Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192596
flaky graphics rendering
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
Description of problem:
I am a longtime FC user (and fan). Upgraded to FC5 from FC4 (which ran pretty
much flawlessly) because I wanted a driver for a new printer that I just
couldn't get for FC4.
FC5 is a disappointment on many levels. Mainly, the graphics are flaky, esp. on
web browsing, but also in system modules (esp. KDE)
This could be (a) an HTML engine rendering problem; (b) a KDE problem; (c) an X
server problem; (d) a problem with the driver for my monitor (Samsung SyncMaster
712N) or graphics driver (ProSavage8 VT8375). I am not sure.
Often graphics on a web page will be mucked up with fragments of other elements
on the page or on the desktop. And on KDE system modules or konqueror file
manager, i.e. tabs or other elements, will look screwy, with lines,
crosshatchings or other odd graphic elements obscuring the element. This
behavior is consistent under all desktop themes and templates.
This results also in mozilla, firefox, or seamonkey browsers, as well as in the
konqueror web browser.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Log in to KDE desktop and any browser or system module.
Steps to Reproduce:
Messed-up graphics, as described above.
I reported bug #186763 which happens only on one of my older machines and
which I later decided was due to a hardware problem. Does the image attached to
that bug look like what you're experiencing?
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
