Default glxgears and armagetron die with SIGABRT

I just installed 1.0.8774 into Debian Sarge with backported kernel 2.6.14-2-386 and my system has the AMD K-6.

Both glxgears and armagetron die with status 134, printing "Aborted".

I also have the minor complaint during the install involving the sanity check for the library, expecting libnvidia-tls in /usr/lib/tls, when it is also found in /usr/lib. From a previous post, I suspect this is unimportant.

I had previously tried 1.0.7174 from Debian's sources, but it does not work due to the K-6 not having PAT.

Does the problem with OpenGL applications reproduce if you disable AGP support? As to the sanity check, `nvidia-installer` decides which TLS libraries to install (with a small test program run at installation time), either both the old-style and the new-style libraries or only the old-style libraries, based on the dynamic loader's capabilities; if the test application works with the new-style TLS libraries and both sets of libraries are installed, the sanity check expects the new-style TLS libraries to be picked up by the dynamic loader.

Removing agp from X11 did not help. I enclose a new bug report log.

I should add that the abort appears to occur a random time after the program starts. So far other tools in X have been solid.

I got a core from glxgears:

#0 0x4021c741 in kill () from /lib/libc.so.6
(gdb) bt
#0 0x4021c741 in kill () from /lib/libc.so.6
#1 0x40187771 in pthread_kill () from /lib/libpthread.so.0
#2 0x40187a7b in raise () from /lib/libpthread.so.0
#3 0x4021c4d4 in raise () from /lib/libc.so.6
#4 0x4021da08 in abort () from /lib/libc.so.6
#5 0x406c5d85 in _nv000106gl () from /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1

Also, a message flew by on the first reboot after the install that libraries under tls were being deleted, and the only tls libraries are now in /usr/lib. The message is not in /var/log/messages.

@debian-fan: do you have any other stability problems with the system? The TLS symlink deletion is performed by /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx, which is left behind by Debian's nvidia-glx unless removed without the --purge option; it is recommended that you delete this script and re-install the driver (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=72490).

As to stability:

I swapped video boards with my Windows machine, and the nVidia board works great under Windows XP.

My Linux machine worked fine for over a year on Sarge until the Radeon 7200 (I think that is what it was) died.

For my solution I took out nVidia, put in the Radeon 9200 from my Windows XP machine, XFree86 Radeon driver, AGP enabled, xlibmesa stuff, and all is well. glxgears and Armatgetron work just fine now at least for 20 minutes, and would die within a minute with nVidia.

Other than 3D, the Linux machine worked fine with nVidia.

I think this solves my problem.
