I emailed my details on what I have done on two machines that are
exhibiting this problem. Because these machines are different in
their hardware and have not expressed the problem in the past, I
dont think its a hardware issue.
Before the new binutils both machines did not have this problem.
I dont know if it is the binutils change that has caused this problem
as I do not have the time to exhaustively test.
My email was to try to get others to reproduce the problem hence I
gave details on what I did.
So, has anyone done the procedure I have and seen or not seen the
problem where xaos version 3.0 draws garbage when renderring. (run
xaos and press the 'a' key).
I haven't given kernel config files or hardware details because I
dont think its relevant until someone can say "I have done the steps
you have outlined and I dont see you problem".
I do not have time to debug this myself (I would also need to learn a
few things) however, I have been running -CURRENT for more than 5 years
and know that I have upgraded my software correctly and am fairly
convinced that hardware is not an issue so I am reporting this problem
to see if others can reproduce it as a service to the FreeBSD community
(I wont even charge for it!).
I also do not intend to report this to the binutils maintainers because
it may be a FreeBSD issue, not a binutils issue.
