           Summary: Scrambled display output using Kuickshow ( partial
                    solution provided)
           Product: xorg
           Version: 7.5
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: foresthillmike at gmail.com
         QAContact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

Installed X11R7.5 and upgraded or recompiled any necessary component libraries
so that X11 and KDE compile without error.  After recompiling and reinstalling
KDE-3.5.8 and then using kuickshow  (part of kde-3.5.8 package) to view a jpg,
the display output is scrambled - horizontal lines, random display patterns,
distorted  images from display memory - it is different every time even when
viewing the same image.  xorg.conf has selected Driver "radeon" - the specific
driver that came with the X11 package was xf86-video-ati-6.13.0 ( which
provides radeon_drv.so ).  The problem only shows up with kuickshow - all other
graphic display software ( gimp, digikam ...) work ok.  kuickshow would not
display any graphic image ( jpg, png, icons ...) properly.  I downgraded to
xf86-video-ati-6.12.192 - same problem.  Downgraded further to
xf86-video-ati-6.12.7 and now kuickshow displays properly.  So some change
incorporated after 6.12.7 is the problem.
