How totally broken fullscreen OpenGL applications look (111.00 KB, image/jpeg)

Description Öyvind Saether 2011-01-28 15:31:19 UTC
On affected system:

1. Load fullscreen OpenGL something which thinks fullscreen means both attached monitors. This includes kwin and warzone.

2. Kernels 2.6.37-git15 2.6.38-rc1-git2 2.6.38-rc2-git7 show expected on first monitor and complete blur on second monitor. Total messy blur. Everything works perfectly with stable 2.6.37-gentoo kernel. I do not know what happened with <=2.6.37-git15, but I do know 2.6.37-git15 kernels and later are defective.

It would be nice if someone could make two monitors work with OpenGL again (working kwin is nice).
Comment 1 Alex Deucher 2011-01-28 15:34:53 UTC
did you update anything other than the kernel (mesa, ddx, etc.)?  If it's just the kernel can you bisect?
Comment 2 Öyvind Saether 2011-01-29 05:28:56 UTC
I update git x11-libs/libdrm, x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati and media-libs/mesa frequently.

I do not know if new kernels work with older version of libdrm/video-ati/mesa, I had a recient version of those when I noticed, update to later and still no second screen so I tried an old kernel and it worken, then I tried all the newer ones mentioned.

kwin and other fullscreen opengl applications still show a total blurry mess on the second monitor as of kernel 2.6.38-rc5-git4.

Completely broken and useless.
Comment 4 Öyvind Saether 2011-02-27 12:28:05 UTC
kwin started OK with both my screens usable today.

kernel 2.6.38-rc6-git5.
git ati/mesa from this weekend, maby yesterday.

closing bug as fixed.
