    Default not sure if this mythtv crash is due to ati driver

    Another problem with my new from scratch htpc build. I'm using archlinux with drm and xf860-video-ati from the git. I setup mysql and during the initial setup of the mythtv backend using mythtv-setup, I got a segfault, and the system logs show the following culprit.

    Apr 19 00:36:20 ruyi kernel: mythtv-setup[4663] general protection ip:7f50987550df sp:7fffa55e7f40 error:0 in libGL.so.1.2[7f509872b000+78000]

    Any possibility this this has something to do with the git drivers. I'm not using them correctly? Or could it be the arch package that's broken? thanks. If in case mythtv-setup helps, here it is:

    Default

    The hiccup is in libGL. I believe that's part of mesa, so make sure you have that installed and working right. MythTV uses GL overlays for a lot of the standard graphics (I think 0.22 and later use it by default, can't remember for sure). That's where I'd start.
