Affects Version/s: Minecraft 1.8.1-pre2
Fix Version/s: Minecraft 1.8.8
Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 Laptop
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32-bit with LXQT Desktop Environment
1 GB RAM (sigh, I know it is below the minimum) and 256 MB nVidia GeForce 6800, with official drivers, not Nouveau
No background apps running.
Default texture pack, pure vanilla.
Most dropped items glitch. They flicker side to side and get stuck in the corners of blocks on the ground instead of floating as they usually do. I only noticed this in 1.8.1-pre2, not in 1.8.1-pre1 or 1.8, however I only downloaded pre1 the day before pre2 was released, so I did not get a good look at it.
