Description Billy Biggs 2005-08-24 20:31:08 UTC
Today on IRC I was talking to a gentoo user who had the same broken nautilus
rendering problems that were fixed by bug 4068.  Their X server was still a
4.3.0 version:

name of display:    :0.0
version number:    11.0
vendor string:    Gentoo Linux (XFree86 4.3.0, revision r5)
vendor release number:    40300001
XFree86 version:

Note the vendor string.  I find it interesting to note that xdpyinfo.c from X
only checks for strstr("XFree86").  Why not use that method instead of looking
for the entire string?

        * src/cairo-xlib-surface.c (_cairo_xlib_surface_create_internal):
        Make the vendor string check for XFree86 more liberal, to deal
        with older versions of gentoo that modified it in a different
        way. (#4231, fix from Billy Biggs)
