Description Andre Robatino 2006-12-28 16:32:25 EST
Description of problem:
  I installed a KWorld Global TV Terminator card, which is SAA7134.  It works
fine using tvtime, but it's impossible to restart X afterwards (though X
continues to work fine up to when the restart is attempted).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install a SAA7134 TV tuner card.
2.  Put the line "options saa7134 card=65 tuner=54" to allow detection (it isn't
detected otherwise).
3.  Watch TV using tvtime.
4.  Log out, which causes an X restart attempt.
Actual results:
  X won't restart.  A text-based X configuration tool offers to let me try to
reconfigure X.  This fails to get X working again.  However, upon a reboot, X
works normally again.

Expected results:
  X should work normally.

Additional info:
  Using Intel 82865G integrated video.  I checked that the trigger for the
problem is using tvtime to watch TV.  If I don't watch TV, then X works normally
on logout.  I'm assuming this is a kernel bug since only a reboot fixes it (AFAICT).

  Actually it's only necessary to put "options saa7134 card=65" in
modprobe.conf, specifying the tuner isn't necessary.  It doesn't affect the bug
Comment 3 Andre Robatino 2007-01-19 11:29:41 EST
  Still exists in kernel-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6.
Comment 4 Andre Robatino 2007-06-03 15:07:45 EDT
  Still exists in FC7 kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.
Comment 5 Andre Robatino 2007-07-20 23:07:41 EDT
  Still exists in kernel-  BTW, the problem does NOT happen when
using Fedora's new xawtv instead of tvtime to view TV.  Go figure.
Comment 6 Andre Robatino 2007-12-11 03:09:55 EST
  Does not happen any more with F8 and the latest kernel.  Closing since I'm no
longer using F7 and can't check it there.
