HowTo / Notes

Fullscreen app switching won't work

Application switching (alt+tabbing) may cause X to crash.  This is being tracked in bugid#35718

For the Marco window manager, it's been reported that checking "Fullscreen" will work around this bug.

For Unity3d, it's been reported that checking "Borderless mode" will work around this bug.

Game virtually unplayable - bad texture mapping

With orm=fbo, models are rendered like ghosts with missing texture mappings. With orm=backbuffer, some models have flat textures rendered and performance is incredibly slow.

 This is tracked in bugid#35925
