random lockups, mainly during OpenGL
Hi there. My graphics card is giving me troubles.
I have RedHat ES4, with ATI's latest drivers on my Asus P4C800 motherboard, and an ATI 9500 card.
Yesterday I upgraded my kernel to the latest stable (18.104.22.168?), and I installed ATI's drivers as well, to get DRI working (I never had DRI working before.)
However, ever since then, I get random lockups, mainly while "flying" in flightgear. The mouse moves but that's about it.
I can ssh to the machine and find that the simulator's process, fgfs is using 99.9% of the CPU. Interestingly, I am unable to reboot the machine from that ssh session - shutdown starts and hangs.
This morning it also got stuck while I was just emailing from that machine.
I did a lot of googling but was unable to find a clear-cut answer. Someone suggested to disabled Agp Fastwrites, but my motherboard has no such feature in its BIOS.
Did anyone experience this problem? If so, were you able to solve it?
