Description of problem:
After finishing an HTTP installation of FC5T2, booted into Gnome to find that the defauly background initially appeared fine and then suddenly corrupted so that it appears to have two sets of everything on the screen, ie panel, logo, bottom panel, several duplicate icons etc. However, only the top menu and the bottom 'minimise everything' are active as if it was normal. Can get the blue script (?)background to render fine, but not the default or the Mac OS alike background. Have not had chance to test other backgrounds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login into Gnome
2.Experience Desktop Background wackiness
Actual Results: Corruption of background
Expected Results: Background should have appeared correctly
I'm running FC5T2 on a Mac mini 1.25Ghz, with 256MB of RAM. Clean install (haven't run any upgrades/updates etc)
Sounds like a driver issue.
Tried it under KDE and default background appears just fine - seems to be limited to Gnome. Could this
just be specific to Gnome? Driver in system-config-display seems to be correct (ATI R280)
Please try adding the following line to the Device section of your
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
It might be related to this Xorg bug:
Added line as suggested and it seems to work - I can now see all the desktop
backgrounds under Gnome, including gradients with no problem.
Thanks for your help
