Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 195626
No mouse and very wrong colors when returning from text mode
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
If I change to text mode from X and return then are the colors completly messed
up and/or the mouse pointer is gone. See attached screenshot.
The only way to "fix" it is to reboot, but this doesn't fix the problem always.
Sometimes do I have to reboot again, before the GDM and the Gnome Desktop gets
the correct colors again.
On top of that, is the curser in forms (e.g. in Firefox or Thunderbird) also
messed up. When using the curser keys the curser leaves a trail of its self.
When I try to take a screenshot of that, it gets fixed.
Another way to fix the curser problem is to scroll the text out of the form, and
then back again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am not sure if it is a Xorg problem, so please let me know, what version
numbers would be interested.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. E.g. Ctrl+Alt+F4
My hardware is:
Mainboard: Asus A8N-VM CSM with nForce 430 chipset.
I am using the onboard graphicscard which uses a shared memory of 16MB. Could be
bug have something to do what that?
