Radeon 7500 card not playing OpenGL games
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Radeon 7500 Mobility graphics card crashes when loading up GL games.
glxgears works fine, but as soon as tuxracer loads up past the menu it crashs X,
not a full hardware crash but just will kick back to X. Same goes for Chromium
I am using the Standard RH8 X server packages.
2D works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open X
When Hardware Acceleration is turned off in the display control panel tux will
work, but obviously very slow.

XFfree86 Log file
Log File for when I loaded tux up and it crashed. Copied the log file out of
/var before reloading X
Anybody have any idea on this one?
Hardware, ATi Radeon mobility 7500 in a Compaq Evo N1000C laptop.
Dunno, I don't have any Radeon Mobility hardware. Works fine for me on
Radeon 7500 however. Perhaps there are some clues present though:
(II) RADEON(0): Supported additional Video Mode:
(II) RADEON(0): clock: 65.0 MHz Image Size: 286 x 214 mm
(II) RADEON(0): h_active: 1024 h_sync: 1048 h_sync_end 1184 h_blank_end 1320
(II) RADEON(0): v_active: 768 v_sync: 771 v_sync_end 777 v_blanking: 803
(II) RADEON(0): eÃ¿P
(II) RADEON(0): AUQ
(II) RADEON(0): Monitor name: B141XG03
(II) RADEON(0): End of DDC Monitor info
Looks like DDC probe information is getting screwed here. Not that that
is the problem of course, but it does suggest some other bug or hardware
Please attach your kernel log from after a crash, as I'd like to see if the
CP is hanging.
What exaclty are you looking for? /var/log/messages?
If so, i cat'ted it before I loaded Tux and when It crashed , nothing changed,
no new entries nothing.
If its not /var/log/messages , what am I looking for and where can I find it?
tuxracer and chromium work fine for me in both Red Hat Linux 8.0 and 9 on
Radeon 7500 and other Radeon hardware.
Closing bug WONTFIX due to lack of required information. If this problem
persists in Red Hat Linux 9, please file a bug upstream in XFree86.org
bugzilla at: http://bugs.xfree86.org and/or discuss the issue on the
dri-devel mailing list on sourceforge. That is the best way to get problems
resolved with 3D acceleration issues that affect video games.
