Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 508923
sr#1841218/ Xvfb segfaults on fbBlt/memcpy
Last modified: 2013-01-08 02:39:34 EST
Original bug was in the PutImage path. This new crash is in the software Mesa path.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This is a long shot, but this bug is ringing some faint bells. The initial report says the bug occurs when Xvfb is launched like this:
# /usr/bin/Xvfb :3 -screen 3 1280x1024x24 -fbdir /var/tmp
1) Does it work if you change the -screen argument to "-screen 3 1280x1024x24+32" ?
2) Does it work if you append "-extension COMPOSITE" to the command line?
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
