Re: [177.70]KDE 4.1.x heavy artefacts
I have the exact same problem since the last kde4 update from opensuse 11 factory repo. I didn't have this behaviour before this (and I've been running 177.70 for a while now) so I assume this is something related to changes in kde rather than a driver issue? Hard to say..
our symptoms are identical, I noticed the same behaviour with smplayer. Sometimes it does not want to be set to fullscreen, but most of the time the screen flashes in fullscreen and instead of black background I get grey background.
