Default dual card crash problem

Hi,

I have an AGP geforce fx 5200 (128mb) and one PCI Matrox Millenium (4mb).

Each is connected to one monitor.

2D works fine.

But when I try to:
start a 3d game
or
type glxinfo
or
start a film on the matrox card

X restarts without any messages in the log file.
Following my xorg.conf:

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

oh, there is no difference if Backingstore is enabled or disabled, or DRI removed or not.

Does maybe someone has an idea?

Default Re: dual card crash problem

Hello
I get the same symptoms using ATI Rage Mach 64 PCI secondary to on-board MX 400.
This hardware worked fine until sometime after 6629 .. take a look at appendix V of
the readme at 7174. I dunno why, but ... looks like the nvidia ATI/Matrox mix is
suddenly a problem. polly

Exclamation Re: dual card crash problem

a bit lait, bit isn't it recomended to comment out DRI in favor of GLX?
It just so happens that these two cards use DRI and GLX respectively which is a 'boo-boo' prone mix?
