Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1008055
after 4d, 21+ hours, radeon RV620 GL [FirePro V3700] flickers dual screen single card
Last modified: 2015-02-17 12:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
At some point, within a few minutes short of 108 hours of runtime, the screen starts to flash like the visible bell is being triggered. Have left it to run for about an hour or so before rebooting to get it to stop. Tried restarted the xserver, but made no difference, the complete reset wot don it :/
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# uname -vr
3.10.10-200.fc19.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Aug 29 19:05:45 UTC 2013
Fairly reproducible, has happened consistently, have to wait just under 5 days though.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start system
2. watch screen :)
Not that big of a deal, usually get a new kernel and have to reboot anyway.

Oh, yeah. One other tidbit. The login dialog screen does not flash, just after logging back in. If it was flashing, it picks it right back up.
That was not too clear. Once the screens start flashing, logging out gets me back to the login dialog, which does not flash. But once logged back in w/o a reboot, the flashing immediately resumes.
meh. I can't add either.

Seems like it was up to tricks when I logged in, so it fell over before that.
Today however, I was logged in when it happened:

This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
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 19 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.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 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.
