Re: strange "checkerboard" tearing with xv
Update: I wanted to see if this is an issue with my current OS install, so I freshly installed Debian Stable on a USB stick, upgraded the kernel to 2.6.39 and installed nvidia drivers version 275.09.07. Same problem.
I then took that same USB stick and put it in my old computer, which has an AGP 6800 GT card. No problem there. So, I guess this is either a bug roughly specific to my GTX 460 or a hardware problem.
