Thread: Enabling backing store

  1. Enabling backing store

    Hi everybody!
    I am damning myself because I am trying since 2 days to enable the
    backing store option on my Linux machine. It is needed for the
    particular scientific software that I need to run for work, but even
    browsing the netand this usenet group (also others...) I didn't
    understand why.... or better, how!
    My config is a pentium IV machine, with Linux Suse 9.1, kernel 2.6 and
    the graphic card (I think it is involved somehow) is a Ati Radeon VT.\

    Thanks to everybody who can help me, all the best to everybody,

    Nicola

    In Section "Screen" of your XF86Config file, add a line:

    Option "BackingStore" "on"

    and restart the X server.
