Description of problem: after a yum update, in which my ATI radeon-driver was updated, the font gets defaced. looks UGLY, you can't work with it home.arcor.de/michael.jung11/schrift.png <--- there you can see how it looks like Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: i didn't try? Steps to Reproduce: 1. update your radeon driver 2. wait some time (sometimes the font is fine, sometimes it isn't) 3. enjoy Actual results: glitched fonts Expected results: non-glitched fonts?

Got the same problem on a FireGL V3100 (R400) after updating to xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-61.fc10.x86_64 . However, xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-62.fc10 fixed it for me. It is available on Koji : http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=73971 Flo, could you test -62 and report ?

Comment 3 François Cami 2008-12-12 20:33:52 UTC
Switching to Verified as a fix is pending. Florian, thank you for confirming.
Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2008-12-12 20:58:26 UTC
No, this is not VERIFIED. Please, anything above ASSIGNED to maintainers. Actually this is not even properly bug triaged. Reporter, please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below. Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please. We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information. Thanks in advance.

Comment 6 flo 2008-12-13 15:33:37 UTC
Created attachment 326820 [details] the xorg-log. was created for another purpose, but the font glitch was present, too
Comment 7 flo 2008-12-13 15:35:03 UTC
Created attachment 326821 [details] my xorg.conf. everything except the synaptics section was created with Xorg -configure
Comment 8 flo 2008-12-13 15:35:50 UTC
sorry, but i cannot try all that with the glitching driver, because i need my system running, and with the newer driverversion everything works. that's why, i do not want to start without my xorg.conf, too. however, i created the xorg.conf with Xorg -configure, what seems to me like autodetection, and i only changed the synaptics section. my graphics card got always recognized as ati radeon mobility 9800 to be handled with the radeon driver btw: do i have to attach files to bugzilla, or can i post a link to it, too?
Comment 9 François Cami 2008-12-13 15:51:37 UTC
Uncompressed files attached to bugzilla are much better than external links as they will stay in bugzilla forever.
Comment 10 Matěj Cepl 2008-12-16 21:44:34 UTC
Created attachment 327172 [details] /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Comment 11 Matěj Cepl 2008-12-16 22:03:26 UTC
Reporter, could you please test with xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-62.fc10 from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=73971 ? Does it help?
Comment 12 François Cami 2008-12-16 23:49:43 UTC
Reporter is already running -62 and reported that this fixed the problem (see comment https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=475555#c2 ).
