Some screensavers (glxgears and jigglypuff) cause a complete lock up.
X has completely, remote sessions logging in through SSH are also
hung. The machine still responds to ping. No output relating to the
hang is produced in any log files.
The machine in question has an "Intel Corp. 82865G Integrated Graphics

The failures of these programs to run in the past on Fedora Core 2 has
been the subject of a couple of other bugs (117713 & 119705).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in grpahically
2. Run glxgears
Actual Results: System hangs
Expected Results: No hang and screensaver should run.
I'm currently using xorg-x11-6.7.0-0.4
I should have mentioned that this happens on the non-SMP kernel as well.
can you try the kernel at http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6
we fixed a critical bug in this code yesterday
No change; no extra output.
Ok please try the 350 kernel in the url above; I could reproduce this
and it's now fixed for me.
Works for me too.
