Problems with accelerated graphics
Currently, I cannot use accelerated graphics. On my desktop machine I see visual artifacts. On a VM I get segfaults.
I've attached a few videos - in simplescreenrecorder-2022-01-11_10.24.08.mkv you will see that as I pan the screen, many of the through-hole pads are switching between their proper yellow color and a grayish blue. This is with "no antialiasing".
In simplescreenrecorder-2022-01-11_10.25.33.mkv I've turned on high-quality antialiasing. In this case, in addition to the pads changing color during a pan, I also get flickering of the screen.
In simplescreenrecorder-2022-01-11_10.34.54.mkv I get flickering just by moving the mouse around without doing any panning.
Steps to reproduce
- Enable accelerated graphics and high quality antialiasing
- Notice various visual artifacts

This is a Fedora 35 Linux machine with an NVidia graphics card using the open source nouveau kernel driver.
I'll try to get some coredumps from the VMs that experience segfaults. Stay tuned...
