Description Steven W. Orr 2005-07-07 15:47:09 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:
I have a Dell Dimension 4700C. Under Core 2.90 the VESA driver was selected and worked well. After an upgrade to Core 4 the same xorg.conf file does not work and is exactly the same file generated after running system-config-display --configure 

The X server does not get an error on startup but I do get the following message from startx:

(WW) VESA(0): Failed to set up write-combining range (0x26400000,0x7b0000)

The driver that actually worked is i810.

The actual display is just totally messed up and frozen. I can abort the server  via Ctl-Alt-F7.

I selected this as a high priority because I really don't expect people to be able to figure out what the correct colution is.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-display-1.0.29-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade from Core 2.90 to 4
2.
3.
  

Actual Results:  Display is trashed.

Expected Results:  See additional data below.

Additional info:

here's the new working xorg.conf section for the card:



Section "Device"

here's the same section for what breaks my box:

        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "vesa"
        VendorName  "Videocard vendor"

The problem should be fixed in xorg-x11-6.8.2-45.
Can you give it a try ?
Comment 2 Olivier Baudron 2005-08-12 12:09:58 EDT
From the author (by e-mail): the vesa driver works with -45.
