Question FreeBSD random bug

This seems to only happen randomly.


I run FreeBSD 6.0-Stable Pentium4 with HT and smp kernel. XFX 6800 128MB with latest drivers. Sometimes X crashes just trying to start an openGL program, sometimes I just get an error about GLXBadDrawable, sometimes everything works perfectly.

Sometimes when I try and play a GL game that I have installed from ports, I get an error:
Code:
$ glasteroids   
X Error of failed request:  GLXBadDrawable
  Major opcode of failed request:  143 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
  Serial number of failed request:  21
  Current serial number in output stream:  21
Sometimes when I try and play linux-enemyterritory Xorg will crash with this error:

Code:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier.
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
When EnemyTerriroty crashes, and I restart Xorg, the problem seems to go away for a few hours and I am able to play games. But then I try playing another game I get the same errors.


Neverwinter Nights just crashes with this error, the same as ET

Code:
SetGrabKeysState - disabled
SetGrabKeysState - enabled
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "800x600"
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier.

   *** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
   *** be the reason for the server aborting.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
Sometimes I also get with NeverWinter Nights:
Code:
 nwn
Saved games will be stored in /home/fozzy/.nwn/saves/
Starting Neverwinter Nights...
X Error of failed request:  GLXBadDrawable
  Major opcode of failed request:  143 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
  Serial number of failed request:  18
  Current serial number in output stream:  18
Since I can reproduce this, randomly when starting games, let me know what other information to include.

Default Re: FreeBSD random bug

Anyone know from installing the driver from ports, where the bug report sh script is located?

There doesn't appear to be a bugreport sh script with the FreeBSD distribution of the driver. I've looked for them as well a while ago when I had some issues with the nvidia driver.

I used to get GL application crashes (and sometimes other programs) until I replaced my motherboard which was suffering from bad caps.

My problem was that the capacitors on my motherboard did not show any physical signs for over two years.

Is there any way to test this? To make sure? Restarting Xorg always fixes the problem.

BTW this happens with the newest drivers too. 1.0-8178

Default FreeBSD GNOME bug!

I have found that Gnome is messing up all SDL applications. Does anyone know why this is? Have simular problems? If I restart X with blackbox, I can run quake4, glgears, etc.

When I use Gnome, I get the errors below.

Any help would be great.
