Description Brendan Wood 2007-06-01 18:11:02 UTC
Description of problem:
When closing a running instance of the "chess game", the display manager (gnome)
reloads and I am taken back to the GDM login screen.  I do have desktop effects

(this is on a brand new F7 install)

How reproducible:
Open the chess application, start a game and then close the window.

Actual results:
The DM dies.

Expected results:
The application closes.

Additional info:
I have reproduced this on 2 machines here, but both machines are the exact same
hardware and configuration - so I can't say that this isn't unique to my
environment.  Please let me know if I can provide any logs or anything.

I have the same problem here Fedora 7.

AMD Athlon XP 2800+ 1GB Ram Nvidia Geforce 6600GT

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-06-04 08:57:50 UTC
In order to investigate this from the xorg point-of-view (xorg should never
crash whatever applicaton does), could I ask you for some more information about
X? I know that you were saying in bug 242175 comment 2 that you don't have FC7
anymore, but could you bear with us for a little more; otherwise we cannot solve
this problem?

We would need your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) attached to the bug report as individual uncompressed
file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, Brendan, I confused your name with Andreas. Hopefully, you haven't given
up on FC7 yet ;-), so could you please provide us the information required.

Comment 9 Brendan Wood 2007-06-04 13:20:46 UTC
I attached a bunch of log files, hopefully something of value will be in there.

I am more than happy to help work out this issue.  It is by no means a "show
stopper" for me, as I don't play chess.  I noticed the app, tried it -> noticed
the crash and figured I would tell someone.  No plans to give up on FC7. 

One thing I did notice is that xorg is now using the "intel" driver, not the
normal i810 driver I have used in the past (my laptop has an integrated i915
intel card).  The driver works fine, except with playing video clips (which
gives me an error such as:

X11 error: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)0.3% 0 0              
X11 error: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)

If I switch to the i810 driver, movies play fine but it won't resume after a
suspend (something that has always worked flawlessly in the past). 

Not sure if this issue is driver related - so I am mentioning this.

All in all, I love fc7 though.


Comment 10 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-06-04 14:29:12 UTC
what version of gnome-games do you have installed?

Comment 11 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-06-04 14:30:16 UTC
If you run glxgears, does it also crash your system?

Comment 12 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-06-04 14:34:30 UTC

Comment 13 Brendan Wood 2007-06-04 15:30:37 UTC

glxgears does not crash anything, it runs/closes fine.

Comment 14 Faolan 2007-06-08 18:59:43 UTC
I'm having the same problem. I can send in my info if you'd like. Although, I
did note that when I open it in terminal, and then close it out, it doesn't kill
the X session. (It hasn't so far at the very least.)

Comment 15 Robert Ancell 2007-06-10 12:07:31 UTC
This bug is now fixed in Gnome svn. See bug link for details:
