Description of problem:
I have a Packard Bell 1010 monitor and a Matrox Millennium G450 DualHead video card. Both worked well under Red Hat Linux 8.0 with the following settings: 800x600 display, 60 Hz refresh, and 16-bit color depth. After installing Fedora Core 4 I now experience the following upon boot-up:
- The Grub loader display is fine
- The text display logging is fine
- When the Fedora splash screen comes on however the display is ghosted. That is everything that is displayed, text, icons, etc. are displayed multiple times with images overlayed, producing a severe ghosting effect and rendering text unreadable. This effect continues after logging in. I was able to verify (barely) that the display settings were correct (i.e. the same as before).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. This requires Matrox Millennium G450 DualHead video card & Packard Bell 1010 monitor.
1. Boot Fedora Core 4
2. Press <Esc> to enter Grub loader. Observe clear display. Select Fedora OS
3. Observe clear text as startup progresses.
4. Observe garbled/ghosted display when Fedora splash screen appears.
Actual Results: Display is ghosted with unreadable text.
Expected Results: Clear display.
The problem is fixed in xorg-x11-6.8.2-45.
