Created attachment 21950 [details] [review] Reference patch to add xf86CrtcConfigInit call to savage driver (not proper solution) In the latest git version of xserver (as of 2009/01/10), the savage driver crashes xserver on startup. After examining the cause with valgrind, it seems that it is apparently missing a call to xf86CrtcConfigInit() in the PreInit function. However, when sending the attached patch to the mailing list, I wondered whether other drivers are broken in the same way. Only ati, intel, siliconmotion and nv have this specific call. Alex Deucher pointed out that all of them are xrandr 1.2 enabled, and this problem possibly hits all other drivers, not just savage.
