Subject: [gentoo-user] blender crashes X

Hello,

I compiled blender 2.43 and have tried to work through this
introductory tutorial:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro/Modeling_a_Simple_Person.
Blender crashes X windows when I try the extrusion exercise.  This
behaviour is reproducible on the two machines I have tried and has
been described here earlier this year:
http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-blender-maintainers/2007-January/000149.html
but I could find no report of a fix.

On one of those machines I installed blender 2.44 (~x86) but the issue
is still present.  I don't know if the problem is with blender or with
some modification of blender carried out by the ebuild.  My next step
is to attempt to build blender outside portage.  In the meantime, if
anyone has any advice to offer I'd like to hear it.  My emerge --info
is given below.

Thanks,
Roger
