Im running ubuntu 12.04 and sometimes mathematica 9.0 crashes when I have Dynamic Content or graphics 3d. I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone else? I wouldn't be surprised if this is a problem specific to the settings on my machine but i figured it is worth asking. I get the following error message:

X Error of failed request:  GLXBadContext
  Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  6 (X_GLXIsDirect)
  Serial number of failed request:  93197
  Current serial number in output stream:  93196

X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Serial number of failed request:  93192
  Current serial number in output stream:  93197

X Error of failed request:  GLXBadContext
  Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
  Serial number of failed request:  93198
  Current serial number in output stream:  93198

Mathematica has received the signal: SIGSEGV and has exited.
If possible, please report this problem to support@wolfram.com
describing in as much detail as possible what you were doing
when the problem occurred.

Usually I can fix the problem by restarting the notebook between 1-10 times. Eventually, it works and stops crashing.

I'm on OS X with a pretty new computer with lots of memory and a good processor, still MMA crashes all the time when I work with many graphics objects, for example when I want to animate something with ListAnimate. I think it's just to be expected from this version of MMA, hopefully it will get better in the next. –  Pickett Apr 13 at 11:34
