Description Alex Villacís Lasso 2008-02-19 11:54:47 UTC
Distribution: Fedora Core 8
Kernel version: Linux srv64.palosanto.com #1 SMP Sun Feb 10 17:48:34 EST 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Unknown device d600
        Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 255, IRQ 21

With xf86-video-ati GIT compiled at 1302d1b019c8091986aaf9c86b25c1f36a037788, any attempt to display a video, on any format (YUY2 and YV12), produces an annoying vertical flickering. This occurs after commit that fixed bug #12744. Flickering occurs even when pausing video, and is therefore not related to double buffering. Verified with mplayer, totem, and gstreamer test in GNOME.

Module fglrx was forcibly unloaded before test.

Did this used to work smoothly in the past?

Yes, it did, back when using Fedora Core 7.

While checking whether reversing the patch for bug #12744, I realized this bug is no longer reproducible on my setup. Therefore I close my bug as INVALID.
