Description Matt Whitlock 2017-02-02 01:19:06 UTC
Two reports of this so far on Gentoo when using Mesa 17.0.0 RC2.

See a screenshot here:

I am reporting this bug upstream (i.e., here) at the request of Gentoo dev Matt Turner.

Here is the Gentoo bug report:

The problem disappears upon downgrading to Mesa 13.0.3.

Mateusz Lenik, the reporter of the bug on Gentoo's tracker, is using a Polaris 10 card, and I am using a Tobago (Bonaire Pro) card. We are both using the "radeonsi" VDPAU driver.

The problem is already fixed in the master branch. This patch fixes the issue.

Commit: 31908d6a4a3309f4cd4b953d6eecdf41595b1299

   st/vdpau: only send buffers with B8G8R8A8 format to X
   PresentPixmap only works if the pixmap depth matches with the
   window depth, otherwise it returns a BadMatch protocol error.
   Even if the depths match, the result won't look correctly
   if the VDPAU RGB component order doesn't match the X11 one so
   we only allow the X11 format.
   For other buffers we copy them to a buffer which is send to X.

   v2: only send buffers with format VDP_RGBA_FORMAT_B8G8R8A8
   v3: reword commit message
   v4: add comment explaining the code

Applying the patch to 17.0.0 RC2 solves the problem. Thanks.

This report should remain open until the fix lands on the 17.0 branch.
