When I run multiple opengl apps at the same time X crashes. For example, if,
in KDE, I browse through the opengl screensavers and I hit the properties
button where two opengl windows are visible at the same time, x.org goes down
and starts back up over and over again until I reboot the computer. When I
press the power button on my laptop to restart the computer the resulting
framebuffer window is tiled 4 times with some messed up colors. Also, playing
videos creates pink and green banding on the screen in areas outside of the
video playback region, also causing random crashes during video playback.
Sorry if there's so much ambiguity around this, but I don't know how else to
report all these problems. If you have any ideas of things to try to eliminate
certain variables, let me know.
If you've got the capability try and compile the CVS and give that a try.
Oh, and it might be worth attaching a log from /var/log/Xorg.0.log when the
Xserver crashes so I can determine what's causing it.
Have you had chance to try CVS, or even attach a log file ??
Closing. Re-open when you can provide more information.
More information required. Marking INVALID.

Here is a copy of the Xorg.0.log file after X crashes and then restarts
Sorry I took so long to get back, I was out of town and away from my computer
for a couple of weeks.
I have reproduced the bug here again, and attached a crash log. The way X is
crashing is that it first fails when playing a video, and then restarts
continuously. The log file I have sent is from after it starts looping. I will
try to get one for the first crash here this afternoon, but it might be
I have not been able to try the cvs version.

starting with the 18.104.22.168 snapshot, on linux systems, the X server can print
its own backtrace when it crashes. please confirm that these bugs are still
valid with 22.214.171.124 or later, and if they are please attach a the server log
from the crash.
You could also try my replacement video driver at
http://www.fairlite.demon.co.uk/intel.html and see if that cures your problem.
I'm pretty sure the driver on my homepage will fix your Xv related issues as it
has for many others.
If it doesn't re-open this bug with a log file from that driver.
