After upgrading package xserver-xorg-core
to the latest version (apt-get upgrade), Wine (0.9.28) is causing the X server to crash. Wasn't doing this before the upgrade. Upgraded package version is 1:1.1.1-0ubuntu12.1. Can I request a downgrade? What version number should I use for that?
[Edit]I just downgraded it to 1:1.1.1-0ubuntu12 and Wine still causes X to crash. I am positive that this system wasn't doing this like the day before yesterday. And I didn't switch versions of Wine or anything like that...
[Another Edit] Just grabbed Wine 0.9.29 from WineHQ's APT repository and still no go. Anyone getting the same problem?
[Yet Another Edit] I just found out that the problem isn't restricted to Wine. ZSNES, MAME and StepMania all crashed the X server and got me back to the login prompt. All of them used to work. I'm totally clueless as what the problem might be... any help is most appreciated.
[Enough already!!] I found the cause of the problem - it's OpenGL-related. All programs I mentioned use OpenGL (at the exception of Wine, at least I didn't know until now - it must be for DirectX emulation or something). MAME worked when setting its video output to software mode. Looking further...
[You just like editing, don't you?] Finally solved. I decided to edit and leave it here for future (and for other users', if need be) reference... I think the new X server didn't like something about NVIDIA's binary driver, so... I compiled a new kernel (2.6.19, straight from www.kernel.org
), installed the latest NVIDIA driver on it, and... after hours of configuring, compiling, setting boot options etc., the problem is gone!
