GLPlanet hangs linux with G400 when DRI is enabled
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:34 EDT
Description of Problem:
The screensaver GLPlanet hangs my linux box solidly after a few seconds (the
machine doesn't even answer to ping) when I have loaded the dri module in my
'grep VGA /proc/pci' reports
VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G400 AGP (rev 4).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (or at least more than 95% of the time)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the screensaver control panel (in gnome)
2. Select the GLPlanet screensaver
3. Wait for a few seconds
The screen freezes (sometimes the you can move the cursor, sometimes you can't)
and the whole system becomes inresponsive. The machine doesn't even answer to ping
No hang/freeze :)
Is there any way I can narrow down my report?
Attach your X server log and config file. Also attach the output of:
Wher do I find the X server log?
Anyway, I attach the XF86Config.

BTW, you could have looked around a bit for this.
Similar to bug #73827
I had the oppertunity to test around a bit with different motherboards and
processors at a friend, and this problem could only be reproduced with the
particular motherboard/processor/graphics card combo that I happen to have.
