell of the column after rowbgcolor=. This will let people know that the bug in that row has been hugged.

Tools

For doing your work easier during the hug days remember to use the hugday-tools.

A handy Glossary of some X.org terminology is available, to help decode technobabble in the X logs and error messages.

Stock Responses

Crashes with a broken/incomplete backtrace:

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please try to obtain a full backtrace after installing dbg symbol packages following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Backtracing and attach it to the bug report. This will greatly help us in tracking down your problem.

Blank/black screen bugs on -intel:

Please install xserver-xorg-video-intel-dbg and run the tool intel_reg_dumper once when the screen is working correctly, and once with it showing the blank screen / out-of-range error, and attach both files.  Comparing the register settings for them may highlight where the problem is.

Debugging Xorg in general:

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from after reproducing this issue to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the "Attachment:" box below. If you've made any customizations to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf please attach that as well. 

After forwarding a bug upstream to http://bugs.freedesktop.org and linking it to the ubuntu bug report:

I've forwarded this bug upstream for you to <upstream-bug-id>.  Could you please subscribe yourself to this bug, in case they need further information or wish you to test something.  Thanks ahead of time!

If original reporter no longer has access to the hardware, and can't do testing for us:

Since the hardware is no longer available for doing troubleshooting with, we'll have to close the bug for now.  However please feel free to reopen if you or anyone else has the same HW and can reproduce this issue using the latest development version of Ubuntu and is willing to do some troubleshooting with it.

Needs retested against Jaunty:

Next I'd like to forward this issue upstream, but first it must be retested on latest Jaunty to make sure the issue still happens there with the latest code.  ISO images are available at http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/daily/current/ - if you can reproduce it in the LiveCD environment, you shouldn't need to modify your installed system.  Also please attach a fresh Xorg.0.log from this testing.
