I tend to use Tux Racer (or whatever name it goes by) as a quick test of video. Ran into a strange thing on LMDE.
Hardware is T30 Thinkpad, Radeon 7500, screen resolution is 1024x768.
When I start Tux Racer, everything looks fine, music plays, menu works. However, when I initiate a race, it crashes, blank screen for a moment, and suddenly my system is now set to 800x600.
If I run in a terminal, I see this:
%%% etracer warning: Attempt to bind to Texture unloaded texture: `b-herring_run_icon'
drmRadeonCmdBuffer: -12. Kernel failed to parse or rejected command stream. See dmesg for more info.
Checking dmesg doesn't tell me anything:
[ 193.838254] [drm:radeon_cs_ioctl] *ERROR* Failed to parse relocation -12!
Not a huge issue for me, but if anybody knows what's going on, or if there's an easy fix, I'd appreciate it.
