Description Göran Uddeborg 2005-04-18 09:11:53 UTC
I run the game Roller Coaster Tycoon in cedega. The program runs normally, but when I finish it the X server crashes, and I have to use Alt-SysRq-k to get out. I've seen occasional crashes that I do not know if they are related. But the only repeatable case is using cedega; I have no pure OSS test case. Using xorg-x11-6.8.2-19 from Fedora Core 4 test release 2.

Created attachment 2449 [details] Configuration file

Created attachment 2451 [details] X server log file when just starting cedega/rct, and immediately exiting

Created attachment 3021 [details] Standalone test case that actually stands alone The component was changed to Driver/nVidia, but that is most likely incorrect. I see this problem with other graphics cards too. I attach a configuration file for a machine with an Matrox Millenium II. Running Roller Coaster Tycoon on this machine fails in the same way.

starting with the 220.127.116.11 snapshot, on linux systems, the X server can print its own backtrace when it crashes. please confirm that these bugs are still valid with 18.104.22.168 or later, and if they are please attach a the server log from the crash.
Comment 5 Göran Uddeborg 2005-07-03 15:01:45 UTC
I will do that. I have understood the X tree isn't the easiest thing to rebuild. Therefore I will wait a bit and see if RPMs appear in Fedora's development area.

How's that backtrace going?
Comment 7 Göran Uddeborg 2006-04-25 06:20:23 UTC
Oh, yes! Roller Coaster Tycoon was replaced by other games on our local top-ten, so I forgot. But I'll do an upgrade of a machine to FC5 and see if the problem is still there in the resent version.

Update: It's not easy to reproduce any more. I've done some different tests but do not get the problem. It looks like it has been fixed. I want to upgrade and test on one more machine with different hardware before I completely close this. But it looks good so far.
Comment 9 Erik Andren 2006-05-31 01:44:51 UTC
Closing this one as the problem seems to be fixed.
