Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12146
MGA millenium 1 (2 mb) root window problems
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
When running gdm with a MGA millenium and then swiching to a text console
and back again the redhat logo is gone, this probably means that XFree 40
doesn't save the screen but instead sends an expose event, this does
however not work for root window images.
I just reproduced it on an S3 Virge DX / 4mb, so this definetly is an XFree40
Tried this again with Xfree-4.0-0.28 from the beta2/snapshot dir on gribble and
this still happens.
Confirmed on a Neomagic NM2160 and a Matrox Mystique under beta3
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Beta-5
Bug in the core X driver.
Could someone please enlighten me as to why the fact that it is in the X core, so it only affects just about all cards, is a good reason not to fix it.
