Sadly, the little black box corruption still exists with this. Wish they would finally fix it.
Phoronix: Intel X.Org Driver Now Handles Better Tear-Free
Chris Wilson of Intel this morning released an updated xf86-video-intel X.Org driver. With this latest 3.0 pre-release comes support for TearFree on transformed outputs. There's also been other changes...
Any chance this fixes the tearing issues for which a workaround was to disable culling in Gnome Shell for example?

And what is this tearfree you speak of? It doesn't seem to be a package or a tool.
However, if the compositor just does a plain old SwapBuffer, the update is tear free. (Of course that in itself has negative implications for prime and slaves like udl.)
The root cause here is the inadequacy of the DRI2 protocol for efficient and tear-free compositing.
I have no idea what you are talking about In Fedora 17 I had no tearing and now I have. I would just like to know against what package I report the bug and how should I title it.
Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Option "SwapbuffersWait" "true"
Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
Option "TearFree" "true"
I've used these options myself and they work perfectly, I think I get better performance from switching to sna too.
when will opengl 3.3 and these feature get in xf86-video-ati
