Well, it certainly makes it difficult to upgrade in the usual way...
For the information of the list, I have just upgraded my Fedora Core 3=20
installation to kernel 2.6.11-1.27_FC3, and the drm and radeon modules=20
are now dynamically loaded (thank you Fedora folk!).
Interestingly, the combination of drivers I am currently running do not=20
exhibit the original problem (SIGSEGV), so it *may* have been solved by=20
newer drivers, that I was previously unable to load or test.
I say *may* because the programs that exhibited the original crash now=20
behave differently, indicating that perhaps hardware rendering is not=20
being used in some situations where it was previously, which could be=20
masking the original problem.
Thank you to everyone, particularly Philipp Klaus Krause, khaqq, Michel=20
D=E4nzer, and Dave Airlie for your help and patience. I am now in a good=20
position to actually debug any further problems I may find. :o)
