Description John Hodrien 2015-09-17 08:11:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Rendering artefacts visible in a number of applications, including firefox, when used with nvidia drivers due to a bug in clutter.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
On every machine with nvidia graphics I've tested

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start firefox
2.  Open a complex web page
3.  Move the mouse around

Actual results:
Tearing and visual artefacts

Expected results:
Normal rendering

Additional info:

This has already been reported against Fedora, and was fixed in later versions of clutter.  Bugzilla #1081625 references the simple patch that fixes the issue.


This patch has been tested as applied the EL7 SRPM and is confirmed as working.  The fault is definitely with clutter and not with nvidia.

Comment 4 Owen Taylor 2017-01-10 14:16:58 EST
