tabbing causes windows to turn black for a while
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
When tabbing between windows the currently selected windows appears totally
black - both the window contents and the window decoration are black.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a few windows.
2. Press Alt-Tab a few times
3. The window that is currently selected by tabbing turns black.
Windows turns black.
Should be able to see the contents of the window.
This is on a Dell Latitude D810 with an ATI X600 graphics card using the radeon
driver from xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.1-7.fc6 with xorg 7.1-2.
This sounds like a driver bug to me, since if it wasn't we'd have seens tons of
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
I haven't got the laptop in question anymore, but if I recall correctly it
started working sometime before the final fc6 release.
Feel free to close.
