Re: Java3D crashes Xserver

Hi Kevin,

i have also had this problem in the past as soon
as we upgraded to Red Hat 7.0 and 7.1.  We fixed
it by installing the latest video card driver.
We had a card that needed an update.  The
driver was a free download from the video
card driver's manufacturer.  Hope this
helps.

-cheers, bob
