  • As of the latest builds of the oibaf graphics stack, both Chrome and Chromium display flagrant graphical glitches whilst rendering pages; this occurs using the Intel Sandy/Ivy Bridge drivers.

    Any explanation as to why?

      I have the same results with Spotify. Which uses chromium in it's Discovery overview.
      It happens I think 2 days ago.
      Using kernel v3.13 from ubuntu PPA, up-to-date drivers from oibaf, Intel haswell I3-4330.

        It's looking the curaga branch breaks, disabled now and recompiling.
        Refreshed stats-rebased a while ago.

          • kind of stupid question, but I couldn't find an answer via searching the www ...so, can I upgrade my current mesa/ati driver without rebooting my system? (I'm on Ubuntu 13.10 Gnome, if that matters)

              You can update the ddx (x driver) and mesa without rebooting, you just have to stop X and 3D apps for the new versions to take effect. For kernel updates, you pretty much have to reboot.

                  • Eek! I just updated to the latest, and VMWare Player now black-screen glitches out on me shortly after my Windows 7 VM boots. I know the OS is running fine (sound fx, shutdown/startup screens, runs w/o hardware acceleration), I just can't see anything.

                    Anybody know what version was good (i.e. before the Chrome glitches)? And how to explicitly downgrade to that version?

                    • these drivers are amazing! L4D2 is playing ultra smooth and about 3x as fast as catalyst with no mouse lag, vsync works where it did not before and amazingly AA now works which it did not before and the performance hit is nominal

                      however, after about 20 - 40mins of playing i am getting system lock ups. Is there any log i can post on here to help ?
