Default Blinking desktop cursor with 6600GT

Hi!
Recently I received a ViewPoint Geforce 6600GT (before I had an Albatron 6600), I installed it and it works fine. Except, the desktop cursor: it is blinking, when it is animated (I use silver theme - 3d animated cursors).
On previous graphic card there was no such issue. I also tried to reinstall nvidia driver and to reconfigure xorg.conf (without extensions like ranrdacell...):
#sax2 -m 0=nvidia
but issue still persists.
This issue doesn't show up with nv (opensource) driver.

I use Xorg 6.9 (compiled from source), suse 10.

I tried
Option "HWcursor" "Disabled"
Option "SWcursor" "Enabled"
and it helps a lot, but still cursor is blinking (a little bit now).
Option "NVagp" "0" doesnt help here nothing (already tried).

Default Re: Blinking desktop cursor with 6600GT

Hi,

Is there a list of such "known bugs" available for the nvidia linux drivers? (I know that this is not an open source piece of software.) There is a list of "known issues" in the readme file that comes packaged with the driver; but the readme for the 8178 driver makes no mention of this problem, even though it has apparently been "known" for a while.

(For me this problem is a killer. I can't use a software cursor on my home machine with its 6200-based card, because the software cursor does not work with my kids games and stuff which use gl. And I can't use the hardware cursor because of this flickering. I'm hoping for a solution, but driver updates have come and gone ...)

Thanks

I have the same problem using a 6600GT on my dual Athlon MP rig (AMD 760MPX chipset).

So, do anyone get rid of this problem ?

I tried the kororaa livecd to check the xgl desktop and I noticed that the animated cursor do not blink at all !

So, is it a problem with Xorg ? with the nvidia agp driver ? with the kernel (vanilla here) ?

I tried xgl also, cursor was still blinking, but not as much as in xorg.

Option "SWCursor" "true"
in xorg.conf helps.

As was stated in previous threads on this forum, this bug will be resolved in the first 1.0-9xxx driver release.

netllama:
Why we should wait for 9xxx driver for this to be fixes? Why it can't be fixed sooner?
My beautifuel animated cursors looks ugly when they're blinking.

I'm not sure what you mean by sooner, however the next released driver will be 1.0-9xxx.
