Backtrace Xbmc 10.1 libgl 7.10.3 after SIGTERM

Confirmed on x86_64 and x86, Arch, Fedora, Gentoo & Ubuntu

libgl 7.10.3 and libgl 7.11 conflict with xbmc 10.1 causing xbmc to lock up on exit.

Downgrading to libgl 7.10.2 resolves ths issue.

Backtrace of xbmc 10.1 with libgl 7.10.3 attached. As xbmc locks up, I am only able to get the trace after the xbmc process is killed.

This is also reported on xbmc bug tracker http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/11690

Steps to reproduce:

Install xbmc 10.1 and libgl 7.10.3
Launch xbmc 10.1
Select Exit / Reboot / Shutdown option in xbmc 10.1
Application hangs on exit.
Comment 1 Ian Romanick 2011-07-14 10:14:00 UTC
Below is the top bit of the stacktrace from the Xbmc bugzilla.  This seems to point the finger at some GLX changes.  The only GLX changes in 7.10.3 are related to Darwin builds (unlikely to be the problem) or Henri's display destruction clean ups (43ad25ba and db17691).

Is there any chance of getting a bisect?

I suspect db17691, because of __glXInitialize() being called while already under _Xglobal_lock. I'm not sure why this doesn't happen for me though, it behaves as a recursive lock here. Did _Xglobal_lock change to being recursive at some point? Does the attached patch (only briefly tested) make it any better?
Comment 3 Padfoot 2011-07-15 13:55:00 UTC
Compiling patched version. Will report back.

Backtrace Xbmc 10.1 liibgl-7.10.3 (patched)

Patched version 7.10.3 works.

Xbmc 10.1 now exits cleanly (as shown in new backtrace attached).

(Tested on 32 bit Arch kernel

This is a slightly modified version of the same patch. If it's not too much trouble, could you give this one a try as well? If it still works I'll push it.
Comment 6 Rider 2011-07-19 04:55:29 UTC
new patch works on i686 Arch Linux (
Comment 7 Padfoot 2011-07-19 14:55:50 UTC
Compiling with modified patch.
Comment 8 Padfoot 2011-07-19 15:53:15 UTC

Modified patch works on x86 & x86_64 Arch

Thankyou so much for your speedy resolution.

Comment 9 daytooner 2011-08-19 16:57:41 UTC
This problem still exists for me:

Eedora 15 x86-64
xbmc 10.1

(Note: mesa-lebGL is from the Fedora repositories.)

Comment 10 Padfoot 2011-08-20 00:49:40 UTC
@ daytooner:

Refer to your version of libgl: mesa-libGL-7.11-0.16.20110709.0.fc15.x86_64

Your version was packaged on 9 July. The patched version was released after 19 July.

You need to update to the latest version for the resolution.
