Default mini9/GMA950 Screen Flicker when scrolling text in Terminal/ - 05-02-2009, 12:02 AM

- Running 10.5.6/Dell EFI 1.1 (this is my third osx86 install)
- Mini9 / 2GB / no BT / otherwise standard w/8GB config.

Installer and every step went smooth (beyond trimming the retail DVD), and everything works great. However, when I am in iTerm (in there quite a bit) and am scrolling up or down, or the window starts scrolling with lots of output if I cat a log or start a compile, the display seems to "lag" or not "redraw" properly. At first, I'd assume cpu/memory lag since everything is integrated but this is right after a fresh boot, nothing running and only one tab open. Is this normal with the GMA950?

Could it be the font? I'm using a svn build of iTerm and don't have the issue anywhere else, even with shared video. I've got the machine pretty lagged before, streaming radio and working in other windows, but never had that "redraw" lag like this.
