Description Andrey Vihrov 2009-03-09 10:43:12 UTC
Whenever I try playing a movie with mplayer and the xv output, the video driver instantly crashes the X server.

I am running Gentoo x86-64, X.org server version is 1.5.3-r3 and my video card is Intel GMA X3100.

The logs produced when using the two available XVideo adaptors with or without a compositing window manager do not seem completely identical to me, so I am attaching them all.

Did my best to reproduce your environment, and fixed this bug:

    Fix XV with non-GEM kernels by allocating a larger fake bufmgr.
    Ideally we'd not be using the EXA offscreen memory manager and just hand all
    that memory to the fake bufmgr for non-GEM, but the fake bufmgr's too slow f
    that, at least currently.  So compromise and take enough memory that it will
    succeed at XV allocations but hopefully not anger tiny-aperture systems too
    Bug #20563.

Thanks for quick resolution. Haven't tested it yet, but I'll report back if the problem reappears.
