Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102119
Fuzzy X Graphics with Neomagic Chipset (RH9)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:47 EDT
Description of problem:
neomagic Chipset driver (/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/neomagic_drv.o)
produces fuzzy X display and does not support the 1024x768 video mode.
(tested on an IBM Thinkpad 600E)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The problem appears right from the installation CD.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try installing RH9 on Thinkpad 600E
Fuzzy/distorted screen on X ONLY! Text mode looks fine.
Solution : use VESA driver instead, vesa_drv.o
Please report this problem to XFree86.org bugzilla, so that the neomagic
upstream maintainer is aware of the problem and can investigate the matter.
Attach your X server log file and config file to the bug report also, so
the maintainer has a bit more detail to start with.
I've no neomagic hardware available to me unfortunately, and no knowledge
of the neomagic hardware or specifications. However, if you provide a URL
to your upstream bug report, I'll track the bug upstream and try to backport
any fixes if possible.
No upstream bug URL provided, can't track upstream investigation/resolution,
setting resolution to "WONTFIX".
