Neomagic driver mode restore is hosed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:13 EST
Description of problem:
On a thinkpad 600 the Neomagic driver no longer restores text mode correctly.
This was not a problem with older Fedora
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X on a TP600
2. Exit X
3. Admire mess
4. Email profanities to Mike Harris (optional)
What is the last known Fedora OS release, and xorg name-version-release that
the card was known to work.
Also, what is the exact name-version-release of the xorg-x11 packages you
are using that the problem is happening with?
This could be a duplicate of bug #168752 perhaps, or could be a neomagic

Patience grasshopper. The TP600 is currently waiting Hitachi to send a
replacement hard disk.
BTW - the updates that fixed the trident video seem to have broken its text
restore too, may be a pattern but dont know yet
