Demo Code - directly from the GtkGlExt examples

I'm working on a little OpenGL app, which doesn't permanently redraw at a fixed framerate (only when animations are running or expose events are triggered).

It works really nicely as long as there's no compositor around. I tested two compositors (metacity's current ony and xcompmgr). As I tested different composite managers, I think the bug is in the driver.

I'll attach sourcecode for a simple demo application (using GtkGLExt - debian package libgtkglext1-dev) which works fine in the non-composited environment but in a composited environment, when I move the window from one workspace to the other, the application doesn't redraw (I'm seeing random-memory artifacts in the window).

I'll attach demo source code.

The driver version is a bit old.
Shuang, can you reproduce with the attached program with the latest driver?
Comment 2 Eric Anholt 2008-09-23 17:16:43 UTC
You need DRI2 for OpenGL and compositing to work.  It's currently in branches, and should be available and stable in our Q4 release.

Fixed with DRI2.
Comment 4 Sven Herzberg 2008-12-22 06:28:33 UTC
Thanks a lot for fixing this, Eric.

Mass version move, cvs -> git
