Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 195854
Display blocked by "rss-glx-gnome-screensaver" II
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
After choosing one of the "rss-glx" modules in the "gnome-screensaver"
preferences and locking the screen, it is impossible to quit the
screensaver gracefully. The unlock dialog pops up, but after entering
the password, the screen turns black and the system just sits there
without responding to user interaction. It is necessary to kill the
corresponding process from a virtual console to unlock the screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open "gnome-screensaver" preferences.
2. Choose an "rss-glx" module.
3. Lock the screen.
The screensaver sets in correctly with enabled direct rendering. After
entering the password to unlock the screen, nothing happens, and the
screensaver does not respond anymore.
The screensaver should unlock the screen.
The same happens, if the screensaver sets in after the given time
interval, and it was set to lock the screen when active.
However, when the screensaver sets in without locking the screen,
moving the mouse or hitting a key lets it exit gracefully.
Seems to be driver issue ("xorg-x11-drv-savage") since on my desktop
system with a "Radeon 7200" graphics card, everything works correctly.
Assigning to "Fedora Core devel".
