Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-24 13:33:23 UTC
Does setting the following *before* running startx solve the problem: export XCURSOR_CORE=yes Also, after testing that, unset the above variable and then try using "swcursor" in the config file and restarting. Does this make the problem go away? TIA

I see this as well (Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500]). Also, when running virtual size>displayed size, there were large delays with the sreen scrolling (when the pointer goes past the visible screen boundary). These made the whole X experience quite unpleasant... I've already downgraded back to beta4 X RPMs (besides this bug, the upgrade broke the unsupported but highly missed synaptics touchpad driver, and I need the double-tap for button2 even more than I need to see the pointer all the time). But if I ever have time, I am planning to try the latest X packages from Rawhide with suggestions in comment #1 (and will try to recompile the synaptics driver and see if that helps).

Just a datapoint. I see it too with a Radeon Mobility M6 LY
Comment 4 Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-26 06:42:35 UTC
According to http://email@example.com/msg01051.html, turning on the swcursor option does work. <offtopic> That post also mentions the issue of the machine locking up when the exiting X under KDM - I see it as well (inlcuding with at least beta3, I believe). Anybody else seing it? Is it in Bugzilla yet? </offtopic>

I see this on a Radeon Mobility M7 LW * XFree86-184.108.40.206-20030129.1 both the XCURSOR_CORE=yes and swcursor directive fix the problem for me. The cursor disappears for me at a very specific point: when transitioning to and from the grow-window-right cursor (the one that looks like "->|"). It seems to just take a long time (~1-2sec) to load or unload this particular cursor.
Comment 6 Aleksey Nogin 2003-02-04 02:00:12 UTC
Still there with the stuff from the latest Rawhide (XFree86-220.127.116.11-20030129.4). Works OK with swcursor on.
Comment 7 Florian La Roche 2004-06-11 07:53:33 UTC
Closing this, not happening with rawhide anymore...
