Default X-terminal-emulator kills X

Users,

Launching X-terminal-emulator immediately
kills X in Debian Lenny, kernel 2.6.26+17,
Xfce4, running on an IBM NetVista 6578-RAU.
The screen is left with a pattern reminiscent
of cloth from a malfunctioning loom. The
same system on a generic PC has no such

problem.

Nothing I found in lists or in bugs helped.
Any ideas?

Thanks, ... P. Crawford

A little more specifically,
netvista:~# lsmod | grep intel
...
intel_agp 22332 1
agpgart 28776 2 intel_agp

In another machine, an easy solution might be to add
a PCI video card. This machine has only 3 PCI sockets
and all are occupied.

And there's nothing in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old?

=== /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old ===
...
(WW) intel(0): DRI is disabled because it runs only at 16-bit depth.
...
(WW) intel(0): xf86AllocateGARTMemory: allocation of 1024 pages failed
(Cannot allocate memory)
...
(**) intel(0): DPMS enabled
(WW) intel(0): Direct rendering disabled
...
(WW) intel(0): xf86UnMapVidMem: cannot find region for [0xb3965000,0x3000000]
FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.
=== /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old ===

If the default depth in /etc/X11/xorg.conf is changed
from 24 to 16 direct rendering succeeds. Appears
that among all the applications here, xfce4-terminal
is the only one unable to live without DR.

Two minor problems remain.

=== /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old ===
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed
drmOpenByBusid: Searching for BusID pci:0000:00:02.0
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is 8, (OK)
...
(WW) AIGLX: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x23
...
(WW) AIGLX: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x32
=== /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old ===

Specifying the location of drmDevice might save
X from searching for it and specifying absence of
AIGLX: 3D might also save a little time.

Thanks for the tips, ... p. crawford
