Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182993
Text modes garbled after runlevel 5 is reached
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:25 EST
Description of problem:
After reaching runlevel 5 (Diamond 2000 3D video adapter) everything runs great
until a virtual console is opened, telinit 3 is run from a terminal, or the
system is shut down. Instead of a text screen, I get a graphics image -- a
pink border around a rectangle filled with vertical blue and black stripes, but
an effort to place text into the rectangle is seen in a garbled form. I
intalled Fedora Core 2 and the system runs correctly, so it appears to be a
problem between X11 and the kernel with this video card. I reinstalled FC4
several times from several different sets of disks, and this unwanted behavior
occurred every time. If I boot to runlevel 3, things are normal until I start
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
See above. On my machine, any action to get to what should be a text screen
from an X session (terminal 7) results in a garbled screen.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.open a virtual console, run telinit 3, or shut down
Additional info: I know this is weird. I see no bug about it, and my post on
fedora forum produced no insight into the problem. I would think it was
hardware related except that the hardware runs fine in FC 2. I would much
rather be running FC4 for its software and appearance. I hope FC 5 will not
have this problem.

From e-mail: xorg-x11 version is 6.8.2-31.
Please, upgrade to x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2 and see if it works.

I did upgrade as suggested, and the problem is resolved with
the upgrade. I thank Olivier Baudron for useful advice on this.
