User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040505
Description of problem:
Hardware: Advent 7011 with sis 650 graphics chipset
On leaving or restarting X the kernel appears to freeze (no response
from anything ie. Caps Lock) and the screen is left with vertical
lines of the same colour as the screen before it. It includes logging
out of gnome, dropping to a terminal (Ctl+Alt+Fx), or shuting down the
computer. CPU fan speed goes to full wack, hard shutdown required.
Doesn't occur always, perhaps 1 in 2 times.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get an Advent 7011.
2. Drop out of X in any way possible.
Actual Results: Complete freeze requiring hard reboot.
Expected Results: No freeze should occur!
Please upgrade to Fedora Core 2 and see if the problem still occurs.
If it's still reproduceable, please reopen the bug, and attach
your X server log, config file, /var/log/messages as individual
uncompressed file attachments using the link below.
Its fine with xorg, seems just to be with XFree86. Don't have the
logs anymore. May reinstall fc1 in furture and post them.
