Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2008-05-22 07:28:27 EDT
Description of problem: On my laptop (Asus M6R, ATi Radeon Mobility 9100IGP) switching to the text console and back works only until I restart the X server. After the X server restart, the Ctrl-Alt-F<n> shows only slightly garbled screen contents from the X session, not the text console. The text console is apparently active, though: I have been able to type in "root" and the password, and the new console session has been visible in the "w" command output. Alt-F8 switches back to the graphics session, which works without problem. My graphics card is the following (according to lspci): 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS300M AGP [Radeon Mobility 9100IGP] Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-server-Xorg-126.96.36.1991-29.20080415.fc9.i386 xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-14.fc9.i386 How reproducible: 100 % Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot the system to the runlevel 5. 2. Press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to switch to the text console, Alt-F8 or whatever to get back to the X session. 3. Press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace (or log in and log out) to restart the X server. 4. Press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to switch to the text console. Actual results: The text console is visible in step 2, garbled screen in graphics mode is displayed in step 4. Expected results: The text console should be visible both in step 2 and step 4. Additional info: In fully updated Fedora 8 as of maybe two weeks ago it worked correctly. I will attach my xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 21:05:26 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '9'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

The bug is not present in fully updated F10, as far as I can test it.
