Description mjm 2000-10-03 09:50:32 EDT
On my system with Redhat 7.0 installed with a 3dfx Voodoo 3 3000 AGP card,
when I am in runlevel
5 and wish to switch to another tty by using Ctrl-Alt-F1 through
Ctrl-Alt-F6, it works fine.  However,
when I switch back to XDM using Ctrl-Alt-F7, I lose the Redhat logo in the
upper left, and I am
left just with the login/password prompt.

Thanks,

Mike Madden

I see this too, but only with XFree86 4.  Does the link in /etc/X11/X point to
XFree86, or XF86_something?
Comment 2 mjm 2000-10-09 09:16:30 EDT
/etc/X11/X points to /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86.

Thanks,

Mike

Can you try our latest XFree86 in Rawhide and see if it fixes this for you.
Be sure to get an updated Mesa as well.
