Description Jonh Wendell 2007-09-02 07:01:41 UTC
XDamage extension doesn't work with 3D desktops, like compiz.

This blocks, for instance, VNC servers (like GNOME vino) who use this extension.
Comment 1 Daniel Stone 2007-09-02 07:09:15 UTC
this should be fixed with current git mesa/xserver/et al, i believe.

Oh, this is a great news. Do you have any idea when a new tarball (release) will be released?

This seems to still be happening on latest Ubuntu Jaunty Beta with -restricted drivers (tested with nvidia restricted). vnc will show a static image with no refreshes. Monitoring the system will show that actions are actually taking place (or starting another vnc session to grab a new 'snapshot').

Is the fix for that included in server 1.6 that ubuntu uses
Comment 5 Andrew Barbaccia 2009-09-22 06:21:37 UTC
In the newest karmic with xserver 1.7 this is still an issue. Bug 595949  (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=595949) has been opened with slightly more information.
