Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 807782
instant reproducable X crash
Last modified: 2012-03-28 13:53:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Don't laugh but... I installed supertuxkart-0.7-2.fc15.x86_64 and went to options, and tried to change the resolution to be the highest available for my machine. When I hit 'apply new resolution', the screen went black, I got the GNOME spinner icon, and then a GDM login screen.
This happened on a Lenovo X220 Tablet as well as a Lenovo T500 system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If I type export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=Y in a gnome-terminal then run supertuxkart from that terminal, this issue goes away.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run supertuxkart
2. go to options menu
3. change resolution to be higher than 800x600
4. hit apply
5. X go boom
5. Having an awesome game of Super Tux Kart
I am attaching the Xorg.0.log.old so you can see the backtrace.
Thanks for looking into this bug, I really appreciate it!

That's fairly old, newest xserver in f16-updates is 1.11.4-2.fc16, and xorg-x11-drv-intel 2.17.0-8.fc16. Do you still experience this with current updates installed?
Phew, it is fixed in the latest, thank you so much!!!!!!
(I did have a newer one on the x220, the version above is on the T500, but there was a new update and that seems to take care of the issues)
