    Jaunty hang

    Hi,

    I upgraded to Jaunty over night and other than a problem with free-civ it all seems fine. However, I just tried to open Brutal Chess, which worked under Intrepid, and the system froze. I couldn't switch to another terminal, move the mouse or restart x.

    I had to cut the power and when I tried opening Brutal Chess again the same happened. On a third attempt the whole screen went black and again froze.

    I was told to remove my proprietary drivers when I upgraded, so I'm not sure if that's the issue, but surely the open-source drivers shouldn't hang my system.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    I have an X1400 mobility ATI card.

    A few extra bits of information. I just ran brutal chess with -r -s arguments. These turn off shadows and reflections. This time it worked.

    I tried with just reflections off and it worked then too. (shadows on)

    I tried with just shadows off and the game hung, but the system did not. (reflections on). I also cannot close the game now, even with ctrl+c from terminal or pkill.

    hmm, just tried it again with those arguments and this time it hung, so I guess it may have been a fluke.
