Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18215
tty switch messes up XDM
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 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.
I see this too, but only with XFree86 4. Does the link in /etc/X11/X point to
XFree86, or XF86_something?
/etc/X11/X points to /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86.
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.
Did it solve the problem?
XFree86-4.0.3-9 is avail at:
I have the following XFree86 packages installed under Redhat 7.1, and I still
experience the problem.
Try the 4.0.3-14 release from:
It should solve this problem for you.
