Description Christophe Oosterlynck 2012-05-08 09:05:35 CDT
Description of problem:

My Qt OpenGL application which shows some videos and flashes crashes with a segmentation fault in fglrx_dri.so. Attached is a simplified situation able to reproduce the crash.

Steps to reproduce:
Run my example and wait  for it to crash. Should happen in first few minutes after starting the application. Running the application right after a cold boot usually triggers the crash early after starting the example.

My system:
Platform based on AMD G-series T56N
Ubuntu 11.10 x86 with Catalyst 12.3 (shipped with ubuntu) or 12.4 (installed manually)

This message is a reminder that your bug is marked as Catalyst 12.4.

The current Catalyst version is 13.4.

Approximately 7 days from now the Bugzilla administrator will be removing the 12.4 version. At that time your bug will be CLOSED as WONTFIX.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue. However, the Bugzilla administrator provides this as a unofficial, free service to AMD customers, and I like to keep my systems neat and tidy. If you would like to keep your bug from being closed, please try a new Catalyst version and update the 'version' field if the issue still occurs.

If you are unable to update the version, please make a comment and someone will change it for you.
Comment 5 Michael Cronenworth 2013-05-08 00:03:49 CDT
This bug is being closed due to the 'version' being 12.4 after 14 days of the previous closure notice.

Thank you for your bug report.
