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.

Xorg log file

attaching an Xorg.log file, not sure if it's helpful.

Also, my "Smolt" hardware profile can be found here:

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.
