Hi All,

When running couple graphics based testing on RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.3
VM, the xwindow crashes. The xorg is killed because of segmentation error.
In RH6.0 VM, there is no crash in testing. The rpm version of xorg-server
on 5.3 and 6.0 are 1.1.1 and 1.7.7 respectively. Because of the dependency
issue, I can't install 1.7.7 on a RH5 VM. Is there a way to update the
xorg-server to a higher version(1.5 or 1.6 ) I didn't find the suitable
xorg binary rpm for RH5.

If the cause of crash is not inside xorg-server itself, should it be in
graphics driver instead? In my RH5.3 VM, video card is VMware Abstract SVGA
II Adapter. Is there any way to update VMware Abstract SVGA II Adapter
device driver, so xorg won't crash?

I don't have much knowledge about xwindow on Linux. I just want to know how
to solve the crash problem on a RH5 VM

Thanks in advance!
