Bug#756966: Stripped black and white background on activites page in Gnome after coming out of suspend.

Before I do a reinstall. I will try the other catalyst driver that AMD offers. They also offer a 14.6 beta. I will give it a go this weekend and report back.

I know very little polish from my grandparents who swam over here to the states. I had to look up the spelling for thank you. The spelling and pronunciation is crazy different. I've got by with my family by knowing the basic greetings and numbers. That is about all.

Thanks for the help!

Can you please send those to bug tracker too? Anything you send to
756966@bugs.debian.org will show up in the web browsable version [1]
which will allow more people to look into your problem. As a matter of
fact, I might not be able to resolve it by myself and if so, I'll point
you to the correct people who will also require this information.

Include those in your email too :)

Anyway, lets get back to your problem. In your dmesg there is a message
that indicates an error in fglrx driver (ATI Catalyst):

[10009.718081] [fglrx:firegl_pplib_notify_event] *ERROR* PPLIB: PPLib
Notify Event failed!
[10009.718084] [fglrx:firegl_pplib_notify_event] *ERROR*
ulEventType = 00000002, ulEventData = 00000000

Searching for it returns a few results (some even mentioning stripes).

Please do one more test for me:
1. Switch to tty1 (ctrl+alt+f1)
2. Run pm-suspend (it will suspend your system)
3. Wake up your system (by using power button)
4. Switch back to DE (alt+f7)
And check if the stripes also appear.

I attempted the test in two ways.

First I did it by logging in as root. I ran pm-suspend. My computer turned off and went into suspend. When I pressed the power button to turn the computer back on the computer fired up. Fans blazing. I however did not get an image on my screen. I did not get any video feed at all. My monitor stayed in stand-by. I waited 2-3 minutes, and was forced to power off the computer by hand. Restart went fine, and computer booted up like normal.

Second I did it by logging in as my user name. I ram sudo pm-suspend. Which may be the equivalent of running pm-suspend as root user. I am not sure, however the same exact result came as the first attempt. I had to power off manually and restart.

I have only thought of one thing. Mind you I am not a Linux debugger/programmer, just an avid user. I remember back to my Arch linux days, that you have to set-up swap space in order to use suspend. When I installed debian/gnome, I just chose a general installation. I never created my own partitions. If I create separate partitions on the install It might have a better chance at success. I'll give it a go this weekend perhaps.
