Description of problem:
On my IBM ThinkPad T42, using the radeon driver in X.org works fine until the
time when i suspend (S3) and resume. On resume, backlight comes on but screen
stays black with random twitching/flashing once in a while. It looks (to my
untrained eye) like the chip is somehow not properly initialized upon resume.
I've had to install then fglrx driver from rpm.livna.org, and although id much
rather be using the X.org driver, the fglrx actually resumes nicely.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora on a T42 with radeon RV350 video
2. login, then close the lid and wait for system to suspend
3. open the lid and wait for system to resume
System resumes, but video never comes back properly. It doesn't stay black either.
Video should resume correctly, leaving me with a password prompt or working
