Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 140253
r128 (Rage 128) corrupts virtual consoles on X restart

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Description of problem:
As soon as X is restarted the virtual terminals have horizontal
stripes going across them and no text appears (although the blinking
cursor moves around the screen in the expected fashion as if things
were working correctly).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn the machine on.
2. Let it boot and start X and wait for a login.
3. Press Ctrl-alt-backspace.
4. Press Ctrl-alt-F1.
Screen with horizontal stipes going across it and a blinking cursor.
Normal virtual terminal login text.
lspci output for the card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 RF/SG AGP
Still seeing this (just in case it matter the kernel is kernel-2.6.10-1.741_FC3)
although I have now realised it is resolution and depth related. The lines don't
happen with resolutions lower than 1400x1050 and will also not occur if the
depth is not 24.
Just for the record the lines appear to be vertical rather than horizontal.
