Description of problem:
I'm seeing a regression of "corrupted screen/text" on my Thinkpad X200 (only) with compiz enabled.
This appears similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=577142
Started failing with:
Seems to work just fine if I revert mesa packages to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Screen gets messed up every time
Steps to Reproduce:
BTW, glitching continues with:

7.8.1-2 applied 'mesa-7.8.1-intel-dri2-damage.patch'.
Don't see this on the latest packages.
Don't suppose its still needed?
Created attachment 430778 [details]
Updated intel-dri2 patch (shamelessly adapted from 7.8.1-intel-dri2-damage.patch)
This patch appears to "make it work for me" on my ThinkPad X200.
Of course, I don't understand if this is "really right"......
I'm also having this issue on intel 965M laptop.
Also i can see that the Xorg process uses one complete core (100 %) of my dual core laptop. It may probably related since both problems started around the same time.
The patch in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=613118#c3 still seems to be needed in mesa-7.9-0.6.fc14.x86_64.rpm.
Without it, I get screen corruption, glitches, etc.
With the patch, all is fine.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Is that patch going to go into mesa-7.9*.fc14 any time soon? I'm currently running the latest F13 mesa, 7.8.1-8.fc13, in F14 to avoid artifacts in compiz.
Latest mesa update continues regression and does not fix glitches/artifacts:
Changing this back to Rawhide.
Any hope on a fix for this? Compiz is unusable on my system this way....
[I'll try applying the patch described https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=613118#c3 and report if it 'works'.]
I did a local build to 7.9-0.7 adding the patch described in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=613118#c3 and installed.
All appears working.
Is there something preventing this regression from being nailed? Is upstream aware of this?
Is a non-functioning compiz considered a beta blocker by chance? I tried the rawhide (F15) build, since it's a newer git than the F14 version. It has the same glitches/artifacts as the current F14 version. As I mentioned in Comment 7, using mesa-7.8.1-8.fc13 is the only way I've been able to run compiz without rebuilding as Tom London describes.
Maybe related to bug 618679

No, compiz is not part of the standard installation of Fedora and it is kind of a dead-end project anyway ... the next default Gnome window manager will be gnome-shell.

Yes it is; I am marking as dup and submitting a more useful comment there ;)
