           Summary: X freezes when using Compiz (or other 3D apps) with
                    xserver-xorg-video-ati >1:6.6.3
           Product: xorg
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: Forlong at gmx.de
         QAContact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

I'm sorry, I don't know which version of the radeon driver is in debian's
xserver-xorg-video-ati packages, I hope you can help me out here.

Anyway, here's the problem:
On xserver-xorg-video-ati versions greater than 1:6.6.3 (like in Debian Lenny
or Ubuntu Feisty) the X server freezes when using Compiz or other 3D
applications like tuxracer.

With Compiz on Gutsy (xserver-xorg-video-ati 1:6.7.195) or Hardy (1:6.7.0) it
takes about 20 minutes until it freezes, sometimes less.
X freezes immediately when trying to run a 3D game.

This is not the case on a current install of Debian testing (Lenny) or Ubuntu

I started a bugreport on Launchpad with additional information:

And here's another report for that issue:

I couldn't find any information if the problem is already known around here.
