Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 595015
X.org crashes if KMS is disabled and Desktopeffects (kwin) are enabled
Last modified: 2010-05-22 17:14:49 EDT
Description of problem:
If I boot without KMS enabled (i am bitten by bug #581484) and enable desktop effects X.org crashes after a few seconds if I use the desktop normaly. A way to trigger this is to enable the preview windows in the windowlist and then hover the mouse over the taskbar. X.org immediately crashed. I am reporting this on Thinkpad X100e with Radeon 3200 mobility grpahics
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with KMS disabled
2. Enable desktop effects under KDE4
3. Hover the mouse over the windowlist
X.org should not crash and the effects should work appropriately
Other opengl apps seem to be working fine without crashing (tried glxgears and a view video players which use opengl for displaying the video). I will also file a bug against xorg-driver-ati, since I am not sure where the problem lies.
also filed against xorg-x11-drv-ati as bug #595017
If you need any additional info please let me know
X crashing == driver bug, sorry.
