dri causes hard hang
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
startx causes a hard hang. I hear the monitor click, then a very dark reddish
screen, then a "no signal to monitor".
ctl-alt-backspace doesn't work, neither does ctl-alt-del.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I have an amd64 box, with radeon 8500dv on agp.
If I comment out dri from xorg.conf, it works. And, really strange, after it
works, if I logout of X, uncomment dri, it also works!
Always happens after recent ( past month ) of xorg-x11-server yum updates.
I've attached Xorg.0.log from the failed X login. No errors I can see.
Created attachment 131114 [details]
log from first X login - dri enabled
This is still a problem with fc6t2 updated to August 9.
Anything I can provide to fix this?
Can you attach the X log from FC6? Or even better, an FC7 LiveCD.
