What other informations do you need to understand the problem ?
Thanks for your help
Can you try with 6.9 or 7.0 ?
Same symptoms with xorg 7.0.
If you can provide a static binary with symbols, I can try it and check where it
is locked in 7.0.
Why would you need a static binary ?
I just need a binary with debbuging symbols that would run on my Ubuntu 5.10
distro without breaking my existing installation.
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
This is a common bug, not specific to linux/an arch. Marking as duplicate as the other bug report has more info
