Description Darin May 2004-07-01 19:56:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
My HP Omnibook 4150 with and ATI Rage Mobility video driver freezes
and goes into a mode wher the LCD panel itelf looks like there's an
electrical problem.    The boot /seems/ to proceed normally just
without further video.

Rebooting to the older kernel-2.6.6-1.435 kernel does not demonstrate
the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.1

Actual Results:  Wacko video.

Expected Results:  Normal non-wacko video.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-07-01 21:08:13 UTC
which exact driver are you using ?
Anything in the kernel logs (dmesg) ?

Comment 2 Darin May 2004-07-01 23:19:39 UTC
xorg "ati" driver

It blew chunks after X started while starting other services so dmesg
was already complete. However the last entry in boot.log was:

mdmpd: mdmpd failed

However -- I got it to boot under this kernel.  I'm still playing with
it, but it was happening consistently. Dunno what could have been the
issue other than some chipset latch sticking somewhere.

Comment 3 Darin May 2004-07-02 03:03:40 UTC
I just thought that point in the boot.log is when xorg switches back
to text mode before switching back into graphics mode for the login

Perhaps it's an AGP/video mode issue?

Comment 4 Darin May 2004-07-06 18:31:58 UTC
This isn't happenenig again.  Either it's a fluke or the casue has
been ironed out in the last kernel released pushed in the last few
days.  I'm running 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 now.
