Description of problem:
Latest xorg update hangs while starting (xorg process using 100% cpu) or causes entire system to freeze (can't ssh in).
This has been duplicated on 3 different machines with 2 and 3 video cards. Removing all but one card seems to fix it. Seems not to matter it it's AGP or PCI.
Have fiddled with several different X configurations. Starting on X on all screens, some screens, and one screen. Always produces same result.
I feel this is not a duplicate of Bugs 168940, 168937, 168919, or 165116, but may have common cause.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 + all updates on a system with multiple ATI Radon 7000
2. Reboot, (re)start X, etc
Actual Results: Black screens. Sometimes can SSH in and see X throttling CPU, sometimes SSH machine is fully hung and connection times out.
Expected Results: Graphical bliss.
I'm seeing the same thing. I have saved copies of Xorg.log files from a hung vs
successful run, if they help.
xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2 is the current update. Please upgrade to that
and indicate if the problem still exists or not. If it does, attach your
X server log and config file to the bug report as individual uncompressed
Tested new update on fresh install with 1, 2, and 3 cards. It works.
Thanks for testing.
Setting status to "ERRATA" (fixed in xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2)
