Description jens.koerber 2000-01-22 16:41:21 UTC
workaround is to disable SetupForScanlineScreenToScreenColorExpand in
xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/vga256/drivers/r128/r128_accel.c

     a->ScratchBufferBase               = info->scratch_buffer;
     a->PingPongBuffers                 = 1;

+#if 0
     a->SetupForScanlineScreenToScreenColorExpand =
 	R128SetupForScanlineScreenToScreenColorExpand;
     a->SubsequentScanlineScreenToScreenColorExpand =
 	R128SubsequentScanlineScreenToScreenColorExpand;
+#endif
 				/* Pixmap Cache */
                                 /* x11perf -copypixpix100

do you have more information on why this fix is correct and why the bug was
introduced?  Where did you get this fix information from?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-02-10 20:28:59 UTC
official fix from XFree included instead (XFree86-3.3.6-12 and later).
