Description of problem:
After updating FC4 to kernel-2.6.15-1.1830, I noticed that when the boot sequence is done, my graphical login screen is displayed very messed up to a point I can hardly make up what's in there. However, when I do CTRL-ALT-F1 and switch to a text console then CTRL-ALT-F7 to go back to the graphical screen, the screen shows normal.
Not so critical bug, but nevertheless, annoying. This problem was not there when I used kernel-2.6.14-1.1656 before the upgrade.
I'm seeing this on a Compaq Evo N610c laptop which has ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 video card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Arrive at graphical login screen
3. Graphical screen scrambled/messed up/unclear
This has been fixed in 2.6.15-1.1831
