Radeon 7000 running in dual head locks up when switching VT. Only X
locks up, while it is possible to ssh into the system. If you do not
switch VT manually, killing and restarting X works fine.
Xorg.0.log says the following line repeatedly when X locks up:
(EE) RADEON(0): Idle timed out, resetting engine...
Option "NoAccel" prevents this lockup. "RenderAccel" "No" does not
prevent this lockup, nor does all XaaNo options when used together.
DRI does not seem to matter as it DRI is unavailable in dual head.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
