I am running Mandriva 2006 on an Acer Aspire 3000 laptop. The video card
in question is an SiS M760GX, 64MB. The system installed fine with no
issue's. The desktop I always use is KDE 3.4 I believe is what Mandriva
If I run an openGL app in KDE (a windowed mode openGL app) it seemingly
works fine; I can use the app, the graphics work fine. However, if I
try to move the window or switch to fullscreen mode KDE terminates
smoothly and I'm back at the KDM login screen. This problem includes
apps as simple as glxgears to some more heavy games. I was surprised
when glxgears did the same thing, at first I thought this was an SDL
issue but glxgears doesn't use SDL. So that leads me to my next test.
I tried failsafe mode and ran the same apps, they all work 100% fine.
Not a single problem for any of them, I can move em, fullscreen, they
So I dismissed SDL as the culprit, it cannot be OpenGL since I got it
working just fine in failsafe. I do believe KDE is a more likely
canditate which is why I'm posting here.
Any logs I should post?
Any sort of information needed?
