Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 221712
White screen issues with compiz/beryl and mesa 6.5.2
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
As the freedesktop.org bug report (see quoted url) gives a good description I'll
copy/paste part of it here:
"With these updates, (compiz and) beryl redraws parts of the screen as white
parts. Some, bu not all, shadows appear as white borders and some parts of the
screen are covered in white squares."
Running beryl-xgl (which is statically linked with libGL) works as expected.
Replacing /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 and the active dri file (from
mesa-libGL-6.5.2-4.fc7) with the copies from mesa-libGL-6.5.1-8.fc6.i386.rpm
makes compiz and beryl work as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, just start compiz or beryl with the mentioned mesa libGL version.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update system to latest mesa-libGL
2. start compositing manager (compiz or beryl)
White where no white should be
A useable desktop displaying more than just white squares, white borders, a
white background, etc...
Using the radeon driver (/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so
(xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.3-1.fc7) and /usr/lib/dri/radeon_dri.so (see description))

I'm not totally sure, but I think this bug should be marked a dupe of #219307.
Agree, it seems like I missed this report when I filed my bug.
