I run the game Roller Coaster Tycoon in cedega. The program runs normally, but
when I finish it the X server crashes, and I have to use Alt-SysRq-k to get out.
I've seen occasional crashes that I do not know if they are related. But the
only repeatable case is using cedega; I have no pure OSS test case.
Using xorg-x11-6.8.2-19 from Fedora Core 4 test release 2.

Standalone test case that actually stands alone
The component was changed to Driver/nVidia, but that is most likely incorrect.
I see this problem with other graphics cards too. I attach a configuration
file for a machine with an Matrox Millenium II. Running Roller Coaster Tycoon
on this machine fails in the same way.
starting with the 220.127.116.11 snapshot, on linux systems, the X server can print
its own backtrace when it crashes. please confirm that these bugs are still
valid with 18.104.22.168 or later, and if they are please attach a the server log
from the crash.
I will do that. I have understood the X tree isn't the easiest thing to
rebuild. Therefore I will wait a bit and see if RPMs appear in Fedora's
How's that backtrace going?
Oh, yes! Roller Coaster Tycoon was replaced by other games on our local
top-ten, so I forgot.
But I'll do an upgrade of a machine to FC5 and see if the problem is still there
in the resent version.
Update: It's not easy to reproduce any more. I've done some different tests but
do not get the problem. It looks like it has been fixed.
I want to upgrade and test on one more machine with different hardware before I
completely close this. But it looks good so far.
Closing this one as the problem seems to be fixed.
