Could you tell me what the output of xdpyinfo | grep RENDER is ? If there is no
output at all, i.e. no XRender extension then this is likely to be #363301
[mmahut@mmahut ~]$ xdpyinfo | grep RENDER
Not quite the same then as that other issue, though it is clearly something to
do with the cairo canvas. I'd like to know what X driver is in use, seems
missing from the report. What is the output of
grep drivers /var/log/Xorg.0.log
caolanm->jnavrati: Can you see this problem on your RHEL-5 setup ?, maybe the
bit depth of 16 is important to reproduce this.
It would be interesting if someone who can reproduce this could try the proposed
2.3.0 RHEL-5.2 rpms at /mnt/redhat/brewroot/packages/openoffice.org/2.3.0/6.2.el5
to see if that will make any difference
It's occurring on my vmware virtual desktop.
[mmahut@mmahut ~]$ grep drivers /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/vmware_drv.so
I'm downloading these rpms, I will let you know soon.
Nah, hold it. Comment #5 is what I expected to see instead of Comment #3. If,
from the perspective of OOo being run inside vmware there is no RENDER extension
then this is bug 363301.
A workaround is to launch might be to e.g. launch oowriter and toggle off
"tools->options->view->use hardware acceleration"
and then try to repeat the original steps.
