Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Totem gives this error message:
The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 425 error_code 11 request_code 133 minor_code 19)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

This is actually an error in the memory management in your driver. I'm pretty sure I've only seen this on the ati driver so I've assigned it there as you did not give any details about your computer. Please reassign to the correct driver if that is not correct.

affects: compiz (Ubuntu) → xserver-xorg-video-ati (Ubuntu)

Actually, it's a nvidia geforce 6600 gt

Hi jamesm51,

Please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn` and `dmesg`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (and maybe Xorg.0.log.old) file from after reproducing this issue. If you're using a custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf please attach that as well.

Thank you for reporting this issue about xserver-xorg-video-nv. Starting with Lucid, Ubuntu is transitioning to using the -nouveau video driver by default instead of -nv. The reason for this change is because upstream development for the -nv driver has been quite slow. We hope bugs will get fixed faster with -nouveau as well.

Because of this, I'm closing this bug report at this time. I'm marking it incomplete because what you describe is probably a valid issue, but we do not have intentions to work on it in Ubuntu. If you would still like to see this issue investigated, I would encourage you to file it upstream.

Please mark this bus as won't fix.

This is not a bug in the -nv driver, which is the official open-source nvidia driver, because the -nv driver doesn't have any 3D acceleration.

It is a bug in the binary nvidia driver; I'm re-assigning to the correct package and removing the incomplete status.

I'm also having the same issue (with compiz enabled) when maximizing the video player.
I'm on 9.10, NVIDIA Driver 190.32, Quadro NVS 110M (256 MB with TurboCache)

My xorg.conf is:

Section "Monitor"
 Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
 Identifier "Default Screen"
 Monitor "Configured Monitor"
 Device "Configured Video Device"
 DefaultDepth 24
EndSection

Section "Module"
 Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
 Identifier "Configured Video Device"
 Driver "nvidia"
 Option "NoLogo" "True"
EndSection

Note that I have
COMPIZ_OPTIONS="$COMPIZ_OPTIONS --indirect-rendering "
in /usr/bin/compiz to avoid the full-screen black windows problem
