Acceleration artifacts on Radeon
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:20 EST
Unless I turn acceleration off, I get artifacts on-screen when using the Radeon
driver with the attached configuration. The same configuration works fine in FC4.

A screenshot shows the corruption. The text under the nautilus icons is
strangely doubled -- and sometimes manages to get even more shadows than that.
Also, moving windows around leaves artifacts from the window decorations
Interestingly, this only affects the _background_ image -- it never happens on
top of normal windows.
Setting 'Option "noaccel"' fixes the problem, with an obvious cost.
According to bug #178433 which is a duplicate of this one, the way to
go is to set: Option "AccelMethod" "EXA".
