currently suffering screen tearing when i watch a video file using vlc (or other) in gnome: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_tearing
i've set everything i can find (monitors, nvidia settings, compiz) to 60hz refresh rate but still no success
weirdly when i log out and change my session to xbmc it all works fine with no screen tearing, but in gnome (my de of choice) the screen tearing persists, even if i run xbmc from within gnome
using an nvidia geforce gtx 460
not sure if this is the right place to post, but refresh rate seems to be a hardware type problem and i like sabayon forums
does anyone know what else i need to change the refresh rate in to stop the screen tearing? or is there another way to fix this?
