I must say that after that upgrade the new video driver gives us a lot of
troubles. I upgraded to 3 different PCs with totally different videocards,
and I get huge flickers when moving windows or logging in, especially on the
oldest one. But it is a generalized problem.
I hope they fix it soon. If anybody needs some tests done, just ask.


I have this "flickering" problem when moving windows also on a PC with
a AMD HD6xxx card, but this hasn't been introduced recently, but
existed already a year or more. I'm not able to track back when it
begun, but it is a long standing problem with the open source drivers
for AMD cards here. I haven't found anything suspect in any log file.
The flickering doesn't happen immediately, but after several minutes
or hours of using the system.
This is just for confirming that such a problem actually exists.
I don't know how to provide any particular information since there
isn't any problem shown in the Xorg logs.
