Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228045
Return from VT switch very very bad (modesetting)
Last modified: 2018-04-11 06:28:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Using i965, intel driver.
When returning from a switch to a VT, X goes nutso.
Will try and dig up a movie, but the thought process is:
"Wow, that's screwy."
"This is probably bad for epileptics."
"It's like it lost vertical/horizontal hold on a old analog TV."
"I didn't know you could *do* that with a LCD."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X.
2. Switch to a VC.
3. Switch back.
Melty vibrating crazy chaos.

Here's some awful video of it. Yay for crappy cell phones.
On my i855GM (on a Dell Latitude X300), I get similar results, but only on the
VT, switching back to X makes things good again.
