Just a quick post to let you all know that xf86-video-i810-2.4.2 has hit portage in ~arch.
Here’s my request : please test the hell out of it !! 🙂
It seems to be a good improvement over the original 2.4.0 release as it has less flicker, but it needs some serious testing. I think there are still cases where I can see flickering but the conditions seem to vary over time and I can’t reliably reproduce the issue.
So please test this new release as much as you can and let me know how it works for you. Bugs should be filed in Bugzilla and not in the comments 😉
As for the new 2.5 branch, it should hit ~arch with a big fat package.mask over the next couple of days.
Oh, and now I’m part of the X11 Team as I have to work with X stuff for my job, I might as well contribute some efforts there too.
Update : Please please file bugs if you still see flickering! Bugs won’t solve themselves! Thanks 🙂
