@PRafael
it's possible that you are onto something here:
after the upgrade to mesa10 (even with the xorg.conf) i'm unable to use bespin; the screen corruption comes back as bad as before and kern.log is spammed with errors.

looking closer (after your post) it seems that belgiumsolydk is also using air-oxygen.

Or, perhaps not. I've had screen corruption problems since the update, combined with Firfox instability issues. Most of the problems appear to have been solved by uninstalling firefox-solydkxk-adjustments (which removed adblock plus) and adding the firefox extension adblock edge. The screen corruption appears to be gone, but firefox is still not as stable as it was before the update (although it is better).

And I do not have air-oxygen installed.

@zerozero and Dr G

I can't confirm the problem with firefox (or thunderbird) because I don't use it or have it installed, but the graphical/screen issue appear after the update and now is gone.

the mesa10 issues with kwin are reported in this bug >> https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=746557
it's an upstream problem (also reported) and there's a patch in mesa.git
atm the version in sid is still not patched but we will keep an eye on the bug.

I got these updates through:

Code: Select all

The following packages have been kept back:
  libegl1-mesa libegl1-mesa:i386 libegl1-mesa-drivers libegl1-mesa-drivers:i386 libgbm1 libgbm1:i386 libgl1-mesa-dev libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx
  libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libglapi-mesa libglapi-mesa:i386 libruby1.9.1 mesa-common-dev
The following packages will be upgraded:
  ddm debian-plymouth-manager firefox firefox-l10n-en-gb libopenvg1-mesa libopenvg1-mesa:i386 lightdm-manager sambashare solydx-grub2-theme solydx-system-adjustments solydxk-flashplugin-11
  solydxk-softwaremanager solydxk-sws thunderbird thunderbird-l10n-en-gb updatemanager usermanager
Is this to do with the graphical fixes? Why is there no announcement of these updates?

in this topic >> http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphp ... pic&t=2772 there's a couple proposed fixes for this problem

i'm testing the second one
4) So whatever happens at kdm/kde init/login phase, it corrupts the video's OpenGL2.0 compositing regime "permanently", until the next reboot.

Now, there is an effect called "Login - smoothly fade to the desktop when logging in".
I disabled (unchecked) it - and voila!
All works, and I can now use "OpenGL2.0 compositing" permanently, with no issues whatsoever (as soon as this effect is disabled - if I enable it again, after the first login I face the issues described above).

To summarize, with the effect "Login - smoothly fade to the desktop when logging in" disabled - "OpenGL2.0 compositing" works fine, enabled on startup etc as before.
so far looks a good fix

I disabled this ""Login - smoothly fade to the desktop when logging in" but it didn't change anything for me.
Same problems.

I have chosen oxygen instead of air-oxygen
I have made the xorg.conf file for the SNA accelaration
I have disabled the "smoothly fade..."
I have upgraded to Mesa 10.1 as proposed by zerozero.

The status is that the situation is worse then before my upgrade to 10.1.

So what of the unannounced updates? I took a look and the upgrade is to the supposedly working mesa 10.1, yet there is no mention of this upgrade anywhere. Is it confirmed to fix the issues mentioned in this thread?

I am not following the testing repositories any more.
I changed back to production after the upgrade to mesa 10.1 through testing.
In production there is no update for mesa according to me.
I just wished I could turn back mesa 10.1 to 9.22 and have a fully production machine again.

I'm assuming my sources.list is the default one except for the addition of the spotify repo?:

Code: Select all

# Spotify

seems ok to me.
Probably I didn't get the updates because I already have the mesa 10.1.

@belgiumsolydk

txs for your replay. I can't help you anyfurther because I don't have the skils to do it. Perhaps a forum moderator can help you more. ah..one last thing... I'm using OpenGL2.0 in my settings instead of OpenGL3.1.

About downgrading mesa... you can downgrade mesa using the synaptic package manager using this how to -https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto

I hope that soon you will have a functional and productive SolidK system.

using Xrender instead of OpenGL 2 as compositing type solves my graphical issues.
Will use my system this way until an update of mase fixes the real problem.

First the output:
Graphics: Card: Intel Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller bus-ID: 00:02.0 chip-ID: 8086:0152
X.Org: 1.15.0 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1920x1080@60.0hz
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Ivybridge Desktop GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.1.0 Direct Rendering: Yes

As mentioned before, the problems are:
1) white box (appearing in strange points, repeated in the screen, or other)
2) white stripes (same as point 1, in particular white horizontal lines of 1px height and with 1px h-space) - in particular in many glows of borders
3) the system freezes when switching virtual desktops
4) .... from time to time, the same page into firefox decide to make the text white - this is really frustrating!
5) not even bad, when working with many images in gimp (which is also affected with the problem of white white stripes in particular in radio buttons) the system freezes forever (or if you prefer it dies - and if it not breathe for 15 minutes, I think it's gone....).

disabling effects don't resolve anything
so I tried different live usb systems:

Systems that don't work:
the mine (after updating)
solydk64_201405 (after loading, the pointer of the mouse become a white-stripes box, and other problems)

System that works without problems:
solydk64_201311
solydx32_201311
solydk32_201405
solydx64_201401
solydx64_201405

In addition, these boots only in safe mode:
debian-live-7.4-amd64-gnome-desktop
debian-live-7.4-amd64-kde-desktop

... so I guess, is not the kernel and is not kde itself (the 32 bit works pretty well, uhm). It may be kde in 64 bit flavor or mesa/intel GMA driver in 64 bit version?

--- updated
disabling openGL render (enabling xrender and rebooting) the problem is resolved, so it's Mesa in 64 bit?
