Description David Bentley 2006-01-20 16:06:11 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20060103 Fedora/1.5-4 Firefox/1.5 Description of problem: Right clicking on the gnome desktop pops up a menu box which remains when you let go of the button also right clicking allows you to draw/drag varying size boxes all over the screen. Another thing that I have noticed is after loging in the splash screen disappears before the icons get drawn over it. I have filed it against the driver as the vesa driver does not show this problem. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-drv-nv-22.214.171.124-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See description Actual Results: See description Expected Results: pop up boxes to dissapear when right button released and rectangles to disapear when left button is released. Additional info: Actual video card model Aopen GeForce 2 Pro model number VGA PA256 Deluxe II 32MB AGP CARD. NB this card worked fine under FC4 with the previous version of xorg.

Tested with a fresh install of FC5T2 fully updated on 20/1/06

I have just done some more testing and found that this problem does not exist in the Thousands of colors mode so I will use that mode until the problem is fixed in the Millions of colours mode. Another thing that I have noticed is that the video does not work in real player on this machine with this video card (AMD Athalon 1200 on a Gigabyte GA7ZXR) I have another machine testing FC5/Rawhide and its video in real player works just fine but this has a different setup (Radeon 9800 Pro video on an Intel SE7505 server board with dual xeon's)

altered to FC5T2 instead of devel.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2006-01-24 18:06:39 EST
Sounds like an acceleration related bug. Try the original configuration you used, but use Option "noaccel" to disable acceleration temporarily to see if the problem goes away. Next test, is to comment out the noaccel option added above, and to try: Option "XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy" There are a number of other XaaNo options available which are documented in the xorg.conf manpage that you can try individually or together to attempt to narrow the problem down some more as well. Please update the report to indicate which if any of the above works around the problem for you. Thanks in advance.

I raised this problem again in 179298 because for some reason I lost visibility of this one in mybugs. I flag 179298 as a duplicate and update this one later tonight after todays updates have been installed.

*** Bug 179298 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 9 David Bentley 2006-01-31 17:54:40 EST
Both options in comment #4 cure the problem. I also tried the one mentioned in your reply to bug 179298 comment #2 Option "XaaNoPixmapCache" but this had no effect. Presumably Option "XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy" is prefered to Option "NoAccel" As this leaves other acceleration in effect.
Comment 10 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-03 07:15:09 EST
These might be additional duplicates of the same issue: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=173625 https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5134 New X server build, and nv driver build are available which might possibly resolve the issue also. Please try them and let me know if there's any change: xorg-x11-server-1.0.1-1 xorg-x11-drv-nv-126.96.36.199-1
Comment 11 David Bentley 2006-02-05 06:38:07 EST
I can confirm that all is now OK when using the new driver. The issue reported is nolonger apparent.
Comment 12 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-05 10:22:47 EST
Cool, thanks for the update. Setting status to "RAWHIDE"
