Hi, I'm using the latest git of the Xorg Ati/Radeon Drivers with an Ati Mobility
Radeon 9700 (RV350) running on Xorg 7.1.1 with Mesa 6.5.1 (ubuntu cvs revision)
and libdrm/drm kernel modules 2.3.
Many things work fine, some not (but I'll place other bugs for these :)) btw
only using this git version (no problems with stable 6.6.2 and 6.6.3 versions),
if I put in the Device section of my Xorg.conf file the option
Option "DynamicClocks" "on"
I get many screen gtlitches... I can't take screenshots or photos, btw there are
some screen lines, and I can't read nothing... The Xorg log dosn't report
anything of strage related to it (simply it says that I've enabled Dynamic clocks).
Anyway in this bug report (the first I make for this driver) I want thank all
the devs working on it becouse you made really great work... Actually Xorg
radeon driver + AiGLX + Beryl works better than Xgl + fglrx + Beryl!!!
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
I've found that I get this also if I run a secondary X server using the "DynamicClocks" options to "on", and now glitches applies to all X servers running (also those ran before applying this setting).
To fix this, I should run another server with that option to "off"...
I had made some photos to show better the bug, but I've only a cell phone here and the result is really poor, so if anyone has this problem, please integrate this bug!

My Kubuntu kdm screen bugged when using DynamicClocks
Finally I've made some photos to the bugged screen I get using the DynamicClock option, as I said only using an xf86-video-ati driver after version 6.6.3 I get this issue...

Xorg log file with DynamicClocks enabled (runninng on second Display)
Here you are my Xorg.log file using Dynamic Clocks, DRI is disabled there, since I've ran another Xorg in DISPLAY :2 and doing this (as said on previous comments) also my main screen got these glitches... Then I reloaded this second screen disabling DynamicClocks and all my X servers worked well again...

Xorg.conf - with DynamicClocks enabled
Does it also happen if you comment out all other driver options? If yes, what if you add Option "ColorTiling" "off"?

Tried... I get always the same thing.
Can you try isolating the change that caused it with git-bisect?

Well, I could try but I've no time for next 15 days and more since I'll go in holidays, I'll let you know something later if I can.
if this happens with a bare xorg.conf I'd be interested you are turning a lot of options that we don't have on by default for good reason.

My xorg.conf is attached above, you can see if there's something wrong with it...
punting from 6.7, unless the reporter can bisect this down, I can't reproduce it at this stage.
Please try again with 6.7.191.
