backingstore + fullscreen +"i get nothing" problem

hello,

I'm on ubuntu x64 running 32b linux hosted AROS.
My comp' is a Dell M4400 with nvidia 1700.
I downloaded nightly builds from 20130104 for 32bits and 20120105 for x64.

====
BackingStore pb :

I've put
Option "Backingstore" "True"


in all device sections of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

but... even with that I have refreshing problems (blank parts in AROS screen)

when I cat xorg logs I get;
oanemous@oanemous-linuxbox:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log grep Backing
       
[     8.029] (**) NVIDIA(0): Option "BackingStore" "True"
       
[     8.029] (**) NVIDIA(0): Backing store enabled

The problem is the same on 64bits version of AROS.
===
fullscreen pb :

When launched with --fullscreen option, 32bits version don't go in fullscreen. Sysinfos inside AROS tells that the option is used.

In 64 bits, the fullscreen is okay.
===
the last but not the least :
When I change resolution from inside the ScreenMode Prefs to the native resolution of my screen (1440*900), it works ok until I shutdown AROS and try to launch it again (or simply restart it).
Then : I've the boot that begin, and... instead of showing wanderer, it shows... nothing and stop on this :
BITS PER PIXEL 24 


[I2CInit
intuition
.decoroffsets titleobj 1144menuobj 1152winobj 1160


Note that the problem does not appear with another resolution, just the native one.

Note that when I come back to gnome, I have to set my resolution again cause it stays on the one choosed inside AROS.

This problem does not appear with 32bits version.
===

it's frustrating :) On one side, I have an AROS that does not go in fullscreen but works well of we except the backingstore pb (so it is unusable in fact), on the other side, I have a bad resolution and a fullscreen...

any ideas ?

thanx,
OAN3/TWMM

Hello,

Very strange fact : I crashed my X Server after too much playing with nvidia-settings and /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I needed to get back to the original configuration, and... tataaaa, refreshing problems disapeared.

Do you beleive this ? Just magical ?

Other problems are still here. No one have a clue for --fullscreen mode ?
Is this because I'm running a 64 bits Ubuntu and a 32 bits AROS ?

Thanx,

OAN3/TWMM.

Sigh, it works for me, but you'll find some threads in this forum where people are telling that fullscreen doesn't work .

hello,
yea, i've looked at the threads before posting. noone has a real answer. it doesn't please me to "downgrade" to an older version.
anyway, i'll try to make icaros work on linux hosted to see if this is a problem with the nightly build or with my linux distro (ubuntu 12.04 x64).
anyway, it's maybe sufficient for dev, i dunno, have before to get some experience with aros/amikit/amigaforever... :)
cheers,
