Description Devin Henderson 2007-01-29 00:00:47 UTC
Wine will not run for me at all. It crashes right away with the error messages
below. This looks very similar to bug 6735 but I'm on an Intel Pentium M and ATI
FireGL T2 with fglrx (ThinkPad T41p laptop). Wine worked under FC5 but seemingly
ever since I installed FC6 I can't get it to do anything. For example:

Sorry, the reference to bug # 6735 should point here:

Comment 2 Devin Henderson 2007-01-29 01:43:30 UTC
wine.i386                                0.9.29-1.fc6           installed  


kmod-fglrx.i686                          8.33.6- installed       

Comment 3 Andreas Bierfert 2007-01-29 07:55:56 UTC
Did you try without the fglrx stuff installed? Would be great if you could try
that and report back as I don't have ati cards around (atleast non which are
supported by fglrx).

Comment 4 Devin Henderson 2007-01-29 21:52:10 UTC

I uninstalled fglrx and it works! ... Sure hope we can get this fixed. I need
fglrx to take advantage of my video card, but I would also like wine running so
that I can run Internet Explorer (I'm a web developer). Please let me know if I
can give you any more information or if you figure anything out on this. Thanks!

Comment 5 Andreas Bierfert 2007-01-30 00:15:02 UTC
You could check the wine bugzilla and file a bug agains wine but I guess that
they will say that it is a problem with fglrx ... will see if I can find out
more on the issue...

Comment 6 Devin Henderson 2007-01-30 22:30:25 UTC

I had previously reported this bug to and they pointed me in
this direction assumedly because they thought this was a Fedora issue. That bug
can be found here:

Yesterday someone posted a link to this bug:

According to that page, this is a problem with ATI FireGL cards. Supposedly
adding Option "UseFastTLS" "2" to the video card section of xorg.conf will fix
the problem. However, when I added this option to my xorg.conf direct rendering
stopped working :( I tried to restore my xorg.conf but have not been able to get
direct rendering to work again! I don't know what is going on.

I will try to get fglrx working again. In the mean time, can anyone else verify
whether or not adding Option "UseFastTLS" "2" to xorg.conf solves this problem?!


Comment 7 Andreas Bierfert 2007-04-16 15:40:22 UTC
Since fglrx causes a lot of wine problems which are not packaging related I will
close this bug here. Please discuss possible fglrx issues with upstream wine.
Fell free to add more information here on how this issue can be avoided. Maybe
encourage upstream wine to ship a README.fglrx e.g.....
