Thread: using opengl ( google earth ) hardlocks X on intel x3100

    Default using opengl ( google earth ) hardlocks X on intel x3100

    hi, i recently installed opensuse 11.0 on my laptop. i previously had mandriva 2008.1 installed which worked fine. however now, if i try to use google earth after a certain amount of time, X will hardlock, and i can't do anything to unlock it except just pressing the power button ( the machine isn't hardlocked, as i have pure-ftpd installed and i can still reach it, also the machine responds to me pressing the power button, it gracefully powers down, stopping services, unmounting my drives, etc. the only thing that doesn't exit is X )

    as it does this the screen goes black, then comes back, but with a hardlocked image. i am running kde 4.1 beta from the buildservice ( KDE:KDE4:Factory ) also the plasma 3d world applet won't even try to run. it gives me the message: "This object could not be created for the following reason: This system does not support OpenGL applets". am i missing something?

    confusingly, kde 3d effects work fine.

    Default Re: using opengl ( google earth ) hardlocks X on intel x3100

    Same problem here trying to run google earth.

    I do not use KDE4 though but the KDE 3.5.9.

    I can run nexuiz but I have experienced the same problem trying to run other windows 3d applications using wine.

    Black screen for a couple of seconds and then X freezes totally.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Or just why this is happening....

    @anyone with this problem:

    Please Add This Into You Xorg.conf ( /etc/X11/xorg.conf ):

    Option "AccelMethod" "exa"
    Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
    Option "ExaNoComposite" "false"

    In The Section "Device" after "VendorName"

    Don't Touch Anything Else.
    If You Are Unsure About What You Are Doing, Please Don't Do It.

    Once You Have Done This Logout, Then Log In Again And Try To Use Google Earth, Other 3D Apps, Etc.

    What Ever You Do: DO NOT USE SAX ( YAST -> Hardware -> Graphics Card & Monitor ) After This, It Will REMOVE These Options!

    FYI: Google Earth Now Works Beautifully.
    FYI2: Its Already Got A Similar Bug Report: #400788, Hopefully An Update Will Fix This In The Future

    Hi Guys. I am using openSuse 11. When I launch Google Earth, my X Server crashes. I am using intel 915GM. Would the same instructions help me as well?

    Thanks. This worked for my Intel 945 board as well. I was having this black screen problem while playing Quake 3 Arena using wine on my OpenSuSE 11.0.

    This worked like a charm.

    Hi to all,
    I have an similar issue. I want to use the the windows version of Google Earth and Picasa3 for GeoTagging, this is not supported with the Linux version so far.

    I use: Laptop HP6715B, OpenSuse11, wine 1.1.16, graphic card: ATI onboard X1200, I think (but looks like it's a wrong assumption) the graphic works fine. glxinfo and glx_glxgears shows the expected results.
    But if I start Google Earth, then the compete screen gets really cloudy, looks like I have the desktop twice on the screen you cant recognize any menu/buttons or icons. I captured the screen , but this picture looks correct, I see my background picture and the message, that Google Earth will start in the Direct X8 mode.

    I hope somebody can help me.
    Thank very much.

    Hi,
    The new ATI Catalyst driver 8.11 from 12-Nov.-08 solve my issue.

    Just to warn all of you: if you upgrade to OpenSUSE 11.1 then you will need to reapply the three items I listed above.

    They had to reverse the default back to what it was because it caused too many problems performance wise for other Intel users :-(
