Description Jacek Poplawski 2009-10-06 16:46:40 UTC
I use Arch Linux with packages:

mesa 7.5.1-2
ati-dri 7.5.1-2
xf86-video-ati 6.12.4-1
libgl 7.5.1-2
blender 2.49a-1

and all menus in Blender are broken. Text in UI is visible, but when I enable menu with mouse or with a hotkey I see just white and black rectangles.

This is probably well known issue because I found similar bugs from 2006.

PS. I can't find any info how to disable hardware rendering now, both LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT and LIBGL_SOFTWARE_RENDERING doesn't change it.

Please try mesa 7.6 or git master.  For software rendering, you want:

I have the same problem on Gentoo x64.

Kernel 2.6.30-gentoo-r5
x11-base/xorg-server-  USE="hal nptl sdl xorg -debug -dmx -ipv6 -kdrive -minimal -tslib"
Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV530 [Radeon X1600] (Secondary)

Upgrading from mesa-7.4.4 to mesa-7.5.1 or mesa-7.5.2 breaks blender menus. 7.4.4 works fine.

I have tried blender-2.48a-r3, blender-2.49a, blender-2.49b.

Seems to be fixed in mesa 7.7
