Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 650718
It seems that there is a serious issue with cairo 1.10.0-2.fc14 and nvidia drivers
Last modified: 2010-11-11 03:02:57 EST
Description of problem:
After clean install of fedora 14 i installed the nvidia drivers from RPM Fusion running "yum install akmod-nvidia". Everything went fine except some minor glitches during the boot process.
The problem was that after some time the gnome desktop was unusable. The whole desktop was sluggish. The windows painting was slow . After some googling i found this topic
suggesting to downgrade the cairo , cairomm to version 1.8. This worked. It seems that the cairo 1.10 that ships with fedora 14 somehow does not work well with the recent nvidia drivers.
