Description Daniel Resare 2002-10-15 04:10:55 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):

How Reproducible:
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

Actual Results:
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

Expected Results:
No hang/freeze :)

Additional Information:
Is there any way I can narrow down my report?

Attach your X server log and config file.  Also attach the output of:

cat /proc/version
Comment 2 Daniel Resare 2002-11-04 04:15:44 EST
Wher do I find the X server log?

Anyway, I attach the XF86Config.

/proc/version reads:

Linux version 2.4.18-17.8.0 (bhcompile@daffy.perf.redhat.com) (gcc version 3.2
20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)) #1 Tue Oct 8 13:51:08 EDT 2002

BTW, you could have looked around a bit for this.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-07 07:49:00 EST
Similar to bug #73827
Comment 6 Daniel Resare 2003-01-04 11:28:36 EST
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.
