Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 624581
Row of White Boxes when using Mutter and Radeon Driver
Last modified: 2011-06-28 10:33:19 EDT
Description of problem:
There are rows of white boxes that appear along the top of some applications. Which application they appear on is inconsistent; one time it might be Empathy, another it might be along the top of mutter, but they stay in place for the lifespan of that application.
I am not sure if this is an issue with the radeon driver or the mutter window manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It happens pretty consistently. Usually 1-2 applications will exhibit this behaviour.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the radeon driver
2. Use mutter
3. Login and open some applications
Some applications may open with a row of white boxes along the top.
A screenshot showing the boxes along the top of mutter is attached.

You have filed this against the xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd package, but write "Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use the radeon driver".
Only one of the two can be correct.
xorg-x11-drv-ati contains the "radeon" driver which is used by default
xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd contains the "radeonhd" driver
The "radeonhd" driver is only ever used when you have explicitly enabled it by creating a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
Please check what driver you are really running, and if you are running "radeonhd" after all, please try the default "radeon" as well. "radeonhd" is being phased out, so I want to check there are no regressions by moving to "radeon".
Also, attaching /var/log/Xorg.0.log is helpful with most Xorg driver bugs as these logs can show a lot of important information on the system which suffers from the bug. Xorg.0.log also contains information on the driver used, BTW.

I selected the wrong package; I meant xorg-x11-drv-ati.
I didn't find anything noteworthy in the log, but perhaps I overlooked something; it's attached to the bug report now.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
