I've recently acquired an IBM T22 thinkpad, with a savage card. More
specifically a Savage IX-MV. There are a few bugs I'd like to look into if
someone can give me a hand, mostly concerning Xv support. This is all with
the latest git version of the driver.
Bug 1) Occasionally I get weird stripes across the upper part of the video,
somewhat akin to the image in this bug report:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2535. I can make the corruption
disappear in eg kaffeine if I make a tooltip appear over the video stream.
Also, this goes away when switching to full screen.
Bug 2) When changing resolution with xrandr and subsequently watching a video,
not the whole Xv viewport is updated. Rather, only slightly less than half of
the left side contains any video. The right hand side is blue, like when
taking a screen capture of Xv video.
So it seems there is some error in either Xv window setup, or content update.
If someone could tell me at which functions to look, I could play around a
bit and see what happens, hopefully leading to a good bug report and/or a
