Re: Mathematica 5.2 redraw errors with X and nvidia graphics card

Thanks Arturas,

I did manage to fix the problem with your and Wolfram Support's
guidance.  The important bit in the xorg.conf file seems to be:

Section "Extensions"
         Option "Composite" "disable"
EndSection

I'm not sure why it works, but it does !

Best wishes to all,
-chris
