Serial console log file.

Description of problem:
The driver was working for some hours without problems. Even restarting the X server was no problem. But after a day I tried to use Xvideo, which resulted in a kernel oops because of memory corruption. The video player started and the system was dead.

Here is a simple reproducer:

1) Remove /var/lib/mlocate/mlocate.db and call updatedb
2) Start to play some video file
Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2009-03-23 09:48:34 EDT
Using xf86-video-ati (from GIT) solves the problem for me completely.
Comment 6 Thomas Woerner 2009-04-02 11:04:24 EDT
It is still a problem with the latest rawhide packages:

Comment 7 Thomas Woerner 2009-04-06 05:46:05 EDT
There has been no corruption since using the fix in xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.12.1-4.fc11.

Closing as RAWHIDE.
