Description Somsak Sriprayoonsakul 2005-07-06 13:47:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
I tried to run Maya 6.0.1 on my system The installation goes fine, but when I run "maya" command. The program show Logo and licensing information, then crashed with SIGSEGV. I tried to run maya in debug mode (maya -d gdb) and there're two failure occured

1. SIGFPE sent when function _mesa_test_os_sse_exception_support was called, this also happened with glxgear demo comes with xorg-x11, somehow I could ignore it and continue the debugger

2. SIGSEGV occured in __driGarbageCollectDrawables (), called from driCreateNewContext(). 

As I googling through the web. There's a blog at http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=it&u=http://www.adamantio.net/article359.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmaya%2Bfedora%2Bcore%2B4%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DG.
said that he can run Maya in FC4 (using NVIDIA?). So I supposed that this is the problem only on my system. Also I'm familiar with bug 161242 which effect Intel graphics chipset so I thought that this might be another variant of the bug.

Here's my system information
Notebook: Dell Latitude D500
Memory: 768MB
Graphics: I855GM Chipset
Xorg driver: i810
xdriinfo returned "Screen 0: i915"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-6.8.2-37, Maya6_0-6.0.1-69

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install maya 6.0.1
2. Run it (/usr/aw/maya/bin/maya), Alias Wavefront logo pop-up
3. Crashed

Actual Results:  Crashed

Expected Results:  At least GUI should pop-up. But only Logo pop-up and crashed

I found that similar bug has been posted to 


This should be the same bug. Somehow I don't sure whether Intel has proprietary
DRI driver for I855GM?
