Description Stuart Anderson 2005-07-14 08:30:23 UTC
The change for bug #2791 to add support for 12 & 30 bit depths causes more 
than MAXFORMATS depths to be created when RENDER is enabled. That overflows 
GCperDepth in the Screen structure and causes a crash. 
 screen #0: 
   dimensions:    1024x768 pixels (260x195 millimeters) 
   resolution:    100x100 dots per inch 
   depths (9):    1, 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, 30, 32, 8 
an additional questions, is why is the screen's depth listed twice? 
Is it safe to just increase MAXFORMATS? or is there a more appropriate

12bpp and 30bpp are disabled in HEAD now, so this isn't an 7.0 issue.

Likewise for 7.1, moving out to 7.2.

... and for 7.2 ...

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2007-11-16 17:18:48 UTC
I'm working on removing MAXFORMATS from the ABI structures.

Updating summary to reflect reality.
