Description chris 2011-06-30 19:25:29 UTC
Using Gnome 3, Arch Linux (current), with these opensource drivers(latest from Arch Linux repos) I have issues when recovering from sleep sometimes. The screen will begin to display some fonts with several fonts clipped which can only be solved with a restart. For instance E's are cut off in half.

The attached image shows various examples of this annotated and highlighted to show the issue.

What chip are you using?  Please attach your xorg log and dmesg output.  Also when you say sleep, do you mean suspend or dpms?

And by sleep I just mean that I am using Gnome3 and either shutting the lid or clicking suspend in the corner. I'm not sure if what it says it's doing is what you mean though.

Does running an app the uses Xv fix the issue?

I'm not sure what that is?

Xv = Xvideo extension.  Try playing a video in totem (gnome movie player).
Comment 7 chris 2011-07-06 06:23:08 UTC
I needed the problem to reoccur to test this and it did. I tried to play videos with Totem and it couldn't play video but then I tried Mplayer and it fixed some of the fonts but not all of them. I'm not sure if its not just because they weren't reloaded but its a little better.

Sounds like some missing state init in the 3D driver.
Comment 9 chris 2011-07-06 07:11:13 UTC
Like an issue in the code or the config?

3D driver code.
