Games like snipes or orbital-eunuchs-sniper are crashing my X server.
I use the latest X Window System Version 6.8.2 with a 2.6.12 kernel. Hardware is the iBookG3 with 16MB Ati.
messages only sais:
Code:
gdm[17147]: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Schwerwiegender X-Fehler - :0 wird neu gestartet
which means fatal X error, restarting :0.
Chromium and raptor2 are working. Chromium is even really smooth and fast.

Also applications such as xfsamba are crashing my X-Server.
I even switched now to xorg ~ppc 6.8.2-r6, because I heard it should be more stable.

Try turning kernel pre-empt off in your kernel config, that may solve some problems.

I found out what made X crashing. I had Option "Composite" enabled. It is solved with that entry:
Code:
Section "Extensions"
        #Option         "Composite"     "Disable"       # Experimental          # unstable for some games
        Option          "RENDER"        "Enable"
EndSection
