Comment 1 Christopher Stone 2005-09-21 17:44:16 UTC
I have the same problem.  The computer does not freeze, but graphics mode does
not initialize properly.  I am left with garbled text on the screen.  I cannot
ctrl-alt-backspace, or ctrl-alt-F1.  The only way to get out is to ctrl-alt-del
and wait for it to reboot.

I was forced to downgrade to the original Xorg packages to get graphics mode back.

That is not good enough.  Always specify the exact name-version-release,
otherwise the second a new update comes out, your comment is no longer

Run "rpm -q xorg-x11" and paste the results.  Also always attach your
X server log and config file to every X bug report as individual uncompressed
file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment feature - even if
you think the log/config file may not be useful.  They always tell
developers useful information 99.9% of the time that is helpful in
diagnosing things.

Thanks in advance.

Setting status to NEEDINFO_REPORTER, and awaiting file attachments and
xorg version.

Christopher can you please post or email the version and xServer log to to Mike.
 I removed my installation of FC4 and will have to spend almost an entire day to
recreate this problem..

Created attachment 119152 [details]
X log file

The version that gave be problems was 6.8.2-37.FC4.48.1
The attached log file is what I think is the log for the failed attempt.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-23 05:16:55 UTC
The attached log file is an unreadable binary file.  Always attach log files
as uncompressed text/plain files so they can be viewed directly in a web

We've released a new update 6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2, which should resolve this
