Description Mark Watts 2009-03-12 19:17:08 UTC

Attempting to follow:

Initial Compiz test: "Unable to enable desktop effects"

$ glxinfo | grep direct
Direct Rendering: Yes

Running glxgears give me the following effect:

Stopping glxgears and then re-trying the Compiz test now works (!)
Cube rotation and wobbly windows work smoothly.
glxgears pauses while cube rotation (via mouse) is in effect.

Hey Mark, is this the same as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=490366 ?

Comment 4 Mark Watts 2009-04-16 09:09:30 UTC
I get the same horizontal banding, but not the vertical lines.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Hey. Just to confirm this is still present in Fedora 12, I opened an upstream bug:

Comment 9 Diego Escalante Urrelo 2009-11-23 15:09:15 UTC
Oops, sorry I confused bugs. Can't confirm on F12.

Comment 10 Mark Watts 2009-11-23 15:20:02 UTC
Just to confirm, the issues I reported originally are not present on the same hardware running Fedora 12 release.
