Whenever an OpenGL program runs, the screen turns completely black.

the DVI port.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.5-1.358, xorg-x11-6.7.0-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run any OpenGL program, e.g. keuphoria.kss.

I get a similar problem; think mine is DRI related.
The screen goes glack for glxgears, but yet prints out the number of
FPS to console still... My card is different (SiS 630), but from what
you've said above the problem sounds the same.

Kernel Version: 2.6.6-1.406 (i686)
Xorg Version: xorg-x11-6.7.0-3

Mine locks up after running a GL app for about 20 seconds.
