Is anyone else seeing black boxes and distorted bitmap text when using

I last updated this machine in early Jan and everything was fine then.

Yes, I've seen some glitches if a lot of redrawing is happening that's with an Radeon R5 230.

The default acceleration method recently has changed from exa to glamor for this card as the radeonsi driver is now enabled as of 31st January.

Setting AccelMethod to exa restores the old behavior.

I'll recheck if time allows with a newer card (R7 240) which requires glamor as acceleration method.


You will continue to suffer
if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you.
True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic.
If words control you that means everyone else can control you.
Breathe and allow things to pass.
