Description Clemens 2008-07-05 08:29:21 UTC

the wine developers sended me to this page... hopefully im right here. They said it must be a driver bug - I have an integrated Intel X3100 GMA965 graphic card.

The problem occurs while playing Warcraft III under wine, most of the time while changing between gnome and Warcraft (Alt+Tab or something like that) or the other way round. Then randomly X crashes, so that nothing work (not CTRL+Alt+Backspace nor anything other) aside from a hardware reset.

This occures since I startet playing Warcraft III, this was the driver version of Ubuntu 7.10, atm I can't reach packages.ubuntu.com to look wich version it was. It doesn't matter if its 64 or 32-Bit, i tried different Ubuntu and Archlinux
versions, with different versions of mesa/X/drivers.

Maybe it's worth mentioning that the applications in the background are still working when the crash occurs, I can remember a day where I was voice chatting via mumble and it was still working after the crash - nevertheless i couldn't do anything but a hardware reset.

So i think this isn't much information - if I can do anything to provide you more information to fix this, please ask me.

It seems you've been gone further than bug#16084.

Please attach your Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf. If it's X crash, it would be good to get backtrace. See http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/how_to_report_bug.html.

The xorg.conf from my ubuntu 8.04 system.

My Xorg.0.log file... I dunno if I should post it directly after a crash? This file is from now, without a crash, just looked for the file and posted it.

Comment 5 Clemens 2008-07-06 02:20:46 UTC
Thanks for your answer. I posted the files now - I'm not sure if it would have been better to produce a crash and then post these files?

Here's some more information:

System environment: 
-- chipset: G965
-- system architecture: atm i686 - had the same problem with x86_64
-- xf86-video-intel: 2.2.1 - package: 2:2.2.1-1ubuntu13.4
-- xserver: 1.4.1 package: 2:1.4.1~git20080131-1ubuntu9.2
-- mesa: mesa-7.0.3 RC2
-- drm: 2.3.0
-- kernel: 2.6.24-19-generic
-- Linux distribution: Ubuntu
-- Machine or mobo model: Lenovo ThinkPad R61

Reproducing steps:

Start and - if you like - play Warcraft.. just changing several times between gnome and Wacraft and it should freezes the screen soon. There is no garbling, it's just a still picture.
Comment 6 Clemens 2008-07-11 05:40:46 UTC
Update: It also happens sometimes ingame - not only when I switch between gnome and Warcraft.

And just for my information: Does my attachments helped you? Can I do anything else to help you solving this bug? And of course the question: Do you know what it is, will it be fixed in a future release? ;)
Comment 7 Zdenek Kabelac 2008-07-11 14:57:15 UTC
Hmm - another one which seems to be closely related to my bug #16664 - same symptoms  even similar hardware  (T61 x R61)
Comment 8 Eric Anholt 2009-01-07 01:55:45 UTC
the log files are only really interesting after the failure has occurred.
Comment 9 Ian Romanick 2009-05-07 16:04:58 UTC
I am unable to reproduce this with current Mesa master and DRI2.  Are you still seeing this bug?
Comment 10 Jesse Barnes 2009-05-11 11:21:28 UTC
Adjusting severity: crashes & hangs should be marked critical.
Comment 11 Ian Romanick 2009-05-14 11:39:48 UTC
Closing.  I cannot reproduce, and the submitter is MIA.  Please open a new bug if additional problems are encountered in this game on the 965 driver.
