XF86VidModeGetAllModeLines in XFree XF86VIDMODE Broken on alpha
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
While trying to run a TV capure card on my 164LX-533 alpha
on a Trio64 (4mb video ram) video card, the X libs freeze
The program was recompiled (have tried both tvset-net and
xawtv , with the same resulting problem produced in a
0x20000c0cce0 in __select () at __select:2
__select:2: No such file or directory.
#0 0x20000c0cce0 in __select () at __select:2
#1 0x200009d5ebc in _XWaitForReadable ()
#2 0x200009d6ec8 in _XRead ()
#3 0x200009d8cdc in _XEatData ()
#4 0x12001b4b0 in XF86VidModeGetAllModeLines ()
#5 0x12000b984 in xfree_init () at main.c:2083
goes into the select and never returns!!
Does this ever happen under normal use when not using the TV capture
This happens before the tvcard is opened /dev/video0. i could isolate
the code and create a test program if you like.
Please do so. If you find the exact cause of the problem, make sure
to submit it to the XFree86 team.
