Description Edward Rudd 2006-10-27 01:14:15 EDT
Description of problem:
with AIGLX extensions enabled, the screen appears bluish purple on powerPC
architectures due to an endianess bug.

This supposedly has been fixed upstream.. and several threads/bug reports exist
on debian and freedesktop.org about the issue.

Comment 1 Andrew Alm 2006-10-27 02:23:29 EDT
This is definately a problem on ppc.  I found a patch to it on the debian bug
report site. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=392453

I tried applying this patch and moving the new libglx.so over to no avail,
hoefully someone with more knowledge on Xorg can get this fixed.

I can confirm rebuilding xorg-X11-server with the debian patch
does fix this issue.

There is a separate issue with some window border corruption after
suspend/resume - but that's a different bug (restarting compiz fixes this).
Comment 3 Adam Thompson 2006-11-14 10:20:17 EST
Just confirming that it occurs on my PowerBook G4 15", too.  Eagerly awaiting
the patch :-)
