Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 110714
Screen Flicker Makes Installation of V9 Unusable
Last modified: 2014-06-05 13:24:24 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed LRH v 9 using the GNOME GUI. Any type of activity (mouse,
loading apps, disk activity etc) causes severe flickering on the
screen. Screen returns to close to normal when nothing is done, but
even then it has some flickering stripes.
All hardware (ViewSonic A70 monitor, S3 ViRGE card) was correctly
probed during installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
don't know which exact component could cause this
Always, any time any mouse movement or app activity is done.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up,
2. log in
3. see screen flicker
Screen flickers very annoyingly
I am not an expert on Linux, this was my first installation and
experience with it. The installation went very smoothly, very easy.
But the flicker makes this unusable.
I checked the different FAQs on hardware and GUI, but did not find any
information that would match this effect.
Screen flickering sounds like an X issue.
Red Hat Linux 9 is no longer supported - Could you install Fedora Core
2 and see if you have the same issue
Without more information can not address. File a new bug if still an
issue on Fedora Core 2.
