    First of all, I'm aware that the used GPU (AMD X1400, DirectX 9c, Shader 3.0, 256MB) is actually far below recommended specs and that I'm also using the open source driver, so I'm not entitled for support.

    However, this card should be able to run PA with shadows turned off and all details on minimum, if it wasn't for a crash. Got enough games running on that card, despite it being so old.

    Version of libgl1-mesa-dri is 9.0.3

    I'd contact the r300 folks, they can probably give you some debug options to turn out that will tell them why the shader is causing it to crash.

    Just launched using gallium r600 (amd TURKS). Looks fine, runs even on "uber", although slowly. Can't see fps, but feels like ~15 on calm spots (with lots of units&explosions perhaps it'll be even less).

    So the problem is either something r300 specific or the hardware. Or just try to update the mesa, I'm using the latest Mesa 9.2.0-devel (git-ce1f851).

    Press "P" in game, it'w will show FPS information.

    I will try with 9.1.3 first before I start experimenting with unstable versions. Reports follow as soon as distro upgrade has finished.

    9.1.3 didn't solve the issue, but I managed to identify the reason for the crash and it won't be fixed in 9.2 either, at least not the cause of the SIGSEGV.

    struct rc_list * rc_variable_list_get_writers_one_reader(
    	struct rc_list * var_list,
    	unsigned int src_type,
    	void * src)
    	struct rc_list * writer_list =
    		rc_variable_list_get_writers(var_list, src_type, src);
    	struct rc_list * reader_list =
    	if (rc_list_count(reader_list) > 1) {
    		return NULL;
    	} else {
    		return writer_list;
    That part crashes at "writer_list->Item", most likely because writer_list is NULL. rc_variable_list_get_writers can return NULL if a variable is read without being ever set.

    Tried it again with RADEON_DEBUG=noopt (because that error happens during shader optimization), but that won't work either (although for a different reason):
    One of the fragment shaders (most likely the terrain shader with the virtual texturing stuff) is to big for my poor old X1400. -.-

    Next step: Breaking my system git version of Mesa, hoping that some of the fixes on the optimizer which have been made for Unigine Heaven 3.0 will also fix the issue with the PA shader...

    And it did work.
    peephole_mul_omod() is fixed in 9.2.x, the Ubuntu xorg-edgers PPA has a version of the mesa package which is functional.

    Surprisingly enough, it works. Somehow. Partly...

    It think memory management can be considered utterly broken in that driver. For sure.
    And the performance isn't very appealing either yet, although playable. Which IS surprising.

    I suspected for over a year that memory management is broken (overlapping memory section), but this can be considered proof...
