NV11 hardware cursor broken, use swcursor by default instead
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:23 EDT
A user in IRC reported that the hardware cursor on Nvidia GeForce 2 MX
is showing double cursor images, that go away with swcursor.
The chip is:
<Aether> 02:00.0 Class 0300: 10de:0110 (rev b2)
<Aether> Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop-
ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
The cursor code in "nv" driver should be changed to default to swcursor
for all NV11 hardware for future erratum.
Note, he also indicated that 4.2.1-11 continues to have this problem.
This problem is currently only potentially planned for RHL 8.0 and 7.3
erratum. Confirmation of the problem in 4.3.0 would be required before
making the change there though. If anyone can test 4.3.0 with NV11
and confirm/deny here, that'd be appreciated.
I don't have NV11 hardware, so can't really test this. It should
be filed in X.Org if it's still an issue I guess. Someone with
the hardware would have to confirm that, and file it in X.org
bugzilla however, as we've no way to confirm.
If anyone experiences this with Fedora Core 2 or later, please
feel free to file a bug in X.org bugzilla and we'll track it
if you provide the URL. http://bugs.freedesktop.org
