  • Help. fglrx flickering lines/screen corruption

    I am running CentOS 6 with a 780M integrated graphics using fglrx 11.7 or 11.8 with an e-machines e182HL monitor on VGA. with both drivers, after install fglrx the login screen and the gnome desktop after logging in is afflicted with horrible black flickering lines running up and down the screen. Turning on tear-free desktop fixes the problem... but it messes up full screen flash playback.

    Any ideas?

      My guess is that nobody has heard of or seen this problem before so it's not obvious what we should ask you to do.

      It seems really odd that enabling tear-free desktop would help with flickering lines on the screen unless what you are describing is tearing when there is lots of screen activity. Do you see the flickering lines even when nothing is going on or only under certain conditions, and if so what are those conditions ?

      Edit - wait a minute, you're not seeker010

        I think I changed some IGP power saving options in the BIOS from enabled to "auto", and then increased the UMA from 128MiB to 256MiB, and now the problem is gone... not sure what to make of it. Guess I'll just count my good graces for now, although I did notice when I turned off sideport the problem persists even with tear free turned to on.
