Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135993
Display loses sync when switching to text mode
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:10:45 EST
On a Compaq R3000Z widescreen laptop (1280x800), with an Nvidia
geforce chip, when you switch from X to a text mode virtual console,
the display loses sync. This also happens when X exits for good as
you try to shut down the system.
Not sure if this is a kernel issue or not.
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.
If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

It had been in NEEDINFO state since July 2005.
If this bug still exists in current errata kernels, please reopen this bug.
