Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188989
xorg crashes on trident cyberblade at 1024x768
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
Reinstalling on a box that previously ran FC2 without incident, X now crasshes a
random short ammount of time after startup. The hardware is a Trident
CyberBlade/i1 (rev 6a) built into the motherboard of a VIA system. Most times
the system just hangs but on one occasion there was screen corruption - vertical
stipes in the centre third of the screen that increased in number every few seconds.
Bizzarely this only happens at a resolutuon of 1024x768 (both 70Hz both 60Hz
refresh). Running at 800x600 the system is rock solid.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/issue
Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux)
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-drv-trident
The FC5 release had the problem, updated via yum update and the problem remains.
Every time booting in to X with resolution at 1024x768 - within 10 mins or so
the system will lock up. Still stable after hours at 800x600
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to runlevel 5
2. wait for crash
X hangs, keayboard and mouse non functional => hit the big red button. One time
there was screen corruption
Stability at higher resolutions
