    what's the deal with OpenGL in F14

    applications that use OpenGL can cause the session to log out...usually, but not always.

    running ATI on this machine... Intel Graphics on my laptop...and my friend runs F14 on NVidia... they all do this.



    ...both my machines will do this with glx-screensavers... my ATI will do this when i use OpenGL on some of my emulators... his machine does it when he tries to start compiz.

    Re: what's the deal with OpenGL in F14

    I've never had this happen yet :O

    Though it sounds unfortunately common for you and your friend. I even played the entirety of COD Modern Warfare in Wine and never had an issue and my screensavers are okay too.

    This is with the open source drivers I imagine? I use the proprietary ones, except on my ATI machine obviously, but I still hadn't seen that problem (but then I haven't used it with ATI quite so much).

    you are aware that Wine doesn't use OpenGL...right?!

    Re: what's the deal with OpenGL in F14

    I've encountered a similar problem of X crashing when launching an openGL application. The cause was a mismatch of mesa GL libraries. Proprietary drivers usually replace mesa's GL libraries. If mesa gets updated (yum update), the proprietary libraries get replaced back with mesa's libraries and funky things start to happen. Reinstalling the proprietary drivers solved it for me.

    I know what you mean, but it ultimately translates to OpenGL

    Anyway the mesa explanation makes sense to me, thankfully it hasn't happened to me just yet.
