Description of problem:
Login screen is corrupt with many triangular artifacts. After login, GNOME desktop is also corrupt.  Once I start an application (e.g. terminal or firefox), the screen becomes normal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Version     : 7.1.0
Release     : 5.20130408git6e74aacc5.fc19

How reproducible:
Every time I boot up the system with GUI.

Additional info:
The system is upgraded from Fedora 18 to 19 using fedup.  
Graphic hardware is onboard graphics of the AMD 690G chipset.
Monitor configuration: EIZO FlexScan S1701. VGA connection. KVM switch is being used.

I created this as a trial workaround for the problem, but it did not work.

Comment 8 mousehippie 2013-09-07 02:07:35 EDT
I searched for other reports, and found that bugs 981096 and 990947 seem to be the same problem as mine.
Comment 9 mousehippie 2014-01-10 16:22:38 EST
I clean-installed Fedora 20, but the problem persists.
Comment 10 Hin-Tak Leung 2014-09-18 05:35:58 EDT
duplicate of 'Bug 981096 - corrupted login display and first session after boot (2nd session okay)' , as you said.
Comment 11 mousehippie 2014-12-16 18:49:49 EST
The problem persists also on Fedora 21 Workstation.
Comment 12 Hin-Tak Leung 2014-12-17 04:10:13 EST
I no longer have that hardware (that laptop died). In any case, I seems to think that it was okay with the gnome 3.12 copr, or maybe I am wrong? My old laptop died back in mid-sept, and my memory of it is already fading.
Comment 13 Fedora End Of Life 2015-11-04 09:39:27 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '21'.

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.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 21 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, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

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.
Comment 14 Fedora End Of Life 2015-12-01 21:57:05 EST
Fedora 21 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-12-01. Fedora 21 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
