Default OpenGL fullscreen games crashes X

Hi
I have an NVIDIA 6150LE graphics card with the 1-9746 drivers. Fullscreen opengl games crash XFree86. Wans't this supposed to be fixed and why is it happening to me? This also happens with the latest CUDA 1-9751 drivers


Any ideas?

If you are using XFree86, the X server is probably too old (for recent nvidia driver releases). Most use Xorg 7.2. Which distro/version do you have?

Most probably XFree is too old. I'm trying to upgrade to Xorg.

Thanks

even with Xorg 7.1, the games crash.
here's my xorg.conf:

Without seeing a nvidia bug report which is better for diagnosis, remove this from the conf,
Code:
Load "dri"

Ok, i read the post and ran the bug report utility. This crash happened with Xfree and xorg 7.1 and xorg 7.1.99.

Thanks for your patience!

I have a few questions:
0) Specifically which games are crashing?
1) Does this problem persist if you're not using the Composite extension in xorg.conf ?
2) Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?

thanks,
Lonni

all fullscreen apps that use open gl crash eg. tremulous, chromium, even the open gl visualizations with amarok in fullscreen.

Windowed works perfectly though.

I don't know how to check whether I'm using the latest bios or not. How do I do that?

I'll tell you what happens when I disable composite.

dmidecode output shows the BIOS version you're using. You'd need to check the motherboard vendor's website for updates.
