Description Leslie Brooks 2006-12-08 10:20:53 EST
Description of problem:  I installed FC6 on a Dell Poweredge 300 server with
built-in ATI Rage IIC graphics; installation went without any obvious errors. 
Rebooting worked until the graphical login screen appeared; at this point the
screen had obvious texture corruption (rectangles of wild colors and wierd
patterns).  The 'Username' entry box was visible, but typing did not display any
text and I was unable to login.  I was able to boot to runlevel 3 and login
without any problem; I then did 'yum -y update' and rebooted but the screen was
still corrupted.  I installed four or five times, both from DVD ISO and CD ISO
just to make sure there was no problem with the media.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:  Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install on PC with ATI Rage IIc
2.  Reboot
Actual results:  Corrupted graphical login screen and unable to login.

Expected results:  Clean graphics and able to login

I forgot to mention that Fedora 5 works fine on this system.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

X logfile

This is the X logfile before I deleted xorg.conf.  It still refers to the
Number 9 video card that I (temporarily) put into the system so I could have a
graphical interface, but correctly shows the ATI as the primary (and at this
time the only) display device.

Xorg configuration file

This is the file from before I put the Number 9 card in the system (and of
course before I deleted xorg.conf to force a clean autodetect and initialize).

Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
