I found that this problem is directly related to GLX not loading on
xstart  Any application that requries GLX will cause the user to be
logged out and x will reset. 


This bug only started to occur after updated to the latest development

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-10 04:38:10 UTC
I'd like to ask a few questions which will be helpful in determining
the cause of the problem.

- What OS release were you using prior to updating?
- What version-release of XFree86 were you using prior to updating?
- Are you using a Red Hat supplied kernel, or a custom built one?

Also, can you please attach the following files as uncompressed
file attachments:

- X server log
- X server config file
- /var/log/messages

The output of "lspci -vvn" and "lsmod" from while X is running
would also be useful.

Thanks in advance.

For some reason rebuilding the drivers fixed the problem. I forgot to
exclude kernel updates through yum and the glx module never got
rebuilt to the new kernel source. My bad, I should've thought of this
before posting. I owe you a beer.
