LD_DEBUG=scopes broke proprietary nvidia driver
Last modified: 2011-10-03 14:54:11 EDT
Description of problem:
glxgears and other opengl applications crashes in libGL.so provided by proprietary nvidia driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.14.90-5 and any newer version
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install nvidia driver 275.28 (should work with xorg server 1.11.1 in F16)
2. Start X and xterm
3. Try to start glxgears or glxinfo
Segmentation fault in libGL.so.275.28.
If glxgears runs in gdb then it not crashes so I am not able to get backtrace.
Downgrading to glibc-2.14.90-4 fixes crash.
Reverting this patch in glibc-2.14.90-5 also fixes crash
Here scratch glibc-2.14.90-5 build with reverted patch which works for me http://koji.fedoraproject.org/scratch/nucleo/task_3396071/
