Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209441
starting desktop-effects crashes system at high resolutions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
Description of problem:
I have a ATI card (FireGL Mobility T3 [M10 NT]), which I usually run at
1600x1200. I started desktop-effects, all the window borders disappeared and
then the system locked hard. I had to reboot the machine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X at 1600x1200 resolution and desktop-effects not enabled
2. start desktop-effects and enable
all the window borders disappear and the the system locks requiring a reboot.
Enabled desktop effects
If I reduce the resolution to 1024x768 then I can enable the desktop effects.
When I restart X, it comes up at 1600x1024 with compize working fine.
Are you running at least xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-43.fc6? If not, please
updgrade to that version and see if it fixes the lockup, thanks.
I was running xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-43.fc6 when the error occurred, but
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-44.fc6 has come through and that seems to have fixed
Great, thanks for confirming this.
