View Full Version : [SOLVED] Jaunty ATI xserver no backfill after jaunty-proposed update!

January 9th, 2010, 09:37 PM
Hello world!
Been using since summer 2009 the xserver no backfill from PPA: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/xserver-no-backfill and it was working fine with my ATI video card. No heavy CPU usage when restoring from minimized and a general performance boost were the results of that use.
But recently made an upgrade and realized that xserver-xorg-core package (check it from synaptic manager) has been upgraded to a jaunty-proposed version and the problems started to appear again!
So using Synaptic I selected this package and hit CTRL-E key in order to choose the nobackfill version. This way things got back to normal!
Take good care!

aaah, thank you! Wish I would have found this or known about that function in synaptic before trying to fix it vigilante style for the last two days... Heh, that's life, eh?

THanks again.

Can you please tell me how to do this in Ubuntu 10.04?
