Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182586
Xair and ATI xserver cause video display issues (really dirty like zebra)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
Using the Xair server and the ATI driver causes "send-notify" to use the
non-existent LSD theme. The "round corners" of windows are not clipped
properly. If I use a resolution greater than 1024x768 many textures become all
white. (screenshots attached)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Dell D600 laptop.
FC5test3 with Xair xorg-x11-server-Xair-126.96.36.199.20060207-5.i386.rpm.
VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R250 Lf [FireGL 9000]
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Xair from http://people.redhat.com/rstrode/aiglx/i386/
2. Start X in 1024x768 (see send-notify get corrupt, and edges weirdness)
3. Start X in > 1024x758 (see big white dirty zebra, and send-notify get corrupt)
1) send-notify is tie-dye
2) background/gnome-panel is blank/white
1) send-notify should stop using LSD
2) I'm in Texas, there is no snow here

send-notify is corrupt, and window borders "round edges" are not correct.
Xair is not part of Fedora Core. I don't know if there is a bugzilla
product/component for Xair yet, so reassigning bug to primary Xair
We're working on getting the round corners done, but the notify bubble
corruption is new. Will look into that.

Technologies Inc Radeon R250 Lf [FireGL 9000] (rev 02) (Dell Lat. D600), Xair is
running and gnome-terminal, for example, displays perfectly, but the gnome
panels and background are white with pretty shadows (see dirty zebra in snow
I've watched pretty thoroughly for errors from Xair, and I've turned backing
store and "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" on and off. With "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" off
the system hard hangs as soon as I turn on compositing in metacity.
Closing this bug, these issues have been fixed in the rawhide builds of the
AIGLX stack. See also this page:
