I'm not sure if this is the right place to submit this. Maybe it should be a bugreport? I had trouble locating the correct bug tracker.

This is an up-to-date gentoo system with this video card: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV620 [FirePro 2260]

and this driver: x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati 6.14.0

$ rosrun rviz rviz

Are those the "official" ATI drivers or an open-source ATI driver, not the one provided by AMD? (E.g. the diff between the Nouveau drivers for Nvidia versus the binaries Nvidia provides)

As for where to file the bug report, I believe you want to file it in the ros-pkg Trac, with 'visualization' as the component. (Click the "report bugs" link at the bottom of the visualization stack wiki page)

BTW, I have a segfault-on-startup bug filed for rviz, though with different video hardware: #4830

Thanks! I've created my bug report: #4865
