Only after playing movie with mplayer or totem, this problem always happens.

1. login with gdm
2. launch movie player (mplayer or totem).
3. Play moive.
4. Close movie player
5. Logout or shutdown or Reboot.
6. X freezes.

Does this problem persist if you disable the Composite extension in X?
Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?

are you running compiz?
if yes use it with direct rendering (on fedora it uses indirect rendering by default)

Hello!

I have the same problem. I get random freeze with this driver and fedora 7. It usually happen on logout, with compiz, and a 7400 card (laptop).

I'll post my logs on the next freeze.

If I switch to a terminal console (not a virtual terminal), and I ussue a command like:

DISPLAY=:0 metacity --replace &

and go again in the X session, the whole thing works. But if I try to kill compiz from the (virtual) terminal inside the X session (ie, with Gnome Terminal) it freezes immediately.

So this is a problem, it seems with the driver and compiz. I've not seen this with beryl or metacity (but I don't use beryl that much so this can be a bit misleading).

I have the same problem, X usually freezes at exit if I've been running compiz.

This bug can cause severe file system corruption (hard reset everytime you have to log out).

I suggest to disable compiz, or use the 97xx series, until a solution is found.

I don't have gnome environment (kdm, kde...) but I tried to reproduce this with mplayer and xine, however no luck.

But, I remember it happened to me twice, that on logout (shutdown procedure if we are precise), xorg looked like it was frozen, but in the upper-left corner was console, with scrolling text (though it looked strange - green and violet colors, somehow smashed, unreadable).

I was having exact freezes you described in first post, but only with beta driver, 100.14.09 runs fine. I'm also using cvs version of Xorg, so this might be the problem too.

I've attached my xorg.conf, try if it helps.

create a file in /usr/local/bin/ called compiz with this content:
Code:

#!/bin/bash
__GL_YIELD=NOTHING /usr/bin/compiz --direct-rendering  --loose-binding $@

make it executeable (chmod +x /usr/local/bin/compiz)
everything should work fine then ;)

Direct rendering seems to fix the freezing problem but unfortunately, it also triggers the black windows bug.
