From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Gecko/20040804 Galeon/1.3.17

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Actual Results:
Screen with horizontal stipes going across it and a blinking cursor.

Expected Results:
Normal virtual terminal login text.

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.

xorg-x11- will be released for Fedora Core 3 when 6.8.2
is finalized.  Please try the rawhide xorg-x11 to see if the problem
is resolved in the new release, and provide a status update.

Also, if the problem persists in rawhide xorg-x11, file a bug report
in the X.Org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg"
component.  Once your bug report is filed in X.Org bugzilla, paste
the URL here and Red Hat will track the issue in the X.Org tracker,
and review any fixes that become available for consideration in
future updates.

Thanks in advance.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO", awaiting upstream bug URL and
rawhide xorg testing results.
Comment 6 Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-02-19 19:39:30 EST
xorg-x11- does not resolve the problem. 

Bug filed upstream at https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2580
Comment 7 Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-02-19 19:40:47 EST
Note beta bugzilla will not move this bug out of the NEEDINFO state (reported bug).
Comment 8 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-15 10:59:35 EDT
Ok, tracking bug in X.Org bugzilla.

Setting status to "UPSTREAM"
