i810 driver - cursor invisible after switching to textmode
Last modified: 2018-04-11 02:46:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Using i810 driver for Intel 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02) on a
Dell Latitude D505.
After hibernate/resume, or after switching to textmode (Ctrl-Alt-F1) and back to
X (Ctrl-Alt-F7) the cursor is invisible. You can still use and move the mouse,
you can identify where it is by tooltips showing up, and windows becoming active
(with sloppy focus), but the cursor is invisible.
You can work around this bug, by setting the Option SWCursor, however this
disable direct rendering.
Possibly related: when switching between an external monitor and the LCD
display, the cursor graphics are mangled, with a ghost shadow of apparently
random graphics on the edge of the cursor.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X version 126.96.36.199-3.fc7
kernel version 2.6.21-1.3116.fc7 (i686)
Disappearing cursor: always
Mangled cursor: unknown
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press Ctrl-Alt-F1
2. Press Ctrl-Alt-F7
Normal X behaviour
What version of xorg-x11-drv-i810 is this with?
$ rpm -q xorg-x11-drv-i810
Still doesn't work in xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.0.0-3.fc7
However, using the 'intel' driver rather than the 'i810' driver, it works perfectly.
Retried with xorg-x11-drv-i810-188.8.131.52.fc7. Still same result.
