Gem is crashing X11 in GNU/Linux when using the fglrx graphics driver

Up to Table of Contents

If you're using the fglrx driver & X11 is crashing on opening GEM patches, you need to set the environmental variable of GEM_SINGLE_CONTEXT=1 by adding the following to your ~/.bashrc or /etc/profile:

export GEM_SINGLE_CONTEXT=1

if you are using a different shell (e.g. "tcsh") the procedure might be slightly different.
