Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1012188
Screen corruption after waking up from sleep
Last modified: 2013-09-26 08:26:21 EDT
Description of problem: after upgrading to latest available kernel (3.11.1-200), X screen gets corrupted when waking up from sleep. I'm running NVidia proprietary drivers, but I've also seen the same problem reported for Radeon/DRM at http://www.spinics.net/lists/dri-devel/msg45272.html.
I don't loose control of the computer. The server is responsive and I feel that I can click things on the desktop and it reacts accordingly. Also, I can switch between text TTY's with Ctrl-Alt-Fx or even kill the X server with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace. Upon restart, the X server works normally.
The problem occurs either with NVidia's 319.xx and 325.xx driver series.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-3.11.1-200.fc19.x86_64
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put computer to sleep/hibernate.
2. Wake computer up from sleeping/hibernating.
3. Graphical screen gets corrupted. However key combinations Ctrl-Alt-Fx and Ctrl-Alt-Backspace work, and I'm able to kill the X server which is then restarted normally.
Actual results: screen gets corrupted, but I can still control the computer.
Expected results: with kernel-3.10.11-200.fc19.x86_64 the system works as it should, restoring the screen correctly without garbling it.
Additional info: none.
We don't provide or support proprietary drivers.
