A new Flyspray task has been opened.  Details are below.

Operating System - i686

Details - Hi!

There seems to be some problem with the new fglrx driver.

glxgears and glxinfo

In the terminal they print:
Segmentation fault

In dmesg:
glxgears[5569]: segfault at 00000000 eip 00000000 esp bfa90b4c error 4


In the terminal:
/usr/lib/openoffice.org/program/soffice: line 269:  6372 Segmentation fault      "$sd_prog/$sd_binary" "$@"

** (process:6484): WARNING **: Unknown error forking main binary / abnormal early exit ...

In dmesg:
soffice.bin[6500]: segfault at 00000000 eip 00000000 esp bfd7d42c error 4

I also tried starting the OpenGL game "boson", which in a window complaints that DRI is not activated and then crashes. All apps works just fine if I run them as root, making me suspect a file permission problem somewhere relating to one or more of fglrx's files.


In dmesg:

[fglrx:firegl_addmap] *ERROR* existing map 0xf1159e80 (handle 0xf8d61000)
[fglrx:firegl_addmap] *ERROR* existing map 0xf1159cc0 (handle 0x00000000)

[fglrx] Reserve Block - 1 offset =  0X0 length = 0X1000000
[fglrx] Reserve Block - 2 offset =  0X7fbb000 length = 0X40000

This is in Frugalware -current i686, with kernel 2.6.23-1 and fglrx 8.42.3-2 on a Thinkpad with ATi X1400.
