View Full Version : glxinfo/glxgears crashes X
28th March 2011, 05:11 PM
Someone have problems with glxinfo/glxgears? If I issue one of those commands in a terminal window my X server crashes and return to login screen.
I'm using an ATI radeon HD4850, just wondering if it's only my case, a xorg-ati driver problem or glxutils/X server problem...

There was a problem in glx-utils
It is fixed in the current rawhide packages.

I don't have this issue using intel gma. Might be related to dedicated graphics chips... (ati/nvidia)

Thanks, I searched for an updated version of glx-utils also in rawhide repos but I didn't find any newer.
I already opened a bug ticket in bugzilla with backtrace, I will see what they reply... My suspect is some problem with new gallium drivers used as default for r600 chipsets (at least for my graphic card). With same glx-utils version in F14 (no gallium drivers) glxinfo worked fine.
