Please report this issue to X.Org developers by filing a bug report in
the X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg"

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that
become available for consideration in future updates.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER", awaiting X.Org bug URL
for tracking.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-26 16:29:05 EDT
This report contains insufficient information to be able to diagnose the
problem.  Additionally, the problem sounds on the surface to be a video
driver specific issue.  Since Nvidia does not provide hardware documentation
to open source developers for their hardware, in general only Nvidia is able
to fix bugs in either the "nvidia" or "nv" drivers.

In order for Nvidia to investigate bugs in the "nv" driver, a bug report
must be filed in X.Org bugzilla as requested in comment #1 above.

It does not appear that anyone has filed a bug about this problem in X.Org
bugzilla as of yet, so we are unable to track this issue any further without
additional communication.

Setting status to "CANTFIX" (lack of information/response).
