Description of problem:
See URL for details. After most recent xorg update to 6.7.0-9, Open GL
games crash with various errors. For example Unreal Tournament gives this;
WARNING: ALC_EXT_capture is subject to change!
Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
Signal: SIGSEGV [segmentation fault]
During the installation of the xorg updates, there is a conflict noted
in up2date and/or yum update as follows;
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL-6.7.0-9 conflicts with file from
This is a direct conflict between the xorg updates and ATI driver
packages. Most users are having to uninstall their ATI drivers,
install the xorg updates, then reinstall the ATI drivers. It seemed to
work for some, others (like myself) not. The reason I mention it is
because I beleive this is relates to the opengl game crashing issues.
Here's some related links;

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run up2date for xorg 6.7.0-9 updates, don't install
xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL due to conflicts with fglrx
2. Deinstall ATI drivers
3. Install xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL
4. Reinstall ATI Drivers
Actual Results: Opengl games crash even though ATI drivers install
correctly and are verified as running with glxinfo.
Expected Results: Opengl games do not crash
One link above is incorrect, it should be as follows. Added another
This isn't an X.Org bug. You're using proprietary drivers which
are not installed from rpm packages, and overwrite Red Hat supplied
X server modules and libraries with proprietary versions from
the hardware vendor. When you upgrade to a new Red Hat X release,
your proprietary modules/libs will be overwritten by rpm. This
is normal and expected.
Any time you upgrade X.Org, you will have to reinstall the
proprietary driver again. Alternatively, install the same
drivers from 3rd party rpm packages.
If you require assistance for any of the above suggestions, please
subscribe to X.Org or Red Hat mailing lists, where there are many
users who may be able to help you reinstall and/or reconfigure
your proprietary drivers.
