Assigning to a developer.

How much ram does that card have?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-01-30 13:58:41 EST
I've reproduced this problem on my 32MB ATI Radeon.  This doesn't happen in GUI
mode.  I'm looking into a fix.
Comment 4 Chris Runge 2001-01-30 14:19:23 EST
The card is the 64MB retail VIVO version
Comment 5 Glen Foster 2001-01-30 15:43:52 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-01-30 16:47:16 EST
This is fixed in cvs.  The server variable wasn't being initialized, so it was
failing in the 'if server:' line because 'server' didn't exist.  Brock, please
verify.  Dave has a Radeon card if you need it.  Thanks for reporting this.
