How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. use r128 card and make sure that r128 module is loaded (default)
2. run sync; xawtv

Actual Results:

the system locks solid after several TV frames displayed (slmost immediately)

Expected Results:

xawtv window shows TV picture.

Additional Information:

if r128.o file is removed from kernel modules directory and X restarted
xawtv works fine.

This also happens on my box with kwintv (rpm --rebuild kwintv from 7.1 powertools).
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-10-11 15:47:04 EDT
Reassigning to kernel.  Just to note, R128 driver uses DRM for 2D and
3D IIRC.  So it is likely a DRI/DRM issue.
Comment 3 Eugene Kanter 2002-07-16 13:49:44 EDT
Xawtv in 7.3 seems to work without crashes with loaded r128 module.
