(Under gentoo linux)...

Cheers... ;-)
Uh, looks like a compiz version < 0.7.8.
You need to revert this commit in your checkout. If you checked out directly from git, use
Code:
git revert 55bfd98979f273fd542ed2bd979e4054056cc478

Default Re: Redraw issue with compiz.

Thanks again, maniac, but I cannot compile it...

I have the compiz version 0.7.8, as you can say here:
Code:
oric workarounds # compiz --version
compiz 0.7.8
I've tried to compile the commit that you have told me, but again I get the same error... Maybe I am missing something??...

I just download your snapshot and I get 6 files. I try to make then and I get the error you can see before...

do I need some thing more??...

Best Regards... :-)

Yeeeep... I've been able to compile it doing the revert instead of download the snapshot of the link that you have posted it..

I'm going to test it...

I'll be back... :-)

Thanks again...

I'm having trouble compiling it as well...also in Gentoo.

Also, how does one disable 'loose-binding'?

Do all nvidia users have this problem, or just those with mobile graphics cards?

Default Re: Redraw issue with compiz.

Well... finally all seems to work right now... (thanks to maniac103, OF COURSE!!!)...

Here is what I've done...

1º) Make a work folder and go there
Code:
~ $ mkdir ~/compiz
~ $ cd ~/compiz
2º) Download the last snapshot (via git) of workarounds...
Code:
~/compiz $ git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/fusion/plugins/workarounds
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/cpa/compiz/workarounds/.git/
remote: Counting objects: 295, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (291/291), done.
remote: Total 295 (delta 184), reused 0 (delta 0)
Receiving objects: 100% (295/295), 51.34 KiB, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (184/184), done.
3º) Enter to the new folder (workarounds) and revert to 55bfd98979f273fd542ed2bd979e4054056cc478
Code:
~/compiz $ cd workarounds/
~/compiz/workarounds $ git revert 55bfd98979f273fd542ed2bd979e4054056cc478
Auto-merged workarounds.c
Finished one revert.
Created commit c903d61: Revert "Use XWMHints structure provided by core."
 1 files changed, 10 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-)
(Maybe a less or an editor show you information about this revert. Exit from the editor and follow to the next step).
4º) Make && install the new plugin
Code:
~/compiz/workarounds $ make 
convert   : workarounds.xml.in -> build/workarounds.xml
bcop'ing  : build/workarounds.xml -> build/workarounds_options.h
bcop'ing  : build/workarounds.xml -> build/workarounds_options.c
schema    : build/workarounds.xml -> build/compiz-workarounds.schema
compiling : workarounds.c -> build/workarounds.lo
compiling : build/workarounds_options.c -> build/workarounds_options.lo
linking   : build/libworkarounds.la
~/compiz/workarounds $ make install
install   : /home/cpa/.compiz/plugins/libworkarounds.so
install   : /home/cpa/.compiz/metadata/workarounds.xml
install   : build/compiz-workarounds.schema
5º) Restart compiz or X
6º) Now you can go to compiz settings, search for workarounds plugin and change your settings... (I've activated the "Force synchronization between X and GLX option) and test it...

Good luck!!!...

And again, thanks to maniac for this!!!

Oh sweet, the plugin compiles and installs correctly. I'll do some general desktop stuff with compiz turned on to see how it performs.
Edit: Seems to be working nicely. Thanks cpasoft, and mega thanks to maniac!

Oh cool. On 0.7.9+gitsomething (from shame's debian repo) it compiles and installs that way (need to revert that one commit though). And so far it seems to cure the problem. Still have to check with a 180.xx driver where the corruptions were much worse.

Thanks, guys. You the man.. uh.. men.

185.13 fixes this (just use strict-bindings) it is no longer slow, even with VDPAU.

I don't think so... It's still slow with this beta release.
