xorg configuration

Commit 23d1df22d177e54bfc46304053d8115047ff85d4 on xf86-video-intel broke my G965 (8086:29a2). Text gets messed up, but some graphic stuff looks OK at first. For example, Ubuntu's GDM looks fine until you type in your credentials.

Acceleration is EXA.

Bug #15616's screenshot is precisely the same kind of corruption I see.
Comment 4 Eric Anholt 2008-04-22 18:38:03 UTC
Works on my GM965 system, including gdm.  I'll need to try on more systems probably.
Comment 5 Rajesh Balan 2008-04-27 05:53:28 UTC
Thanks to Gordon for pointing me to this bug report.

I have the same problem as well. my setup is an Asus P5E-VM-HDMI board (G35 chipset) connected via HDMI to my plasma tv. 

on my setup, even the KDE startup screen is garbled (a weird garbled line appears just below the icons on the startup screen).

I have this same problem on my G35 chip (Asus P5E-VM HDMI).

My output is via an SDVO card (DVI)

Garbled screen in git master

Been having this problem for a couple of weeks in git master happens on Fedora 8 and 9.

AccelMethod changes nothing
Comment 9 Hong Liu 2008-05-03 20:08:08 UTC
Would you please try the latest git tip of xorg xserver?
We've reproduced this bug, but upgrade the Xorg xserver to the latest seems fixed the problem.

Comment 10 Gordon Jin 2008-05-06 18:51:20 UTC
To all the reporters, could you confirm with xserver git tip?
Comment 11 Kevin DeKorte 2008-05-06 19:26:10 UTC
Sorry, but I'm no longer running this equipment. To many failures with the G35 chipset, so I removed the SDVO card and installed an ATI 3650 card.
Comment 12 Tristan Willy 2008-05-06 19:57:15 UTC
You'll have to give me some time as I need my machine to be stable right now. If someone else can test xserver git master sooner, go for it.
Comment 13 Tomas Carnecky 2008-05-06 22:31:23 UTC
I used to test only the video driver from git, everything else is installed through gentoo ebuilds. Right now I'm using one of the stable releases of the driver. I'll give it a shot later this week, but I will need take a look at the wiki how to compile xorg from git as something didn't go right when I tried last time.
Comment 14 Wang Zhenyu 2008-05-07 22:15:13 UTC
Fixed in master now.
Comment 15 Tristan Willy 2008-05-15 21:35:32 UTC
I gave master a spin and can confirm. This bug is fixed. Thanks.
