If it helps any, I am having the EXACT same problem with my setup (gentoo,
brand new install, Radeon Mobility 7500. myth worked fine with the normal
ati drivers, crashes with a segfault with the radeon DRI OpenGL drivers. I
have the nvidia use flag turned off. is myth hardcoded to use nvidia for
some reason? Logically, it should not be trying to open /dev/nvidia0 at ALL
if I have nvidia turned off.
