Screenshot of the problem

You can see this bug with the demo version of Civilization 4. When you try to select you civilization, in the place where the image of your character appear there are only garbage like in the screenshot attached. This didn't happen with mesa 7.8.2 so this is a regression.

I'm using Ubuntu Maverick and the Xorg-edgers PPA:

Mesa DRI Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT x86/MMX/SSE2

OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.9-devel

You can get the demo from here: http://www.gamershell.com/download_11624.shtml

Any additional information I can apport. Maybe some logs or the output of an specific debug channel? Is still a problem with today mesa git and intel from git.

Crash log

With todays git from xorg-edgers I'm getting a crash just before the broken animation is shown. I'm attaching the complete crash backtrace.
Comment 4 Eric Anholt 2010-10-14 15:53:40 UTC
That should have been fixed by:

Screenshot of the issue

mesa 7.10.0+git20101017.98b3f274-0ubuntu0sarvatt and 
Intel driver 2:2.12.902+git20101017.33133a1d-0ubuntu0sarvatt

the problem is even worst, now there's only white and black textures everywhere. I'm attaching some screenshots.

The crash is not happening anymore, but now i don't have any kind of textures.
Comment 7 Jaime Rave 2010-12-20 20:21:28 UTC
The game looks correct when stating Ubuntu in low graphics mode and using swarst but is really slow.
Comment 8 Eric Anholt 2010-12-25 08:29:45 UTC
Please retest with Mesa as of:

commit 5dc53444c8323c1787dddbe6b67048828df9c684

    i965: Correct the dp_read message descriptor setup on g4x.
    It's mostly like gen4 message descriptor setup, except that the sizes
    of type/control changed to be like gen5.  Fixes 21 piglit cases on
    gm45, including the regressions in bug #32311 from increased VS
    constant buffer usage.
Comment 9 Eric Anholt 2011-01-07 13:19:19 UTC
Confirmed, still an issue as of Mesa master at ff0f0875135a7842e78fae002ee1187892f9405b

    vp-constant-negate: New test for bug #30156 in Civ4 on i965.

commit 1d1ad6306d0d55b6ba97d9ecc730d5f919d55df5
Author: Eric Anholt <eric@anholt.net>

    i965: Avoid double-negation of immediate values in the VS.
    In general, we have to negate in immediate values we pass in because
    the src1 negate field in the register description is in the bits3 slot
    that the 32-bit value is loaded into, so it's ignored by the hardware.
    However, the src0 negate field is in bits1, so after we'd negated the
    immediate value loaded in, it would also get negated through the
    register description.  This broke this VP instruction in the position
    calculation in civ4:
    MAD TEMP[1], TEMP[1], CONST[256].zzzz, CONST[256].-y-y-y-y;
