Description of problem:
Game start-up menu comes up fine. When selecting "new game", the
loading screen appears, and seems to load (the load bar runs up to
100%). The sounds change, like the game is starting, then nothing.
Machine is locked up and cannot be accessed - not even through the
Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".

Here's what the kernel has to say about it in syslog:
Dec 28 00:32:24 godzilla kernel: [drm:radeon_freelist_get] *ERROR*
The vid card is an ATI Radeon 9000 PRO VIVO 128MB. Other GL stuff runs
Posted this as a bug-report to the developer of the Linux version of
this game. His opinion is that this is a video driver issue
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run postal2mpdemo
2. Select "New Game"
Actual Results: Once the game loading screen completes, the music
changes to what sounds like in-game sounds, the screen goes black, the
sounds stop, the machine is dead. Hard reboot must be performed to
recover. Keyboard does not respond (not even Num/Caps Lock).
Expected Results: The game should run.
XFree86 log has no messages after the X server start-up.
All packages are up to date on this machine.
kernel updated to 2.4.20-28.9, problem persists.
Unreal Tournament 2003 demo also causes the same error message and
lock-up when attempting to commence the game from the game's main menu.
Changed Summary line to be more representative of the problem. Is
anybody looking at this?
