Default While starting Xawtv, X crashes

If I start latest CVS version of Xawtv, X crashes and asks me for a new login.

I'm with a GEFORCE4 MX 440SE with latest legacy nvidia driver 9631

Default Re: While starting Xawtv, X crashes

The mailing list post that you referenced appears to be discussing an unrelated problem with X server crashes when running any OpenGL application. In that thread, the NVIDIA driver is not correctly installed, as the GLX module is not the module that ships with the NVIDIA driver:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 7.1.1, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3
(==) AIGLX enabled
(II) Loading extension GLX

If you're experiencing the same problem, then you need to fix your NVIDIA driver installation, and if the problem persists generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni

That link was about the X crash with xawtv... but I don't know if it's the same problem...
It's quite strange.
I even tried compiling again the xawtv code, but it crash the same.

Kde tv works so I don't think it's a TV tuner card troubleshooting (I don't want to use kdetv it's really slow and huge)

I don't know how to log the error, because even if I start from Konsole I cannot see the error... here's my nvidia-bug-report.log

You've not corrected your broken NVIDIA driver installation. You need to reinstall the NVIDIA driver.

Oooookei....

I found the way, here's a piece of my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Module"
    Load           "freetype"
    Load           "dbe"
    Load           "type1"
    Load           "v4l"
#    Load           "glx"
    Load           "extmod"
EndSection

That isn't fixing the problem, its just commenting out the GLX module, which isn't correctly installed. You need to (re)install the NVIDIA driver to fix this problem.

Default Re: While starting Xawtv, X crashes

Ok you're right, now I've reinstalled nvidia driver, but the problem was here:

Code:
l
totale 902
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root    280 16 gen 23:34 ./
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root    984 16 gen 23:18 ../
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  18248  9 gen 18:27 libdbe.so*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  30712  9 gen 18:27 libdri.so*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 126672  9 gen 18:27 libextmod.so*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     18 16 gen 23:34 libglx.so -> libglx.so.1.0.9631*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 675436 16 gen 23:34 libglx.so.1.0.9631*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  26476  9 gen 18:27 librecord.so*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  32928  9 gen 18:27 libxtrap.so*
You (driver nvidia) make a little bit confusion between your libglx.so and the xorg-x11-server one....

Anyway the solution I found, I deleted the old libglx, I reinstalled the driver and now is like you can see over.

THANKS
