Blender on ATI Mobility/IGP in Gutsy

Asked by BentFX on 2007-10-30

Hi,

I am new to the whole bug report thing, so please bear with me.

I am affected by [Bug 151985] blender always crashes.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/blender/+bug/151985

Launching Blender I get...
$ blender [-w|-W]

guessing 'blender-bin' == '/usr/bin/blender-bin'
Compiled with Python version 2.5.1.
Checking for installed Python... got it!
/usr/bin/blender: line 46: 7876 Segmentation fault blender-bin "$@"

I also have problems in Wings3D...

Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5.5 [source] [async-threads:0] [kernel-poll:false]

                                     {wings_plugin,init_plugins,1},
                                     {wings,init,1}]}}

Wings fails with a black drawing area... and dragging the window corrupts its display.

After having had this laptop with Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350M chip for some time now. I know that the xorg-ati drivers IGP capability is a relatively recent addition.

My question is... Do you guys communicate? I don't believe that this is strictly a Blender issue, but I do want a resolution. Where else should this bug be posted, to give the greatest likelihood of a timely solution?

Thanks!

Hi

I don't know if I can help, but I had to tweak my system to get my IGP320M running
(random notes from http://rzr.online.fr/q/IGP )

Which laptop is it ?

Do you have DRI at least ?

please report :

glxinfo

then try out :

glxgears

Regards

Mine is the IGP340 on Compaq Presario 2100 (2135us)

Anyhow I'm primarily using Windows again. I think after watching the evolution of the IGP support in X that the problem is in the drivers, and how updates to drivers and programs sometimes clash.

I do have DRI, and run glxgears at about 600fps.

I've got an opengl project I'm working on and see no problems in the simple code I'm using. I've got all the pretty windows effects shut off and can make things work.

Thanks for the reply.
