Default Re: glxgears makes x to crash

glxgears is a very simple example of OpenGL, its purpose is only to show that the renderer is working and a relative speed it is capable of.. a benchmark or test suite it is not.

One good way to test out heavier load rendering is to install a game! Americas Army Ops is free.. OpenGL.. and yeah, also free. (still not a test suite)

I don't know where you can get real cad quality test suites that will work. You might try installing and working with blender or another free modeler as well.
