Default "Loading Mouse" Animation Flicker w/ NVIDIA drivers

Hi.

It looks like you guys can help me out. Before XGL, I ran my system without nVIDIA drivers, because my loading animation for my mouse would flicker. I never needed the drivers, as I dual boot my machine for gaming.

Now, I'm using XGL, and my mouse is flickering when it's on the loading animation. Does anyone know how I can resolve this, or remove the animation? I tried a software mouse, but, it makes large bricks around my mouse, which is even more annoying.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to post here. =]

Also, I have an NVIDIA FX5500 card and Athlon64 3500+ on a Fedora Core 5 32bit system.

I have tried combinations of HWCursor being True, False, as well as SWCursor being undefined, True, False, etc...

Anyone have a solution to this? This is really bugging me, if I can't fix it I will have to do without the drivers and XGL. :/

My brother's computer is running OpenSuse 10.1/GF6600 and suffers from the same problem - my older athlon-1000/FX5200 works well.

It is a known bug, that still exists after several driver updates. Not sure why a mouse flicker issue cannot be fixed, but support for a whole new API was added.

Hopefully the 9xxx driver fixes this issue...

I can get rid of the flicker with HWCursor false and SWCursor true. Unforutunately pairing this with composite crashes X for me. Not sure if XGL/Compiz needs the composite extension or not: I think it composites itself in the nested server it uses.

Anyway, it's been bugging me for a long time. I should know better, but I am surprised every time a new driver version comes out and this ancient bug still exists.

As has been discussed on other threads on this forum for the same issue, this bug will be fixed in the first 1.0-9xxx driver release.

Thanks,
Lonni

This is seriously driving me up a wall. My birthday is in a few days, and I'm thinking about splurging for a 6800 or 7x card to make sure this goes away... I could use an upgrade, anyway...
