Description Jason Long 2009-03-12 12:49:32 EDT
Description of problem: While testing https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_intelvideo_kms, Modesetting is working, but there is a "flickering" between Plymouth's "progress screen" and when GDM appears. Basically, after seeing the Fedora splash screen for half a minute or so, the screen goes completely black for approx. 20 seconds, and then the screen changes to a blue background and GDM appears. I am using the "fade-in" Plymouth plugin, though it seems to behave the same for other plugins as well. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.6.0-14.fc11.i586 How reproducible: every time Steps to Reproduce: 1. start up the system Expected results: No flickering or mode changes should occur from initrd right through to GDM Additional info: I will attach an Xorg.log file in a moment.

Created attachment 334966 [details] Xorg log file attaching an Xorg.log file, not sure if it's helpful. Also, my "Smolt" hardware profile can be found here: http://www.smolts.org/client/show/pub_e5adecb3-9df6-4355-9dfc-a5622c85dc7f

This bug is no longer occurring in latest Rawhide. The transition is quite smooth. (still no mouse cursor, but that's a separate issue). So this bug can be closed, thanks.

Thanks, good news. We might have a fix for the missing cursors soon too.
