Description davenrs 1999-03-14 04:31:52 UTC
While trying to run a TV capure card on my 164LX-533 alpha
on a Trio64 (4mb video ram) video card, the X libs freeze

The program was recompiled (have tried both tvset-net and
xawtv , with the same resulting problem produced in a

using GDB,
0x20000c0cce0 in __select () at __select:2
__select:2: No such file or directory.
(gdb) bt
#0  0x20000c0cce0 in __select () at __select:2
#1  0x200009d5ebc in _XWaitForReadable ()
#2  0x200009d6ec8 in _XRead ()
#3  0x200009d8cdc in _XEatData ()
#4  0x12001b4b0 in XF86VidModeGetAllModeLines ()
#5  0x12000b984 in xfree_init () at main.c:2083

Bool XF86VidModeGetAllModeLines(
           Display *display,
           int screen,
           int *modecount_return,
           XF86VidModeModeInfo **modesinfo);

goes into the select and never returns!!

Does this ever happen under normal use when not using the TV capture

Comment 2 davenrs 1999-03-18 19:14:59 UTC
This happens before the tvcard is opened /dev/video0.  i could isolate
the code and create a test program if you like.

Please do so.  If you find the exact cause of the problem, make sure
to submit it to the XFree86 team.
