Description Mathieu Malaterre 2016-04-13 07:30:12 UTC
Some text elements look strange and some windows leave garbage behind them when closed.

System is:

Comment 2 Connor Behan 2016-04-18 16:53:36 UTC
I'm fairly sure this has to do with compositing which would make it a duplicate of bug 88767. The suggestions there (particularly "ExaNoComposite" "true" in the "Device" section) might help.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 88767 ***
Comment 3 Mathieu Malaterre 2016-04-21 05:54:59 UTC
Apparently this did help a bit:

Thanks, it ("ExaNoComposite" "true") helped, partly: the window
heading is now ok, the garbage is still there.

Comment 4 Connor Behan 2016-04-21 17:00:10 UTC
So disabling the XComposite extension doesn't help. And the only way to make this go away is giving up on acceleration altogether?
Comment 5 Ben Crocker 2018-01-30 00:06:12 UTC
Please see comment 18 to bug 88767; can you try this with a more
recent X server and kernel?

Please note also that the R128 hardware is very old; if you can
reproduce the probme with newer hardware, could you open a new bug?
