Hi, I'm using Mathematica 7.0.1 on Debian testing with the open source radeon driver (xserver-xorg-video-radeon 1:6.12.3-1). Every time I use Plot3d, I get a blank image first. If I then rotate the plot, I see the 3d surface. After stopping the rotation Mathematica crashes and I get the following output: failed to create pixmap failed to create pixmap failed to create pixmap Mathematica: radeon_lock.c:65: radeonGetLock: Assertion `drawable !((void *)0) Is there someone else with this problem? The only (partial) solution I found so far is to start Mathematica using the "-mesa" option which makes rotating 3d plots rather slow. Best regards Nils
