Description Brutus 2005-10-05 19:22:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; da-DK; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
Fedora freezes when trying to play Steam games using the Cedega windows game emulator from TransGaming. Some people says that it's also happening to other games.
It's happening both using their GUI program called Point2Play, and the CLI emulator.
I think it's a hardware combination problem when using ATI's drivers.
I'm using the latest drivers and the latest FC4 kernel.

I've created a thread about it in TransGaming's forum here with more information:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Steam from www.steampowered.com using Cedega.
2. Doubleclick on a game.
3. The machine freezes completely, and restarting X don't even work.

Actual Results:  My computer freezes.

Expected Results:  The game should have started.

Additional info:

My computer:

Motherboard: ASUS A7V600
GFX card: ATI Radeon 9700 Pro
RAM: 2x512MB Kingston pc3200
Sound card: Creative SB Live! 5.1
Distro: 100% updated Fedora Core 4 with kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4

Please file a bug report in X.Org bugzilla, at http://bugs.freedesktop.org
in the "xorg" component.  Attach your X server log and config file to the
new bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments, and describe
how to reproduce the issue as detailed as possible.

If you are using proprietary drivers however, you will need to contact ATI
directly for assistance as neither Red Hat nor X.Org provide support for
3rd party proprietary drivers.

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, please paste the URL here and
we will track the issue in the upstream bugzilla.

Thanks in advance.
