Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104366
tv-out not working after graphical boot
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:18:22 EDT
Description of problem:
I've got a twinview configuration, showing the same thing on my tv as on my monitor.
When I set GRAPHICAL to no in /etc/sysconfig/init everything works fine (after
all services are started the computer screen pops up on my tv), but when I
change GRAPHICAL to yes I first see the rhgb screen (progressbar etc) on the tv
but after that it's all black.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems to happen all the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. change GRAPHICAL to yes in /etc/sysconfig/init
2. reboot computer
The rhgb screen is showed fine but after that (when I see the gnome stuff coming
up on the monitor) the tv is all black.
I first thought maybe my tv just didn't cope with the change in resolution
between the rhgb screen and my ordinary X screen, but I guess in that case it
would be fine again if I turn off and then on the tv, and it doesn't.
I'm running Nvidias 1.0-4496 driver on a ASUS GForce2 card, using the composite
output to the tv.
I've discovered that this is not a problem with rhgb as such, but seems to be
some kind of bug in XFree86. Closing this one and opening another in XFree86.
