TORCS crashes after it has loaded
 
I have installed TORCS on Fedora 11. When I launch TORCS it loads up the menu and I can change the settings, but when I click on one of the races it will load the cars and tracks, it will say 'ready' and then it crashes.Here is the terminal output when it runs and crashes:

[root@localhost /]# torcs

Welcome to LQ.

Fedora 11, Celeron 2.66 MHz , 1 GB RAM, Nvidia 6600.

yum search torcs
su
# yum install torcs*
exit
... exit, to run 'torcs' as ordinary user !

May be that is not the problem, but root is
for administrative tasks only, and should be
left immediately, when the task is done. !

So which graphics have you got ?
The above mentioned specs runs torcs perfectly, 1024 x 768.

I can see one problem : you installed a non
Fedora torcs' in /usr/local/.
Better delete it all or make uninstall from
the source code used, if available.

And install the Fedora packages instead :
# ' yum install torcs* ' : the star ( * ) is a wildcard,
installing all torcs, all six packages, incl. all data
( + of course all the dependencies.)

I already installed torcs from the add/remove software program, I only tried the source code after that did not work. I tried the ' yum install torcs* ' command but that only installed these:
torcs-data-tracks-dirt.noarch 0:1.3.1-1
torcs-data-tracks-oval.noarch 0:1.3.1-1

TORCS still has the crashing problem. Is it possible it has anything to do with my graphics card? I notice the name of my graphics card, an ATI Radeon 9200, appears in the error part of the terminal output (I put the radeon part in bold so they are easy to find):

torcs-bin: radeon_common.c:1008: radeon_validate_bo: Assertion `radeon->state.validated_bo_count < 32' failed.

Seems to be a reported bug

May be more info by
googling .. radeon->state.validated_bo_count < 32 ..
