For what it's worth, I've been noticing lockups on my Radeon VE(aka
7000) with DRI-CVS for quite some time (since before 4.3.0 came out).
Particularly with the endgame screenhack from xscreensaver. If I run the
hack from a terminal and it opens a window and does its thing, the
system load goes up quite a bit (while, OTOH, "queens" doesn't seem to
budge the load all that much). Then, if I try to move the window, the X
server will almost immediately lock up. I can still move the mouse, and
the system is still running, so I can log in and kill endgame. However,
This shouldn't happen.
Has anyone else seen this?
I'm using the current dri-cvs (updated March 7th. 2003) with v6 of Charl
Botha's radeon_resume patch on linux 2.4.18 with the swsusp patch applied.
After I updated my cvs tree, I did "make World && make install" and then
built the kernel modules "make TREE=/usr/src/linux/include -f
Makefile.linux" and then copied them to the relevant location, shut down
X, removed the radeon module, and started X again.
Also, whenever I run a GL app, I get this message at the console:
disabling TCL support
Now, I suppose this is to be expected, since the VE doesn't have a TCL,
erm, thing, but it's rather annoying.
Are there perhaps any patches for any of these problems available which
haven't made it to CVS, yet?
