GLXGEARS crahes system?? Leaving MINT :(

Postby kingtux on Sun Apr 13, 2008 4:03 pm

Hello All,

I'm running "Daryna" on a brandnew Dell Latitiude D630 which is has...
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)

And is running the "intel" driver....I am running compiz fine and everything is working fine but when I try to run glxgears to get some stats it crashes my machine??

If I do an glxinfo I noticed that "DRI" is not enabled? Is that the problem?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I've tried adding the modules load section and DRI sections in my xorg.conf....
when I restart X gdm doesn't come on?

I'm not sure what I need to do get DRI AND GLX working???
