Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212514
aiGLX extension has PowerPC endian bug (screen blue/purple when enabled)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
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.
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).
Just confirming that it occurs on my PowerBook G4 15", too. Eagerly awaiting
the patch :-)
Thank you for the bug report. This particular bug has already been reported
into our bug tracking system, but please feel free to report any further
bugs you find.
