Hi, everyone

I use the i3wm, but it is tearing, someone suggest me to run a compositor to avoid it, but I cannot find anything about the compositor in Gentoo Wiki, what is the package I need to emerge?

It is very strange that it is OK now after I stop the compositor.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf*:
Section "Device"
    ...
    Option "TearFree"
EndSection

(Only works for standard drivers. Nvidia users - forget it!)
