Alright... Here's the first results :-)
With a Radeon Mobility M6 and the bsd-3-0-0 branch, I get X locking up
when I run any GL application. If I launch glxgears (or any other gl app
that I've tried so far) from an xterm, I get:
disabling TCL support
radeonUpdatePageFlipping allow 0 current 0
I get the outline of the window for the application, but that's it.
Everything window below the application is still visible.
I can sitll move my mouse around, but the keyboard won't respond, and I
can't kill the GL app or the X server. I have to ssh in to the machine
If I set LIBGL_DEBUB to verbose, I get some extra info, but nothing
unusual or particularly telling.
Unfortunately, I haven't actually updated the main branch of the DRI on
this machine in at least a couple of weeks, so I'm not positive if this
problem is specific to the bsd branch. I'll pull the main branch in a
little bit and give it a whirl.
On to the 7200...
Everything seemed to work fine when I first started... glxgears gave
comparable speeds to the main branch. A variety of the GL xscreensaver
apps ran smoothly. gltron ran fine, as did tuxkart. I don't have any
really big GL games (ie. games from Loki) on this machine to test with.
I did manage to get a lockup (similar to the one I mentioned above) when I
started engine (xscreensaver app) and then started circuit (xscreensaver
app, too) at the same time. However, I didn't have that same problem when
I started up glxgears twice.
Anyway, this particular machine is my machine at work, so I'll have to
stop testing for the time being.
I'll try to get to the 7500 tonight.
