Description of problem:
When a GL application runs (for example xscreensaver hacks 'stairs' or
'bubbles') the image flickers, as if double buffering is not being used.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Screensaver from Gnome preferences and preview 'stairs'.

Actual Results:  The 'stairs' hack runs, but the image flickers visibly.

Expected Results:  Image should be smooth and solid.

Additional info:

See attached xorg.conf and log file.

This is more of a technical support issue that should be discussed
on the Mesa and/or DRI development mailing lists than a bug.  Once
you have discussed the problem on Mesa/DRI development mailing lists,
if the developers consider it a bug, please file a bug report in
the "xorg" bug tracker or Mesa bug trackers appropriately.  When
you've filed your bug report in the upstream bug tracker, paste
the URL here and we will track the issue.

I believe you will find however that this is a configuration issue
rather than a bug.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2005-02-11 14:55:38 EST
Setting status to "NEEDINFO" pending status update of dri/mesa
mailing list discussion, and upstream bug report URL if determined
to be a legitimate bug by upstream developers.
Comment 6 G. Vincent Castellano 2005-02-11 15:22:22 EST
I've since found out that this problem exists in drivers for 'other'
operating systems, so I no longer believe it is worth pursuing. 
Please set bug status appropriately.
