I am noticing the display exposing uninitialized/random frame buffer data during X startup/shutdown/login/logout. I have installed 11.1 on two machines. One machine is an x86 installation with Intel GMA X3100 display hardware. The other is an x86_64 installation with a 9800GT and NVidia’s proprietary drivers installed from the build service repo.
I see garbage on the display(s) briefly during kdm login and logout. The cause is obvious; the frame buffers are being left uninitialized. The buffers should be set to some uniform color. This isn’t a serious problem, it just looks erratic. Anyone else see this?
I would chalk this up to a specific driver implementation and say little or nothing, but I’m seeing it with two unrelated drivers.
I did not observe this with 10.x and I don’t remember it happening in 11.0 (although I spent little time with that release and may be mistaken.)
