Description Joachim Backes 2005-06-14 06:52:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC3 to FC4 having problems with X11: when leaving
a GNOME session with Gnome Menue->logout, then the display hardware is not
reset correctly: there remains a ugly pattern with red vertical stripes
on my LCD display so nothing more is readable.

Additionally, switching from the X Desktop to consoles with Ctl+Alt+F...
shows the same colored console windows (not black ones). 

My display: Nokia 800 Xa
My graphics card: Matrox G400 with 32 MB memory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade from FC3 to FC3, start and leave X11

Actual Results:  Strange display contents

Expected Results:  a clean console (black).

the problem was solved when using the X11 module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
from FC3 (1 reboot needed).

This seems to be a dupe of bug #153729 which seems to be caused by a
regression in libvgahw being tracked in bug #161242.  You might want to
CC yourself on these bugs also.

Please have a look at them, and their various dupes, etc. to see if you
believe it to be the same issue.

Thanks in advance.
