    Artifacts with Catalyst 9.4 x86_64

    Hi,

    I upgraded to 9.4 with architecture x86_64 just yesterday. I noticed some artifacts with XFCE 4.6 and Firefox 3.0.8. When I click "Log Out" and the small window appears with the choices to restart, shut-down on the screen I have some small horizontal short black lines spreaded on the screen. Inside firefox I get some portion of the page with black background that disappears if I scroll the page up and down.

    Have you noticed such artifacts?

    Great. Barking up the wrong tree then.

    I have HD3200 (Gigabyte 780g motherboard).

    Everything seems to work fine other than these random horizontal lines.

    In the "Device" section (section where you have Driver "fglrx") of /etc/X11/xorg.conf, add this:

    Option "AccelMethod" "xaa"

    and restart X or reboot.

    There is no change. It's the same for me..

    I don't have access to the hardware right now.. so I can't try out the exa/xaa part. Can someone verify?

    Yes, it occurs only with the x86_64 architecture. I know for sure because I was running a 32 bit environment before and those artifacts weren't occurring.
