Default Lockup when Using Direct Rendering

I have a Linux station running RedHat 7.3 and a GeForceFX 5200 card. I have an OpenGL application that uses a context specified with Direct Rendering on. While the application is running, if I attempt to move another X window or do any other normal desktop activities, the machine locks instantly with no recovery but rebooting.

If I turn off the direct rendering flag, it works fine. I have the latest 6111 nVidia driver. I don't think my configuration or log files are relevant since the system runs fine in every other respect and always has.

Are there known issue using direct rendering in OpenGL with nVidia cards and drivers. Note that this also happened on my previous GeForce 2 MX card. My new FX card is PCI and the old card was AGP. Turning off fast writes is not an option since this new card is PCI and doesn't have that option.

Default Re: Lockup when Using Direct Rendering

and your distribution is totally outdated.

And since you have lockups, your setup is NOT fine, so your confs and logs would be interessting. At least, to get a picture about your situation.
