Default X server crash on FC6 with 9631 driver

With the new driver and desktop effects enabled when i maximize
and unmaximize googleearth window two or 3 times the X server crash and
go to the login screen. I have to say that i have other problems with
googleearth as i can only see a circle of atmosphere with no globe in
between, only stars. Sometimes maximize and unmaximize the window i can
see the earth just before the X server crash ...

Default Re: X server crash on FC6 with 9631 driver

I have a few questions:
0) Please confirm, both of these problems are only present when Compiz is in use, or even without Compiz when using Gnome/KDE?
1) Please attach /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old immediately after reproducing this problem.
2) Does setting NvAGP to 0 in xorg.conf have any impact on these problems?
3) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS for the motherboard?

Thanks,
Lonni

I don't see an X crash in the X log that you've attached. Its also not the X log that I requested.

NvAGP is added to the Device section of your xorg.conf. See the driver README for more details.

Thanks,
Lonni

Adding Option "NvAGP" "0" to device section change nothing

Do you need something else ? Do you see the X server crash ?
Thanks

No, I'm not able to reproduce this crash, and the files you've attached do not appear to have captured it either.

Default Re: X server crash on FC6 with 9631 driver

what can i do to be sure to capture this crash ?
X server resetting (go back to the login screen) is considered as a server crash ?
Why if this happens there is no trace in the file ?
In fact I reproduce the crash and see that the time on Xorg.0.log.old is older than the crash time so i think there is nothing related to the crash in this file.
Thanks

Eric

Its possible that the X server isn't crashing at all, and something is killing it.

Have you checked dmesg and/or /var/log/messages for errors immediately after this happens?

The only lines i found in /var/log/messages just before and after xserver "crash" :
Dec 11 22:21:18 bureau gconfd (root-12997): Le serveur GConf n'est pas en cours d'utilisation, arręt.

Dec 11 22:22:28 bureau kernel: agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:02:00.0 into 4x mode

I'm not sur it will be usefull.

Sometimes when maximize and unmaximize googleearth window i can see the earth whereas i can only see a circle of atmosphere with no globe in between, only stars. Why i can't see earth normally ?

Thanks

Eric

I'm afraid that I'm not able to reproduce these problems here, and I don't have any other immediate suggestions.
