Description Dmitrij D. Czarkoff 2007-06-08 12:19:55 UTC
I have with radeon module and radeon DRM in kernel. Transparent layers in pictures and text are sometimes rendered with random distortion (often black horizontal lines). The effect is seen everywhere in X (KDE apps, OpenOffice, Firefox and stuff). 7.2, kernel 2.6.21-suspend2-r5 (same happens with gentoo-sources).

fglrx module seems to render everything without distortion.

Hmm...not anything good.  Can you attach your xorg log and configuration file, please?

This bug hasn't been touched in a year and a half.

Dmitrij, if you can still reproduce the issue with a newer versions of xorg-server and/or xf86-video-ati, don't hesitate to reopen this bug. Meanwhile, I'll be closing this bug.

No, the driver is OK for more then a year. I believe my card wasn't quite well supported at the time of initial commit.
