I have the same problem. The computer does not freeze, but graphics mode does not initialize properly. I am left with garbled text on the screen. I cannot ctrl-alt-backspace, or ctrl-alt-F1. The only way to get out is to ctrl-alt-del and wait for it to reboot. I was forced to downgrade to the original Xorg packages to get graphics mode back.

>Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): >last x update That is not good enough. Always specify the exact name-version-release, otherwise the second a new update comes out, your comment is no longer valid. Run "rpm -q xorg-x11" and paste the results. Also always attach your X server log and config file to every X bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment feature - even if you think the log/config file may not be useful. They always tell developers useful information 99.9% of the time that is helpful in diagnosing things. Thanks in advance. Setting status to NEEDINFO_REPORTER, and awaiting file attachments and xorg version.

Christopher can you please post or email the version and xServer log to to Mike. I removed my installation of FC4 and will have to spend almost an entire day to recreate this problem.. Thanks, Iyengar

Created attachment 119152 [details] X log file The version that gave be problems was 6.8.2-37.FC4.48.1 The attached log file is what I think is the log for the failed attempt.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-23 05:16:55 UTC
The attached log file is an unreadable binary file. Always attach log files as uncompressed text/plain files so they can be viewed directly in a web browser. We've released a new update 6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2, which should resolve this problem. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 168752 ***
