Description of problem:

This is not the same as bug #590216. I have installed that new driver version and my problem still appears.

At startup everything is fine but after a while icons get randomly corrupted. I have also seen image corruptions for the cover images in amarok. If the application does a redraw then the image appears OK again.

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


How reproducible:

Oops, too much copy & paste. That is of course kernel:

Hey Stefan,

Just seen your comment on the recent update.  Is the problem still identical to before?
Comment 5 Stefan Becker 2010-06-29 01:03:19 EDT
Yes, no changes. I had hoped that the problem would be fixed after reading the changelog of the latest driver update...
Comment 6 Stefan Becker 2010-08-09 11:42:10 EDT
The new kernel- with the fix for bug #602956 doesn't help. Icons are still corrupted :-/
Comment 7 Stefan Becker 2010-09-30 14:51:45 EDT
Just preupgraded the machine to F14Beta and still have the same issue.

Comment 8 Ben Skeggs 2010-10-01 02:08:07 EDT
I'm not sure if it'll help, but the kernel that's building now has an additional fix for a corruption issue I managed to track down finally:

Comment 9 Stefan Becker 2010-10-03 05:19:41 EDT
Sorry for the late reply, but I wanted to check the new kernel a little bit longer. I haven't seen any icon corruptions with for two days, so I assume the issue is fixed.
Comment 10 Ben Skeggs 2010-10-03 18:07:03 EDT
Ah, excellent :)  Thanks for letting me know.  That was a pain to track down, I couldn't reproduce it in normal circumstances at all, had to resort to some tricks.  Glad it's good now though!
Comment 11 Adam Williamson 2010-10-07 15:41:41 EDT
of course, we need kernel team to submit this or a later build as an update to make sure the fix makes F14.
Comment 12 Stefan Becker 2011-05-15 03:08:28 EDT
This has been fixed. Closing.
