Description of problem:
When I start e.g. glxgeras it segfaults. Here is the backtrace:

(gdb) bt

The above doesn't happen when I use XFree86-4.3.0-2.
I use an upgraded version of Red Hat Linux 9 with 2.6.0-test8 kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.0-test8.0 glibc-2.3.2-98 XFree86-4.3.0-40

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to start glxgeras on i845G hardware with DRI turned on.    

Additional info:
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-10-23 18:18:33 EDT
Is the problem reproduceable with the officially supported 2.4.x kernel?
Comment 2 Andrew Novikov 2003-10-24 05:22:44 EDT
No, I can't reproduce the problem with the official kernel-2.4.20-20.9. 
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-10-24 13:31:33 EDT
Ok thanks, this is a known issue with the combination of current XFree86
Mesa and 2.6.x kernels being incompatible with each other.  Some time
after Fedora Core 1 is shipped, this issue will be investigated deeper
as we don't support 2.6.x officially at this time.
