Screen flickers when OpenGL app is launched

Bug #157580 reported by lackofcreativity on 2007-10-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

My integrated ATI M450 card in my laptop is messed up. Whenever I open an OpenGL application (I tried opening multiple different games) the screen flickers to the point that you can't read even large print. No errors in memory and I've tried multiple different video drivers. I'll send any file you want.

It's Ubuntu 7.10 upgraded via internet from 7.04.

Here's my xorg.conf

I've reupgraded ubuntu from Feisty and now 3d desktop works and windowed OpenGL apps work, but when I launch a full-screen OpenGL app that worked in Feisty (Open Arena and Alien Arena), it gives this blurred look to everything to the point of unreadability.
