as a followup of my post from 3.6.2008
investigated further the problem of bad rendering with 855GM graphics
card when certain application are launched (etc. Iceape, Firefox). It
worked well with xserver-xorg-video-intel 2.1.0-2, but not with later
driver version, including the latest git version.
The problem seems to be in the EXA acceleration method which became the
default one in 2.1.0 version. The problem disappears when introducing
Option "AccelMethod" "XAA"
The EXA acceleration method is supposed to be better & simpler, but
apparently has some troubles when used with the older video cards. Maybe
this info is of some use for someone else, eventually could someone
improve the EXA method so that it works properly also with i855GM ?
