Description Max Duncan 2003-11-15 01:39:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Using the Radeon 7500 driver makes everything appear all blocky. 
Moving a window would make different parts of the fonts/images become
thin then thick in an apparently random pattern.
Changing to use the generic VESA driver resolved that problem. 
However using the VESA driver introduces other problems when I try to
use programs such as Tux Racer and mplayer.

Attach your X server log, config file, and /var/log/messages
as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla
file attachment link below.  Please describe any relevant details
which may be required to reproduce this problem, and the exact
steps necessary.

By following your steps above of "use radeon 7500", "use radeon
7500 driver", I get working video that works properly with no
problems.  So more information is required.

Max Duncan, any better luck with newer XFree86 in FC1 updates, or
XFree86 from rawhide (FC2 test)?
