Description Chris Kloiber 2006-02-20 23:58:32 UTC
Description of problem: Running xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-6.1 with nv driver on Geforce 6600 (PCI-e) from Test3 trees and have experienced a single horizonal line of corrupted pixels approximately 24 pixels from the top of the screen. You can "erase" the corruption by moving a screen around over that area, but eventually it will come back. There are some activities (can't tell which) where you can watch the corruption occur. indeed this may not really be an X issue, but another application overriting screen memory. There is nothing unusual logged, and no problems running X. It seems most noticible right after login, or if you leave the desktop sitting there a while.

Created attachment 124932 [details] Screenshot actually shows the corruption. This is what the corruption looks like some of the time.

Are you using Xen?
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2006-03-07 01:50:00 UTC
Ah yes, from the log: Current Operating System: Linux borg.ckloiber.com 2.6.15-1.1955_FC5hypervisor #1 SMP Wed Feb 15 16:02:06 EST 2006 x86_64 This problem happens on Radeon hardware using the "radeon" driver as well, and is increasingly looking like a xen kernel bug. It appears as if kernel console messages get displayed to video memory still.
Comment 6 Chris Kloiber 2006-03-07 02:19:38 UTC
I was, yes. And you are right about the radeon driver too. This happens on my x86_64/radeon m10 laptop as well when Xen is installed (right before the laptop preforms an emergency thermal shutdown because there's no acpi/cpu scaling in Xen, but that's another bad bug). Will you be passing this to the kernel team then?
