Description jaakko.ruohio 2000-05-19 17:13:57 UTC
Running 'penetrate' screensaver hangs xfree86-svga server and locks
keyboard after the level is cleared every time.  System is reachable via

Strangely enough hang does not occur running another server at :1 and
penetrate on that.

I tried resolutions 1280x1024 and 1600x1200, and 16bpp and 32bpp.

Video is Matrox G400MAX AGP card with 32MB.

Some lines from X startup, I can mail the rest if needed:

(--) SVGA: PCI: Matrox MGA G400 AGP rev 4, Memory @ 0xe8000000, 0xe4000000
(--) SVGA: Linear framebuffer at 0xE8000000
(--) SVGA: MMIO registers at 0xE4000000
(--) SVGA: Video BIOS info block at 0x000c7a80
(--) SVGA: Video BIOS info block not detected!
(--) SVGA: detected an SGRAM card
(--) SVGA: chipset:  mgag400
(**) SVGA: videoram: 32768k
(**) SVGA: Option "dac_8_bit"
(**) SVGA: Using 16 bpp, Depth 16, Color weight: 565
(--) SVGA: Maximum allowed dot-clock: 300.000 MHz
(**) SVGA: Mode "1600x1200": mode clock = 220.000

we can't duplicate this problem on _any_ machines here, so we have to assume it
is something specific to your hardware.  Perhaps it is slightly flakey.
