Description Bill Nottingham 2008-03-20 15:32:42 UTC
Description of problem:

If the CM is active, any time totem wants to display a video/visualization, it
receives:

The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 783 error_code 11 request_code 140 minor_code 19)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Turning off the CM 'fixes' it. Filing initially against metacity, I suppose this
bug could be in anywhere from the intel driver up to the gstreamer stack.

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

totem-2.23.0-5.fc9.x86_64
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.4.99.901-10.20080314.fc9.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.2.1-14.fc9.x86_64
metacity-2.22.0-2.fc9.x86_64
gstreamer-0.10.17.2-1.fc9.x86_64

How reproducible:

Every time

Confirmed. The error I got as soon Metacity's CM is enabled is:
----

/me wonders if we should CC xgl-maint@redhat.com, as it might be a bug/feature
of the driver...

Comment 2 Sindre Pedersen Bjørdal 2008-04-02 13:44:44 UTC
I believe this is a bug in the driver. Using the intel driver, switching to EXA
instead of XAA works around this bug. I added the following to my
/etc/X11/xorg.conf Device section:

Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"

Now both Xv and compositing works.

CCing xgl-maint, to get their opinion if this is a bug in metacity or the intel
driver

Can we get /var/log/Xorg.*.log please?

Here you go. Doesn't look like anything of value is in there.
