    OpenGL freezes the computer


    I seem to have a problem here... If I run opengl-games they work fine to begin with, but after a while they'll make the computer freeze... Then not even ctrl+alt+backspace will get me out, I will have to reboot the computer by pressing the power-button. Is this just a bug in the applications? I have noticed this in tuxkart, bzflag and some games like that, but I have not seen this happen in celestia or cube before...

    Do somebody know whats wrong, is there a memory-leak or whats happening? This happens in both gentoo and ubuntu for the mentioned games, plus some more which I cant remember.

    Just tell me if you need my xorg.conf...

    Does anyone know what at all causes the computer to hang in a way that the screen freezes and you can't get out?

    But aren't there any suggestions at all???

    Drivers

    1. What type of video card are you using?
    2. Are your drivers up-to-date?
    3. Check permissions on your game folder.
    4. Gentoo requires that you be in the Games group.

    Just a some things to check.
