Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241225
use of the Intel development driver gives odd rhgb output
Last modified: 2009-05-19 15:31:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Using the Intel video driver on my Toshiba Satellite A105 (915GM video) the
graphic screen during boot is blank (blue background only with mouse cursor).
Additionally, if something causes the display to show a failure, the text is at
least 128 point. Once the user interface starts, all is well.
Use of the i810 driver works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use Intel driver in xorg.conf
Blank graphic screen with huge text if details are displayed
Normal rhgb screen with normal-sized text
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img

xorg.conf using Intel driver
Could we get /var/log/Xorg.*.log as well?

log using Intel driver
This log is from a boot using the Intel driver which results in only a blue
graphics screen (with pointer) but no display. If text is displayed, as with
the network taking time to get its address, the font is huge (the "Hide
Details" link takes about 2/3 of the screen horizontally).

X setup log
Provided Xorg.0.log and Xorg.setup.log, as requested. Anything else?
I don't know about the details of rhgb, but if the regular X session is
working correctly, maybe something is wrong with just the boot splash stuff.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
rhgb is dead dead dead.
