Nevermind, it still crashes out. I've given in and disabled XGL for now. Anyone have any suggestions?
Just read couple of possible solution here
that I'll try out.
Hi everyone. I couldn't find the answer to my topic anywhere else, so I hope someone here can give me some idea of what's going on.
First off, my PC:
AMD Athlon 3500+ @ 2.2 Ghz
1 GB of RAM
ATI x200 graphics "card" @ 128 MB
I've got a fully updated Opensuse 10.2 with the latest fglrx drivers, beryl, and XGL running.
Some of the OpenGL apps I use in XGL and Beryl will cause X to crash, momentarily showing a command line before going back to the login screen. Usually the programs themselves won't crash, but it would take a combination between the program and an action in Beryl (window animations, maximizing and minimizing, dragging a window with wobbly activated, spinning the cube, etc.) to cause the crash. Second Life and Blender (go figure, my two favorite apps) cause this most frequently.
Originally, I thought it may have been a problem with overheating. However, in Blender, even if I don't perform a render or any real intensive work, X will crash eventually if I do something as simple as highlight a button. Also, I installed NeverWinter Nights on my computer and I'm able to play it for hours (I have no life, If you couldn't tell
) with no sort of slow-down, let alone crashing.
Xorg runs perfectly smooth and fine, but it's darn difficult to give up XGL and all the features it has. It's probably just a simple problem that I'm overlooking, but I hoped to get as much advice as I could.
tl:dr - XGL is being stubborn
