Epox 8RDA+ & Matrox G550: X freezes after start of glxgears
 
Hello,

I'm having problems using 3D acceleration with a Matrox G550 on an Epox 8RDA+-mainboard (nForce2 chipset). The system is running on SuSE 8.2 with kernel 2.4.21 and is not overclocked. Without 3D acceleration, everything works fine.

When DRI/GLX is enabled for hardware acceleration, the machine just hangs up after starting glxgears. I get a window with black content. A 'sleep 120; reboot' in a second xterm still lets the box reboot.

The following messages can be found in /var/log/messages:

Recently upgraded to Kernel 2.4.22-bk4 and glxgears, tuxracer etc. are working. FYI: I get around 750fps in glxgears.
