Description Brian Ashe 2003-02-22 21:27:12 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206 Description of problem: XFree86 crashes with... Fatal server error: Caught signal 11. Server aborting ...every time an attempt is made to play any form of media file using either xine or mplayer. Xine will also crash X if merely trying to open it. The machine was upgraded from version 8.0 to Phoebe. Previously, all of this worked fine. It started once Phoebe was installed. The existing xine was from a compiled version of 0.9.13 (libs and ui). Since XFree86 had changed I got the most recent versions 0.9.18 (libs and ui) and the beta libs. It still consistently crashed with a signal 11. I got the latest version of mplayer (0.90rc4-3.2.1) to see if that would work and it too crashed in a similar manner. The crash seems to come when it tries to start playback to the screen. I normally run in KDE, but have tried Gnome and XFCE as well, all with the exact same results. The hardware is as follows... AMD Athlon 650 512 MB RAM Intel Express 3D (i740) Video USB Wacom Intuos Tablet Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): XFree86-22.214.171.1241-20030213.0 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install xine/mplayer 2.Run either Actual Results: X server dies with segfault Expected Results: Movie entertains me.

Please attach/post your XFree config file and log file (text only please). Also might help if you could produce a text file of the errors you get when you play them.

Created attachment 90285 [details] Attachment of XF86Config and XFree86.1.log and xine/mplayer errors I put everything in one file with begin and end seperators.

Created attachment 97320 [details] Additional Comment (trying to add a comment does not work) This exact same behaviour also occurs on my friend's machine which was installed from scratch with RedHat 9, with Xine and MPlayer installed from both rpms and source, X crashes. His system is: Intel i740 graphics card 160MB RAM PIII 400MHz proc

According to the log file, this is an i740 driver bug in my opinion. It will most likely require a sit-down debug session on real hardware in order to figure out what is wrong, and by using the same software you're using. I recommend to report this issue directly to XFree86.org in their bugzilla database at http://bugs.xfree86.org so that the upstream driver maintainer is aware of the issue, and it gets much wider cross-distribution exposure. That will increase the chance that someone can investigate it and fix it sooner. While I do have an i740, the i740 hardware was never that popular, and the number of people using it nowadays is likely very small. The number of those who encounter this problem is likely much smaller than that. I can't really commit resources to this myself when there are so many higher priority bugs open in our bugzilla that affect many more users, so the best bet all around is to report this upstream. If you do report it upstream, paste the URL here, and if a fix becomes available from upstream, I will have a look at it and possibly integrate it.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-24 20:29:23 UTC
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates to the X Window System, which may resolve this issue. We encourage you to upgrade to the latest version of Fedora Core (http://fedora.redhat.com). If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest version of Fedora Core, please file a bug report in the X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component. Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
