I kept myself out on the edge of insanity today by upgrading my
slackware-current system to latest packages (glibc 2.2, binutils
126.96.36.199, gcc 2.95.2, etc.) I also upgraded the kernel to
2.4.0-test11. Then, I cvsupped and recompiled DRI.
The problem I have is that the X display blinks totally black every few
seconds. This is immediately obvious when using the system: it starts
right away when X is started. The problem occurs both with and without
direct rendering, with and without DGA, and also with XFree86 4.0.1
The second problem is that X is probing my RAMDAC incorrectly. It shows a
max pixel clock of 300 MHz, when in fact it is capable of 360 MHz.
XFree86 4.0.1 probes this value correctly.
My hardware is MGA G400 MAX 32MB on a Via KX133 machine. I anyone else
seeing these problems? Everything was working fine after the glibc/gcc
upgrade, but then after the kernel upgrade/reboot everything went to hell.
