screenshot with artifacts

Description of problem:
I have Lenovo T60 notebook with external LCD attached. When I boot the Radeon test day live cd, enable desktop effects (inc. wobbly windows) and play a video in totem, the video is slow and choppy (I think not every frame is drawn) and when I move the window, I get artefacts - it seems to me like the old window is not being erased. See attached picture.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the live cd and log in
2. enable desktop effects, including wobbly windows
3. start totem and play a video
4. move the totem window
Actual results:
artefacts, choppy video playback

Expected results:
nice and smooth video without artefacts

Additional info:

It might be related to the dualhead configuration. I am running the test in mirror mode, both screens show the same output - just as it boots.

xrandr output:

same problem with same card, but without multihead.

It works in fullscreen or with effects disabled.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

I am using the livecd, so there is no xorg.conf.

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

Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 18:24:44 UTC
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.

[This is a bulk message for all open Fedora Rawhide Xorg-related bugs. I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
