Description Peter Gordon 2007-11-09 16:03:40 EST
Description of problem:
After enabling EXA via the AccelMethod xorg.conf option, Nautilus uses random
colors for its backgrounds, even for the desktop background (if I set an empty
wallpaper and choose "Solid Color"). 

However, if I choose to use a gradient, and both the "start" and "end" colors
are the same, this does not occur. (It then properly uses that color.)

This leads me to believe, at first glance, that it's something to do with how
EXA accelerates the solid-fill stuff. 

I'm quite certain that it is nothing else which might cause this, as merely
toggling EXA (via the AccelMethod option in my xorg.conf) then restarting X (via
a reboot or init 3 then init 5) creates this error with nothing else
intentionally modified or changed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 8, using the "intel" video driver.
2. Change the AccelMethod option in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to "exa" instead of the
default "xaa."
3. Restart X somehow.
Actual results:
The random colors seen in the screenshot.

Expected results:
It should be using the proper colors set in my preferences.

Additional info:

My hardware is the built-in G965 graphics on a DG965WH desktop motherboard,
using an E6600 processor (x86_64).

I believe that this problem is the same as

The difference being that I was using the greedy Heuristic.  

If not it would then be related to.


I definitely ran acrossed the bug in my testing and now have it resolved on my

Yup, that's the same. Thanks, Jon! :]
