segmentation fault with Xorg 1.6.1.901 and xinerama
 
1 Attachment(s)
There appears to be a problem with recent distributions (Fedora 11, Ubuntu 9.04, etc) when attempting to run more than two monitors with Xorg and Xinerama with nvidia drivers.


My configuration is:

Fedora 11 x86_64
Xorg 1.6.1.901
nvidia proprietary driver 173.14.18

Nvidia 7950GT PCI-X
Nvidia FX 5200 PCI

When running the xorg.conf detailed in the bug report, X will produce a segmentation fault. This configuration successfully produces 3 working logical screens with xinerama disabled.

Note the segfault on the last two lines of the dmesg section of bug report.

xrdb[3196]: segfault at 30 ip 0000000000402971 sp 00007fff76c83af0 error 4 in xrdb[400000+6000]
gnome-session[3253]: segfault at 8 ip 0000003f7625db60 sp 00007fffa4256180 error 4 in libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0.1600.1[3f76200000+9a000]


Is there a solution for this?

Thanks.

Chris

It's a know bug. See also: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...ighlight-.html

I hope they'll fix it soon.

I can confirm that the issue is gone with nvidia-drivers 260.19.04. Thanks nvidia for solving the issue!

Now, its time for RandR 1.2! :-)
