Description of problem:
when logging into one's account which has the screen saver enabled, the screen saver kills the output on the second monitor of a dual head display. At first I thought this was a problem with the video card/radeon driver, but I've discovered that its due to the screen saver or something related to how the screen saver deals with dual head initialization. Bug #138479 reports the same problem and I think they are barking up the wrong tree. (As I was for about 6 months, since the release of fedora core 3.) Dual mode xinerama display worked fine under fc2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Setup a new account.
2.Configure the screen saver so that it gets enabled at login.
3.log out and log back into your session.
Actual Results: Step 2, you log in and the second mointor is working just fine.
Step 3, you log in and the second monitor is blank.
Expected Results: Both monitors should be working!
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
