Operationally, at least, I seem to resolved my problem with Xorg 6.9.0 and using the Mach32 ATI video card.
I included lines in xorg.conf.new in Section "Device" ... Option "tv_out" "false" Option "tv_standard" "None" I suspect only the latter is necessary but haven't experimented to see. The reason for doing this seems to me to be some bugs in the ATI driver arrangement and Xorg general code. It seems that there are many implementations of strncasecmp in different packages, despite what seems to be a "standard" available in libc (???). Xorg's is xf86strncasecmp and is written so that it goes ahead and dereferences a null pointer if one is passed to it - hence the segment error crash. The null pointer comes from the string TvStd not being initialized when ATIProcessOptions runs with the "Xorg -configure" generated xorg.conf.new file. While I haven't traced how the variable gets defined, by changing the option above, that would seem to be the effect as it quits crashing subsequently. -- Walter M.
