Description of problem:
I observe the same problem on an old thinkpad with a trident cyber 9397dvd video
card, than the one described here:
When gdm starts, the screen becomes completely white, and only the hw cursor
remains reactive. The laptop still runs fine, and is reacheable with ssh. When
switching back to a VT, the console is also completely garbled (vesafb is in
use), but it still works. I suspect a problem with the trident driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora development packages (xorg-x11-6.8.2-10)
The problem appeared since a few days, maybe when xorg-x11-6.8.2-10 was
released, but I'm not 100% sure about this.
