Re: Random contents displayed upon KDM Startup in 180.22 driver
I had that problem with the 180.xx drivers and openSUSE 11.0/11.1. Graphical artifacts and "ghost" images of previously rendered images. It would happen at KDM startup, and then when KDE was loading. Never lasted more than a second or so.
Bizarrely, it only happened when using the openSUSE-branding theme for KDM in KDE4. When I replaced that with the upstream-branding (basically the default KDM theme that ships with KDE4), it stopped happening.
Never happened with the previous drivers and openSUSE, and yet only happens with the openSUSE theme, so I'm not sure where the fault may lie.
